Grant and Dorothy Dawson Review Calgary Alberta Restaurants



 Catch of the Day:  Our most recent restaurant finds 

Deepaks’s Dhaba   The food truck setting is not really the best venue for tasting food, and east Indian food especially.

VIN room  Airport food is not generally known for its fine quality or reasonable pricing. But surprise, surprise! 

 Appetizers:  Some interesting tidbits to whet your appetite 

Suzette has given birth

The popular provider of dishes from Brittany on Fourth Street has now appeared also in the Britannia Mall on Elbow Dr. SW. Good luck in this new venture.

Da Guido is gone.

An old favourite Italian eatery on the north hill has closed it’s doors. Thanks for the memories since 1984. 

A New Higher Ground

Long a staple for coffee and wine in Kensington, Higher Ground is now also in Capitol Hill.

A New Name and a Somewhat Different Style

The Kensington Riverside Inn restaurant is now the Oxbow. But look for the same fine, quality food in a more relaxed setting.

 Main Courses:  Restaurants recently updated

 Crave     Myhre’s Deli     Avenue Deli     Phil & Sebastians Coffee Company     Swiss Chalet Rotosserie & Grill   


When the meal is finished, you may wonder exactly how restaurants are scored and other trivia surrounding this site.  For more information click here.


If your meal company is boring, here are some of our favourite websites you may want to explore while pretending to look for the weather forecast on your phone:

Grant is completely bland and can be largely ignored, but he searches out spots like Knox United Church, Calgary and  Macworld. Though usually he uses the internet for World of Warcraft. His realm is Lightninghoof if you ever visit Azeroth.

Dorothy holds the artistic portfolio and tends toward sites such as Artbeads and Fire Mountain Gems and Beads.

Right now we are both watching for changes in medical care in Alberta through Friends of Medicare and other global events through The Economist.

If the evening is really a disaster, go off the the washroom and look up some House of Dawson Media Links.
