Three Alberta restaurants make enRoute's 30 Best New Restaurants

Well folks, the annual enRoute food issue is out today. And I'm happy to see that Alberta is pulling its weight, with two restaurants in the Top 10, and one in the Top 20. (And Winnipeggers are represented in the Top 20 too, with Oui Bistro and Wine Bar.)

Here is the link to the Top 10 list and article:

And here's the link to the "Next 20" list:

It looks like there are also loads of great new restos in Vancouver. I'm especially intrigued by "The Taco Shack".

Now the question is, has anyone dined at any of these Western Canadian winners? I've been to Edmonton's Skinny Legs and Cowgirls, which is good indeed and I like the fact that they use a lot of organic veggies and meat. It's not perfect, but it has personality and attitude which I think is sorely lacking in Edmonton. I've also been to Blink, but only when the first two chefs (they're on their third in a year, but it seems that has paid off!) were cookin'. Jennifer
