Upscale, mid-range in Calgary?

CuriousCat | Feb 23, 2008 08:40 AM

Hey folks! I'm looking to treat my parents to a nice dinner ... they're in the tax business so the next couple of months is going to be brutal for them, and I'd like to send them off to celebrate come May.

I don't live in town anymore, but have there been any new places that opened within the past few years that has a nice atmosphere (not too formal, but a step up from the Keg) and good food for up to $50/person? (3 courses, not incl wine)

I was thinking along the lines of Murrieta's, but I think they might be a smidge over my budget, plus I have no idea how they've been doing lately. Metropolitan Grill in TD might be too trendy, but definitely bonus points for a place with great or unique atmosphere. (One day I'll make enough to treat them to River Cafe... one day!) They still have 2 kids at home, so they don't get a chance to go out somewhere nice by themselves much.

Thanks in advance!
