Clearly Alberta has stepped up its new restaurant game, because the province has 7 restaurants in the running for Air Canada’s Best New Restaurants list in 2017.
Last year Wild Rose Country only had 2 eateries make the long list, so this means the foodie scene is evidently getting better and better.
This year, the 7 new Alberta restaurants on the list of nominees are:
- Alder Room, Edmonton
- Bar Von Der Fels, Calgary
- Café Linnea, Edmonton
- Chartier, Edmonton
- Clementine, Edmonton
- Deane House, Calgary
- Hayloft, Airdrie
The long list for 2017 includes 30 notable Canadian restaurants which opened in the last 12 months. Nominations are based on recommendations from a panel of food experts and will be ranked by one anonymous writer tasked with a month-long marathon of eating.
The top 10 new restaurants will be unveiled at a gala event in Toronto and online in late October.
