Being a long-time lurker of this excellent website (actually almost every day!), I've taken the plunge to ask this question that I've been unable to narrow down with the search function. I'm going strawberry picking out near Strathmore with two friends and then we'll have a sit-down lunch in (or near) Calgary.
We'll be coming back into the city via the Trans Canada which opens up a whole realm of possibilities outside our normal experience (we all live in the Crowfoot area). We're adventurous and prefer quality over quantity; made-from-scratch and /or local ingredients when possible and small portions of meat. I would choose Anpurna but it's closed temporarily. Thank you for any suggestions offered, just don't want to go into downtown or far SE or far SW.
