Inspired Cuisine in Calgary

Source: Travel Alberta

Calgary is earning a reputation for fine dining on the international scene. Creative concepts grounded in local traditions and fresh Alberta ingredients are the order of the day. Popular eateries have developed relationships with the local producers who deliver new meaning to the phrase "from farm to fork." Much of what hits the plate is artisan-made, whether it's craft beer, house-made charcuterie, or hand-ground bison burgers.

The food here is serious and bold but never pretentious. Top chefs are ditching the white tablecloths for lively, crowded, casual eateries and opening "second label" spots - suburban diners, trattorias, bistros and funky food trucks."
