Calgary Business dinner
Going back to Calgary next week (visiting from Vancouver) and I'm wondering where to go with some customers for dinner. We've been to Carvers, Tangerine Supper Club, River Cafe and another one next door to the Fairmont Palliser (can't remember the name but it was new last year and excellent)
Where should I hit up this year? I understand that it is Dine-out Calgary so this may or may not affect our ability to get in somewhere.
I second Chef's Table. Capo and Rush are really good as well. Chef's Table and Capo are quite small, so they both have a really nice intimate setting. Rush has really good food and the decor is beautiful.
Divino's, Murrietta's, Blink and The Trib are all on 8th Avenue and easy walking from the Palliser.
I second the comment for Belvedere. 2 reasons - 1. They have excellent food and are PERFECT for a business dinner with clients and 2. They should be able to get you in.
Also, if you are having trouble getting in, try The Trib Steakhouse. We hosted my husband's 40th birthday dinner here and every single person (20 guests) loved their dinner. The lamb leg (looks like something Fred Flinstone would eat) was incredibly impressive and fabulous.
Also, never had a bad meal at Chef's table but it is probably one of our most expensive restaurants.
Nobody has mentioned Alloy - this is a fantastic choice for a business dinner. Guests are always impressed by the decor and food both. Service is great and food at Alloy is discussed alot on this board. They have a bit of a larger room than some places so this should help with availability too.
Last if you want to venture off the beat and path more, one of the hottest new places is NoTable. This would be great if you could get a reservation (they accept them but are booked well in advance). Worth a call though!
