Contemporary Canadian | Downtown, Calgary

The gluten free desert alone makes the visit worthwhile! We both ordered the Lunch express, it is such a good deal. Soup was Roasted Tomato and Chickpea; tasty and comforting on a near fall day. Main was Cod in Green Curry with Kohlrabi and Garlic Chips; just the right size for lunch, the curry was as I like it, a righteous blend of creamy and spicy that soothes and makes you pay attention. Compliments to our server who knew to bring out a soup spoon; this dish would not be properly enjoyed if eaten with a fork. Dessert for gluten gobblers was a cookie I have do doubt was delicious...however we gluten avoidant were served a perfectly proportioned Chocolate Caramel Mousse Barre topped with Sea Foam Crunchy Toffee... oh la la! so mouth-wateringly good! This was my second lunch-time visit to Donna Mac and I wonder why I let so much time go by between visits. Will not allow that to happen again. More

Contemporary Canadian | Downtown, Calgary

Best in class - food and service! It is no secret that we love Charcut as we are regulars to their restaurant especially when it comes to their lunch service. However, tonight was special as it was our anniversary and we don’t want to “try” some place new to celebrate our day. We want to go to somewhere that is tried, tested, and true - one that is a SOLID 10 - and tonight was another testament to that! We were greeted by a young smiling lady who had us seated in a place that had a little card waiting for us! (WOW!) You know, when people truly read the notes on Open Table and pay attention to that - it scores HIGH in our books! We had a feast! We ordered a Caesar Salad to start. Hubby was wondering (why was there an egg on it?) I pointed out that if he looked close enough - there wasn’t any mayonnaise - which is typical of any Caspar dressing. Instead, they put the natural /whole ingredient - the egg that would add the richness (creaminess, if you will) and that’s what that egg was for. Then we had the order of the broccoli with labneh (OMG, it is absolutely tasty)! I know, it’s broccoli but the charred green drizzled with that labneh was amazing! Hubby was raving too! We ordered a prime rib - and oh so good!!! The other starch was the poutine. And you all know how seriously great theirs is! Finally, our dessert. It was a caramel flan. Smooth and silky and gluten free! Thank you to EVERYONE who made our night special! We had a great time - as always! More
