With several new menus and deals launching at Calgary eateries, this is the perfect time to try a new spot or re-visit an old favourite. Here's what you need to know about the latest food-related openings, news and events in Calgary.
Ordering food in Calgary just got a little easier with the launch of the free ClickDishes app in January. Founded by the team behind the Nomme app, ClickDishes offers services like letting you order take-out in advance so that it's ready when you arrive at the restaurant and letting you order and pay using the app when dining in. The app can currently be used at select eateries like Carl's Jr., Opa and Koryo. You can request an access code to try the app at try.clickdishes.com.
Double Zero is the new place to be on Saturday nights. This past weekend, the restaurant began offering its new After Dark special, which will be offered on Saturday nights at its downtown location. Starting at 9 p.m., you can spend the night enjoying $5 glasses of prosecco and plenty of great music.
New Location! New Look! New Menu! Same great Las Canarias team, ready to serve you! Operation Hours: Monday to Thursday - 4:00 PM to 10:00 PM Friday and Saturday - 11:00 AM to 1:00 AM Sundays - 11:00 AM to 9:00 PM New Location: Las Canarias Spanish Paella & Tapas Bar is located at 1129 17 Ave SW, Calgary, AB.
Las Canarias closed the doors to its Royal Oak restaurant at the end of 2016. But thankfully, it recently re-opened in the space formerly occupied by La Vida Loca in Lower Mount Royal. The large menu, which features a range of Spanish cuisine, offers several seafood appetizers, flatbreads, paellas and tapas dishes featuring bravas potatos, coconut shrimp, chorizo pate and more.

It may be best known for its tasty tacos, but Native Tongues Taqueria is also a great brunch destination. The Beltline restaurant launched its new brunch menu at the end of January, and it features several must-try dishes. New additions to the menu include pollo frito (featuring fried chicken and doughnuts with chorizo gravy and avocado), baked enchiladas (with scrambled eggs, tortillas, enchilada sauce, queso and crema) and huevos divorciados (with tostadas, fried eggs, avocado, salsa verde and roja and queso).
Make plans to dine at The Lake House to try its new $45 prix fixe menu while enjoying the beautiful view of Lake Bonavista. The prix fixe menu features three locally-inspired courses, and is offered starting at 5 p.m. from Monday to Thursday. The menu is available in limited quantities, so make sure you don't miss out.
