Notable has called Calgary’s Montgomery community home for 13 years. The restaurant offers a cozy setting to enjoy dishes like the rotisserie chicken, steak tartare and grilled salmon. And good news for those with gluten sensitivities or allergies, as most of Notable’s menu can be made gluten-free upon request.

Borough Bar and Grill

Nestled in the University District, Borough Bar and Grill opened in the summer of 2021 and offers a tasty menu featuring locally sourced ingredients. Consider trying one of the “block” experiences, which are shareable meals featuring a whole rotisserie chicken, cedar plank salmon, AAA ribeye or veal chop milanese that are ideal for two to four people. And with more than a hundred bottles in its cellar, there’s a perfect drink pairing for every meal.
