When I’m out in the mountains I’ve always enjoyed staying and dining at the local CRMR lodges and restaurants. That’s a similar case for Calgary, where I’ve always had great meals at Cilantro and Divino. I was pretty excited to hear that they were opening a sister restaurant with more of a lounge concept in mind. Calgary always needs more lounges since people seem to only have choices of either restaurants or bars. So I was looking forward to checking out the new Bar C lounge down on 17th Ave.
Atmosphere: An open and modern lounge/dining area with contemporary furnishings and a laidback casual ambiance.
Next up was the Buffalo Tartar, which had bits of capers interspersed throughout with chunks of pickles, served with toasted baguettes slices on the side. This is the tartar for all the pickle lovers out there. Tart and tangy, you can’t miss the brine from the pickles with the added punch of the mustard.
I liked having all the wine choices laid out so you can pick and choose from each. Unique in that you can choose a certain amount of ounces beyond the regular 2oz, 5oz or 9oz glasses. It really lets you mix and match the different choices or go full throttle with any particular wines you really enjoyed.
