In Calgary for two days... can you recommend something?

Hey all this is my first post here.

I'm flying in from New York City to Calgary for two and a half days and wonder what are some of the meals I must try while I'm in the city.

I prefer less touristy meals. For example, whenever someone comes to NYC, I make them avoid the flashy and overpriced restaurants at Times Square/Midtown and bring them to hole-in-the-walls in Brooklyn/Queens/SoHo (attached photo is sushi gorging in Brooklyn).

Things I like:
- NYC Pizza (Could be interesting to compare Calgary pizza to New York pizza)
- Italian
- Asian food
- Pastries

Not a huge fan of:
- Greek food
- Asian fusion

Any recommendations would be great. I'm looking forward to going about and sampling some of the eateries that the city has to offer.
