Taste - 1st Street, Calgary

ennui | Aug 31, 2009 06:45 PM

I've seen posts about the new 1st Street rejuvenation, but I don't think anyone has mentioned Taste yet. I think Calgary needs more little funky places like this. First, gorgeous room. I loved the wood, steel, concrete thing they have going on. Menu - small plates for sharing, tasting boards and snacks for the table (pretzel bits, olives.) I loved my tomato and buffalo mozzarella salad and the beef tartare was nice and spicy. My friends and I really dove into the wines by the glass and loved every one. The list is small but super funky. When I went last week they were doing Spanish whites and Southern French reds. The server mentioned that they switch out the regions every month. A fun night out! Anyone else been in?
