Where: 237 8th Ave SE

This hard to find, but totally delish Turkish spot is located in the same building as Arts Commons. If you're wandering Downtown and looking to try something new, or heading to a show at the theatre and need a quick bite, this is the perfect spot!

It's no secret that Alloy is amazing all around. They were voted one of the best restaurants in 2017, so of course they're a Calgarian favourite! What makes them obscure, though, is their unique location in Downtown Calgary, and their gorgeous decor! It's perfect for a romantic evening with loved ones.

Cozy Kitchen 

Where: 5708 1st Street SE

As Calgary's only Bosnian restaurant, Cozy Kitchen should definitely be on your radar! Plenty of Calgarians are all about trying new cuisines, and this spot is sure to provide you with a super unique experience.

Patisserie Du Soleil

Where: 2 locations in Calgary

Who in their right mind would turn down a sweet treat? Patisserie Du Soleil is like a little slice of Paris right here in Calgary, and even better for us, they've recently opened up a second location to spread the sweetness all around our city!

Rau Bistro

Where: 4105 4th Street NW

Everyone loves Pho because it's quick and easy, but the detail and care put into every single dish at Rau Bistro is anything but minimal. They're always serving up the perfect comfort foods in the most unexpected place; a super casual strip mall!

Workshop Kitchen + Culture

Where: 608 1st Street SW

If you're really looking to step outside of your comfort zone in a classy environment, look no further than Workshop Kitchen + Culture. Their tasting menu changes daily, so you can try something new with every visit!
