Restos for the weekend - Calgary

Char | Nov 22, 200507:55 PM     16

My boyfriend and I are coming to town for a weekend in December and we're trying to map out the places to eat at. Preferably we'd like to try out a tasting menu at a nice restaurant ($100-ish range before tax, tip, and wine) for an evening, and maybe lunch at another nice resto one day. It's a total of 3 days worth of meals and it would be nice if we could try a wide variety during that time. We're willing to try anything at least once so no limitations there, but we would like to keep within a budget for the other meals. The River Cafe and Il Sogno has been suggested and if anyone has an opinion on which is better for lunch or dinner, it would also be greatly appreciated! And also, is there anything we absolutely must try while in Calgary? (we're from Montreal) Lastly, my bf has quite an apetite so places with good portions are preferred.

Any suggestions welcome! Thanks in advance :)
