The Eden

A little bit of France has come to Inglewood with the new Eden Bistro here in Calgary. The place and food spell out comfort, warm wooden chairs, small tables and great European style food. This is the perfect place to hang out on these cold Calgary nights.

Fence & Post

Check out the new Fence & Post restaurant in Cochrane. Only 15 mins from northwest Calgary. Chris Hartman and Melanie Martzoukos and the new crew behind the place. Great warm friendly place with some killer food. They have a wine and beverage list that compliments the local food, a great way to look at a menu.

Cotto

I was lucky enough to get to go and photograph the new Cotto restaurant in Calgary late last year. They have the coolest 3D Wine list in the city, and their dishes are wonderful. The Gamberi Panzanella and the Arancini are two favs. Check them out in Kensington.

Bar Von Der Fels

By far my new favorite place in Calgary these days is the little wine bar, Bar Von Der Fels. The place has the feeling of stepping into a little wine bar in Paris, where it’s all about the great food and great wine. This is a small place in Calgary seating maybe 30 people, packed, but so worth it. Great atmosphere, incredibly tasty food and wonderful service, what else do you need. If you’re downtown check it out.

Nam, Vietnamese Kitchen

Had the pleasure to go photograph Nam, a great new Vietnamese Kitchen that opened a few months back here in Calgary for The Globe and Mail. The place feels like an upscale Vietnamese restaurant but eats and costs like a regular one. This is my kind of place, great hearty bowls of food at a good price, plus close to where I hang out downtown. It will be a regular spot for me.

Calgary’s Deane House

I was lucky last week and got an assignment to photograph the newly minted Deane House in Calgary for the Globe and Mail. Chef Jamie Harling is cooking up a storm there using local Alberta ingredients; and the bread he bakes is simply amazing! Owner Sal Howell, who also owns The River Cafe has done an incredible job of the place and I plan to be there as a guest soon. I am a huge fan of great local food, prepared and presented well. Check out the Globe’s review of the place here. If your in town or traveling through, do yourself a favour and check it out.
