Grand rooms offering the ultimate in fine dining, cutting-edge bistros serving up the latest in food and wine, and unique ethnic and casual dining spots. You won't find this much dining diversity anywhere else in Calgary.
Whether you’re looking for that special anniversary restaurant or just a place to grab a bite with friends and coworkers after work, downtown Calgary has something for everyone. There are over 360 choices downtown. Our highest concentration of restaurants is along the four blocks of Stephen Avenue Walk.
Spring is in the air, and that means patio season. Many of your favourite restaurants on Stephen Avenue and beyond will be dusting off their patio-furniture and getting ready for the sunny days ahead. Book your Stampede party, impress a potential client, or just have an after work bite with some co-workers.
Downtown Calgary is your dining playground
The revolution has been statisfied! - We hungered for bold cuisine and it was served to us by the platter. Thanks for a great The Big Taste Calgary, our annual dining program. Top chefs in the heart of the city prepare three course set menus at pre-set prices for lunch and dinner. The 2013 event is now over but mark February 28 to March 9, 2014 on your calendars now. This is an event you do not want to miss!
Until then, don't forget to tag your gastronomic exploits on social media with #FoodiesYYC to connect with fellow food-fanatics, restaurants and chefs. Instagram pictures tagged #FoodiesYYC will be added to the feed on the left.
