The Altadore (in Calgary)

Just tried The Altadore for lunch and I think it will be great - soon. They are located in the old Alexis location on 16th Street SW and they are open but just unofficially. They still have a few bugs to work out and apparently they are planning a Grand Opening in the next few weeks.

The menu is marvelous and the flavour combinations are very exciting. I had a grilled chicken sandwich with sage pesto, double cream brie and sliced green apples. Yummmmm! A side Caesar salad and some shared sweet potato chips and it was lovely lunch. My friend had a flat bread pizza with bacon and sweet onions and said it was good - how could it not be?! Two coffees and our lunch was $25 - very reasonable.

The decor is a bit stark and dark but very modern and has a bit of a club feel. I can't wait to come back in the late afternoon for a glass of wine and an appy on the patio - not the weather for it today! Anyhow, they do have a few bugs to work out but when they do I am certain they will become a favourite stop in the neighbourhood. I know I look forward to returning.
