Lunch/Dinner in the 'Hood (YYC)

Lainey1978 | Sep 9, 2009 02:49 PM

Hello again,

I live in the 'hood (well, close--West Dover), and I'm looking for decent food nearby. I figure there must be good stuff on International Avenue, right? But then I've heard some bad stuff about the restaurants in the area, too (like service at the Ibex is supposed to be terrible, and I was horrified to learn that the East Gate has a long rap sheet with the Food Inspection Agency (or whatever they're called in Calgary)). But sometimes I just want something good, maybe a little out of the ordinary, and nearby.

There's a little bar within walking distance from my house called Oliver Green's (used to be Perry's Point of View), which has surprisingly good food. Unfortunately he got rid of his wonderful-sounding Mediterranean menu, but he still has a lot of good stuff. But what about the rest of West Dover? Dover? Forest Lawn? Forest Heights? Marlborough? I turn to you guys and gals because I figure if anyone will know, you will. Thanks!
