Each March, Avenue announces its list of Calgary’s Best Restaurants, which highlights and celebrates our city’s culinary scene. From this list, we hand-pick restaurants and create a series of dinners through which Avenue readers can enjoy the finest dining experiences in the city.
Together with some of Calgary’s top-ranked restaurants, we create unique experiences exclusively for Avenue readers. Individual tickets are priced at $145 + gst, full passports can be purchased at $785 + gst (10% saving) and half passports are $415 + gst (5% saving).
Partial proceeds from the 2019 Avenue Dinner Series will be donated to The Alex Community Food Centre and the Alberta Cancer Foundation. For more information on these charities, visit thealexcfc.ca and albertacancer.ca
2019 Participating Restaurants
River Café – May 15
Calling all foodies! We are hosting an educational night of fine dining at River Café. You’ll learn about our city’s eco-climate and what we can all do to help ensure our native wildlife thrives. Chef Matthias Fong has created a delicious menu, exclusively for Avenue readers, showcasing the best of Calgary’s produce.
Rouge – June 23
We will be hosting the city’s most glamourous afternoon party in the gardens of Rouge. This isn’t your standard garden party — there won’t be a burnt bratwurst or pink flamingo in sight! Join us for an afternoon of fine dining in the sunshine. Guests are encouraged to wear pink or white and partial proceeds will be donated to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
Foreign Concept – August 22
Join us for a unique multi-sensory experience. Chef/owner Duncan Ly and executive chef Jinhee Lee have created a one-night-only menu showcasing some unusual Asian ingredients. We will profile each of the flavours and you will have the chance to see, smell and touch each of the ingredients in their raw form.
Little Leboenon – October 3
This pop-up restaurant is brought to you by Model Milk and Pigeonhole owner, Justin Leboe. The space above Model Milk will be transformed into a Middle Eastern tent and the menu will focus on Lebanese food. There will be two seatings so please select the ticket option best suited to your group.
