Nothing helps to quell the chill of winter quite like a delicious meal. Luckily, Moxie’s has got you covered. Calgarians can head to the restaurant’s Shawnessy location to check out the brand-new, first-ever Moxie’s Test Kitchen, where executive chef Brandon Thordarson and his team are cooking up new creations that could make their way into other Moxie’s locations.

The main goal of the Test Kitchen, aside from serving amazing food and drink, is to get feedback from diners so that Moxie’s can continue to improve and evolve its guests’ overall dining experience. In other words, a visit to the Shawnessy location will give you and your dining companions an opportunity to taste freshly dreamed-up dishes, sip creative new cocktails and influence the entire dining experience.

“We’re inspired by people, cultures and a passion for food,” says Thordarson, providing some insight into how he and the whole Moxie’s team are approaching this culinary experiment.

At the Test Kitchen, you can dine on enticing new creations like steamed bao buns or blackened shrimp tacos served with pickled shallots, corn salsa and pico de gallo. You can also taste local craft beers brewed exclusively for the Test Kitchen, or sip on creative cocktails like the Hot Mess, which features botanical peach and orange blossom vodka, strawberries and fresh-pressed lime.

But don’t worry — the Test Kitchen is still serving all the favourites, including the fresh-smashed guacamole and the blackened chicken burger. And no matter what you choose to dine on, you’ll be happy knowing that Moxie’s always cooks with the freshest ingredients including sustainably caught seafood, all-natural chicken, 100% fresh and never frozen Canadian Beef and greenhouse grown veggies.
