I'm in Calgary for the week on business, traveling with an vegetarian co-worker from North India. Even though I'm from Edmonton (Go Oilers!), it's his first trip to Calgary, and I'd like to show off the city to him as much as possible. This includes dining opportunities.
I would love to hear your recommendations for good Indian restaurants in Calgary, good vegetarian restaurants, and other good restaurants with a wide selection of vegetarian dishes (I'm a dedicated carnivore, and I love me some Alberta beef). We're staying at the Blackfoot Inn, so if you could highlight restaurants that are close to that (if at all possible), that would be appreciated. I'm not bad at navigating through the city, but I'm also very talented at taking the road less travelled, and would prefer not to take him on a magical mystery tour.
Thanks in advance for your suggestions - I'll post a report on where we eat!
