being at home means participating in all things local. i love connecting with the community, be it fashion, food or lifestyle, and seeing what everyone is up to. calgary has become an amazingly vibrant place, anyone that lives here will tell you that the food scene is booming and along with it everything else. the creative community is bursting with talent and it’s amazing to be in the middle of it all. whenever we get asked if we would move to a bigger centre, the answer is always followed with an explanation of why calgary is totally where it’s at.
the most recent reason for all this yyc loving is pigeonhole. the restaurant barely opened its doors and it already made canada’s best new restaurants as determined by air canada enroute magazine. i’m no food critic but all you have to do is look around the place. i mean… it’s gorgeous! not to mention that i actually have tasted the menu (for those following along on snapchat you already had a sneak peek), and the very thought of their tuna crudo in whipped yogurt, puffed rice, sour cucumber and lemon verbena is making my mouth water. another favourite? the charred cabbage, with jalapeños, salad cream and mimolette cheese, something so simple and it has me wondering why i don’t have cabbage for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. this is owner’s justin leboe’s THIRD time on the highly coveted list and this time it’s the very top!
