FAB Food & Wine: Where To Dine Awards

Hats off to another world class dining extravaganza! Calgary is showing the global foodie scene what we have to offer and Where Magazine is recognizing restaurants efforts with the Where To Dine awards.
Well, what I can say other than it’s an  honor to work with these FAB restaurants on a daily basis,  Thomsons Restaurant, Sandstone Lounge and Catch & the Oyster Bar each received Where Magazine’s 2011 Where To Dine awards. Catch took Calgary’s best in Seafood Dining, while Thomsons and Sandstone were named the best Hotel Dining and Lounge. Yet another milestone for these 2 trendy venues. The reception lunch was full of great bites stemming from 24 local restaurants, representing all areas of the city. Kudos to all who recieved awards for the FAB dishes they serve each and every day. Watch for the full list of awards in Where Magazines January/February edition.
There is no better way to enjoy a Tuesday afternoon than listening to a toast by Jane Ferrari, a well known Winemaker from down under. Jane’s expertise stems from educational experiences, to tastings abroad from London to New York. The amount of information you can absorb about the Yalumba Winery in Barossa will amaze you. Cheers Jane, and we look forward to welcoming you back to another celebration of  Where To Dine.
Oh yes,  last but not least the Birks Silver Spoon Award. This prestigious award is presented to a chosen restaurant on behalf of the Les Clefs d’Or Organization. The group of Alberta’s elite Concierge come together and agree on a restaurant who is constantly exceeding expectations and wowing hotel guests. This year we’re pleased to announce our choice – Murrieta’s. They have earned this honorary award not only through flawless dishes, but also their world class service. Thank you for continuously delighting our guests and giving them a Calgary dining experience that they’re sure to remember.
