8 places to eat on Calgary's +15

Jun 29 2017, 1:59 am

Built 15 feet above the street and made up of over 60 bridges, the +15 is an interconnected indoor walkway Calgarians walk everyday to get to work and to escape (dare I jinx it) bad weather. Along this walkway spanning across 18km, you can get enough steps in to get your appetite going.

Here are eight places to eat at on the +15.

1. E.A.T-Eight Avenue Trattoria

Located in the Eighth Avenue Place building, this bustling spot is great for a quick lunch, a drink, dessert, and it has irresistible take-away options like homemade pastries, fresh salads, pasta, and even Fiasco Gelato. Every day different hot plates and meats at their carving station are featured along with a daily risotto and an international cuisine special.

Address: Eighth Avenue Place, 210- 525 8 Avenue SW

2. Dirtbelly

Go and get yo’ greens at this artisanal salad bar that will keep you on track during the work week. Choose from nine varieties of salad, four different grain bowls, or have a baco (half-bread, half-taco) filled with signature greens and ahi tuna, chicken, or a veggie patty.

Address: TD Square, 317 7 Avenue SW

3. Sunterra Market

With three different locations along the +15 walkway, Sunterra offers fresh Italian lunch fare and a marketplace full of goods that might make you have an ‘extended’ lunch-no one will tell your boss though, we promise.

Address: Three locations along the +15; check website for details.

4. Butcher And The Baker

With ciabatta bread stuffed with either sous-vide Alberta sirloin, house-cured pork belly, 12 hour slow-cooked jerk chicken, or albacore tuna, you’ll be thinking there’s no way you’ll ever going to be settling for a sub selling place.

Address: Bow Valley Square, 181- 250 6 Avenue SW

5. Verona Pizza

Offering pizza by-the-slice (as well as whole pizzas and gluten-free crusts too), plates of pasta, and salads, this carb-infused lunch will likely lead to an afternoon nap.
