Find wild boar on the menu at The Lake House.

Game meats are often lean (think rabbit and elk), flavourful (like duck and boar) and definitely tasty. Lucky for us Calgary’s restaurant scene is very game-friendly. Here are six of our favourite places to get your game on.

Bonterra Trattoria

This classic Italian restaurant offers a breaded rabbit dish with polenta bread pudding and incorporates game into its pasta dishes, such as linguini with wild boar bacon. It’s the perfect spot for diners newer to the game scene.

The Belvedere

The Belvedere offers a variety of tasty game dishes such as venison, bison and duck. The trio of tartare starter is a real highlight and includes bison, beef and venison with egg confit.
