All of Calgary's NEWEST restaurants right in one place.
The Mash already has multiple locations (Kensington, Legacy, Mahogany) and now they are on the brink of opening two more - one on 17th ave in The Fifth (mixed use building) and one in Marda Loop in Courtyard 33 (mixed use building.)
33 Acres is super popular in Vancouver. I've even been there and I've been basically no where in Vancouver. :D Excited for this brewery to open downtown. It'll be right next to District and Central Taps.
Paris Baguette is a franchise that is expanding into Canada. They have casual sophisticated vibes and serve up desserts, baked goods, and coffee. We may have to wait a long time for this one as expansion timelines are unknown.
Let me tell you, the University District is happening! So many cool businesses are popping up in this new area. Soon Borough Bar & Grill will be added to the mix. This restaurant is part of Murrieta's group and I expect a similar style of food. Expected to open in July.
17th ave is getting an Asian-inspired tapas restaurant. This was previously the nightclub/restaurant Lately.
Did you know Central Taps is brought to you by the same people who brought you Craft Beer Market?! This is right next to the new downtown food hall District.
Who wouldn't want to try this amazing invention that is a cross between a soufflé and a pancake?! Fluffy, light and bouncy, these tasty pancakes will surely change the pancake game. Coming to Kensington first and then other locations planned around Calgary include Chinook Mall, University District and downtown Calgary.
I looooove Earl of Sandwich. It is the king of hangover food. Delicious hot sandwiches and tomato soup that is like no other. I would eat at Earl of Sandwich multiple times per day when in Vegas. Plus drag all my friends there to convert them to Earl of Sandwich fanatics. Opening soon in South Trail Crossing.
Burnin' Bird is part of a collection of restaurants that opened on 17th ave in the mixed use building The Fifth (across from National). As someone who loves a hot chicken sandwich I can't wait to try this.
The restaurant describes themselves as Vietnamese but with a modern twist. I haven't been but the pictures look amazing! Can't wait to try.
A new Hong Kong inspired restaurant secretly opened up in Inglewood. It looks modern and fun! Def on the list to try out.
This new Mediterranean restaurant just opened next to District Food Hall in the beltline. Their websites says it's modern rustic but I couldn't find any pics of the inside or of the food. :D A bit of a mystery!
Also part of the collection of places that opened in The Fifth on 17th Ave. This is a tiny cocktail bar that boasts an active dance floor on weekends. It's on my list to try! Ladies night!
Remember where Jack Astor's was on Macleod trail? It's now a steakhouse! The inside is nice and the food is good, but obviously where this place stands out is the Tomahawk steaks. They offer beef, pork, bison, veal and lamb and it's so freaking good!
I got to visit Banquet Bar for their soft opening and we had a really good time! It's similar to Home & Away or National. It has sporty vibes and mini bowling to play. It's big with lots of TV's. Located in the University District.
Does Calgary have too many pho restaurants? Absolutely not. :D That's why I warmly welcome Pho Pham to the pho fam. Now open in Signal Hill!
Described as a fusion between Canadian, West African, and Caribbean I honestly don't know what to expect from Ellie's and that excites me! I love a creative flavour combo. I'm a little nervous about the space they chose, the location that formerly held Bookers for years, those are some big shoes to fill!
I haven't been to Missy's but from what I've seen it looks like a quirky understated wine bar. More hipster than the usual pretentious wine bars. Also on my list to check out!
District Food Hall is like an upscale mall food court. It's got awesome vendors like Modern Burger and Roy's Korean Kitchen. Super convenient lunch location for downtown workers.
Surfy Surfy is the newest member of the Concorde Group. They're located in Chinook Mall below Double Zero. I haven't been yet but they serve casual Mexican-inspired food (tacos, burgers, salads, bowls and churros).
Daydream by Flora is a plant based cafe serving up toast, wraps, and sandwiches. For drinks you can grab a smoothie, latte or raw juice. Cookies, macrons and cinnamon buns are available as well as other baked goods.
This brunch cafe serves waffles, bubble tea and some lunch items as well. Their smoothies also look amazing!
Cinnamon buns but EXTRA. These gourmet, all vegan cinnamon buns come with a variety of different flavoured toppings. Fruit, chocolate, nuts, and tons of icing, something for everyone! Now open on 17th ave.
I've never been a brunch person but it's starting to grow on me. I'd love to check out Maven, the newest addition to 17th ave. Opened January 10th, Maven features all your traditional brunch fare co-owned with a super cute plant shop Plant It Modern.
