It might be cliché to say that nothing brings people together like food, but in the case of Avenue’s Best Restaurants Tasting Experience, it couldn’t be more true. At this exciting tasting experience, 23 of the restaurants on Avenue’s 2023 Best Restaurants list will come together for one night only to serve hundreds of Calgarians samples of their most delectable dishes.
Avenue’s 2023 Best Restaurants Tasting Experience is a homecoming of sorts, as it’s our first year back hosting this event since 2020. We are looking forward to welcoming you on March 23, 2023 at Hotel Arts for the foodie event of the season.
Tickets are still available while quantities last at showpass.com.
