Calgary's summers are so short, we take advantage of every mintue of sunshine to entertain, dine, or just spend time outside.
One of the better food bloggers in Alberta wrote a great post about BONTERRA, a place that I remember as Virgina's from way back. The pictures of the food were very enticing and the comment about the patio made me want to go there for lunch. Add Bruno, my Italian pal and you had a great combination for lunch.
As it was lunch rush, I did not ask for any gluten free options, but if you want to read about the food, click here:
I want to tell you about the patio. Hidden behind an ochre colored wall is the most beautiful setup for dining I have seen in Calgary. Lots of flowers in pots and hanging baskets, two strategic located fireplaces for cooler nights and a second level a few steps up. needless to say it was packed. Yes, the food was excellent, but the patio was the primary experience.
