What's Happened to My Calgary Favorites?

sharonanne | Sep 4, 2006 09:32 PM

I've been out of the country since January other than a week here and there but when I read this board people aren't mentioning the places I expected to see. Have they gone downhill or is this just a matter of location? I live in the NW and don't get into Inglewood or what we call "the deep south" often.

I was pleased to see Pegasus because that would have been on my list of really good places.

But, what happened to Mescalero or Catch? We like River Cafe but it's a pain to park nearby so it just doesn't come up on our radar often. We had a good meal at Saltlik (Saltlick?) but can't call it a regular favorite. Had a bad meal at Teatro and haven't been back.

We've been to my favorite Asian places because there is NO good Asian food in Baltimore, Scotland of Italy which is where I've been when absent but what happened to the sort of upscale but not overly formal places I mentioned? I did see someone mention Joey Tomato and it's still pretty decent.

Oh, speaking of expensive and formal but it was good when we last went, is La Chaumiere still there?
