Calgary's Hidden Restaurant Has A Secret Entrance & There Are Only 8 Seats

Alberta's newest venue is a prime example of how amazing things can come in small packages. You soon be able to dine at a tiny eight-seat restaurant. So make sure to mark your calendar to visit EIGHT. Calgary's hidden restaurant opens on Friday, January 17, 2020, and you are going to want to experience it first-hand.

There is no shortage of speakeasies or secret spots to eat and drink in our province. For example, we have two bars behind a bookcase (Alchemy and Betty Lou's Library).

The latest addition is a hidden dining option in Calgary's East Village. What makes it so special is its size, and you need to find the secret entrance to get in.

EIGHT will serve fresh Canadian food and aims to define what is Canadian cuisine.

In a press release, Chef Darren MacLean said his food focuses on local ingredients and the people who make up the cultural mosaic that is Canada. 

“The mystery and theatre of immersive dining at EIGHT does more than deliver exquisitely delicious food, drink and fun. This restaurant advances the talk, taste and experience of Canada,” he said.

The limited number of guests allows you to enjoy a prime view of the chef preparing and a chance to chat with the other foodies at the experience.

This is a taste of Canada like you've never had before and it's guaranteed to be one of the most unique dining experiences in the country.

Due to the limited number of seats inside, you will need to make reservations. It will be open Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from 6:30 p.m.

To claim a seat, you will need to visit their website. Before your booking, you will get all the details of how to find your way inside the discreet entrance.

We'll give you a hint: it's located in the back of NUPO restaurant.

Once you step inside the sleek black and marble restaurant, you are in for a real culinary delight. 

There will be a daily tasting menu that highlights Canadian ingredients and flavours. 

The current eight-course tasting menu will be available from Friday, January 17 until mid-March and costs $185 per person.
