Best Caesars in YYC

I realize that this is Chowhound, not Boozehound...but I'm pretty certain that you Calgary foodies can help me out on this one.

A couple friends and I came up with the idea of going on a "Caesar Crawl". Basically just hopping from bar to bar trying out each one's Caesars.

I think for historical purposes we would probably start it at the Westin, and then move around from there. I'm looking for recommendations as to what might be good places. So far I know we will hit up the Laurier Lounge for their Tequila & Beef Jerky Caesar...that's about all I got so far.

  1. This is a great idea. Caesar's steak house is a must. The lounge is awesome.
    If I come up with any other places I'll let you know.

      Yeah, forgot to add Caesar's to the list...I was a little tired when I made the initial post.

    2. Adding link to Caesar's.

      1. Tequila Caesars are my drink of choice! Love this idea.

        Would suggest Antonio's Garlic Clove for their Garlic Caesar.

            Thanks 23skidoo...

            As a side note, we love Garlic Clove - my fav dish is their wobbly chops. Goes great with the garlic caesar.

        2. Wellington's has wonderful Ceasars.

          1. The fact it has tomato, clam, spice and lime in it automatically qualifies it as "food" in my eyes ;-)

            I haven't been there in ages, but didn't Palamino Smokehouse used to have a "mix it yourself" Caesar bar for Sunday bruches with something like 100 different hot sauces and condiments to try? I'm sure I read that somewhere. Seems like a good idea to me.

            I like the way I make them at home best... 2oz Absolut Peppar Vodka over ice in a short glass, lots of Worchestershire, lots of fresh lime, dash of tabasco or hot sauce of choice, top with Motts, ground pepper. No rim, no straw.

              River Cafe makes theirs with pepper infused vodka. It was tasty but I didn't particularly like their rimmer (not sure what it was).
