Vacay.ca Loves Eating Out in Calgary
Another great reason to celebrate Mother’s Day in Calgary? Dining to die for.
The fact Joe Beef has been voted Canada’s best restaurant isn’t going to come as a surprise to enthusiasts of the nation’s food scene. But many will be shocked that the iconic restaurant’s hometown, Montreal, trails Calgary in the number of entries placed in the 2013 Vacay.ca Top 50 Restaurants in Canada Guide.
The strong showing in the rankings gives Calgary a significant boost and also shows the growing economic trend happening across the country. Chefs who worked around the world are moving back toCalgary or relocating there for the opportunities presented by one of the nation’s wealthiest and fastest-growing urban centres.
In 1999, actor Dylan McDermott ridiculed restaurants in Calgary and vicinity for serving “ketchup for tomato sauce.” It was a damning statement that played into the stereotypes other Canadians had about the prairie city. The Vacay.ca
ranking makes it clear that Calgary has propelled to the upper echelons of fine dining in the country.
“Rouge is one of the best restaurants in the world, not just the country, and the reputations of Model Milk, CHARCUT and others continue to blossom,” says Vacay.ca
managing editor Adrian Brijbassi, who created the Top 50 guide, which was first published in 2012. “Most importantly, what the Vacay.ca
vote shows is how enthusiastic Calgarians are to champion their city’s culinary stars. WhetherCalgary is among the top two or three or four cities in the country for fine dining is a topic of debate, but what is clear through this public vote is that Calgary has more community spirit than any of the nation’s big cities.”
