Welcome to Avenue‘s annual celebration of dining out in Calgary, with the 2024 lists of the Best Overall and Best New Restaurants, a new recognition for restaurants with great accessibility, judges’ sentimental favourites and the results of our annual online voting ballot that lets readers weigh in.
Best Accessible Restaurants in Calgary
This year marks the debut of a new list of Best Calgary Restaurants — those deserving of recognition for accessibility. The winner and runners-up were selected by a panel of judges who brought to the table their lived experiences with a range of physical disabilities, sight impairment and neurodiversity. Here are their picks for dining destinations in Calgary that provide exceptional hospitality for all.
When it comes to Calgary’s best restaurants, our readers like to have a say, so each year we run an online ballot on Avenue‘s website for them to nominate and then vote for their favourites. This year, we tallied more than 32,000 votes across 31 categories, everything from Best Burgers and Best Barbecue to the Best of the ’Burbs. Here are the winners and runners-up in order of most votes received.
