birthday dinner in Calgary

jrabbit2727 Nov 4, 2009 02:40 PM

Hi all, we have recently moved to Calgary from Toronto and I'd like to take my husband out for dinner to celebrate his birthday. I am looking for something formal/funky where the food is interesting and fabulous.

He eats everything. I do not eat meat of any kind or dairy. Fish and seafood are fine.

We've been to Blink and Teatro already....liked both. Would like to try something new.

Suggestions please?

200 8th Ave SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0K7, CA

    I would strongly recommend Rush. I've been there several times and never been disappointed.

      Alloy is consistently good and is my go-to place for a nice meal

          Welcome to Calgary! Partner and I moved here from TO in 2000 and I love to help folks settle.

          You really have to try River Cafe- it's rustic but fine (and at the same time urban- you have to visit to see what I mean) and the food is delightful. They are magicians with seafood there.
