This downtown stand-by (known for its killer wine list) sits in a gorgeous historical building and gives diners a great view of bustling foot traffic on Stephen Avenue Walk. If you’re in the mood for mussels, try the lip-smacking cioppino, a tomato-based fish stew packed with mussels, scallops, whatever fish is in season, prawns and some angel hair pasta.
Situated in what was once the Alberta Hotel building, this stately sandstone property once featured the longest bar in Western Canada, and has been renovated numerous times to accommodate local businesses since prohibition closed the hotel in 1916. Murrieta’s is loaded with heritage personality, with its sandstone-and-brick walls, vaulted ceilings and tiled staircase. The menu features West Coast-inspired cuisine and a fabulous wine list.
A Stephen Avenue Walk landmark, Murrieta’s is located in the handsome, redbrick Alberta Hotel Building. Serving West Coast grub in the heart of downtown Calgary, its dessert menu is a beaut. It’s their flourless chocolate brownie that makes this list, complemented with butterscotch and peanut brittle.
