Meet the owner

There are few restaurants in Calgary with a legacy like La Chaumière. Calgary’s premiere French restaurant, La Chaumiere has been known for its exquisite dishes, superb wines and attentive service since its doors first opened in 1978. In fact, the owner, Joseph De Angelis, has had the pleasure of watching customers grow up in his restaurant. “We have second and third generation guests coming here all the time,” he says. “They came here as children and now come with kids of their own.”

Joseph describes La Chaumière’s menu as “old world French cuisine with a decidedly Canadian influence” and strives to combine French cooking techniques with locally sourced ingredients. “Our food is cooked in the French style using the classic sauces, but we use meat and fish that’s as local as possible,” says Joseph. “We believe it’s important to support local businesses and their hard work.” One dish that perfectly encapsulates La Chaumière’s approach to food is their entrecôte de bison, a premium cut of Alberta-raised bison with a chestnut tartelette and cranberry jus.

On top of Calgary’s fine dining scene, Le Chaumiere serves up all of the indulgence that one expects from a truly classic French restaurant. It’s all delightfully old school – you’ve got veal served with foie gras, escargots with brie, pâté with gherkins and veal sweetbreads, among other classically prepared dishes.

Restaurant wine lists in Calgary: The big guns

This French fine-dining spot on 17th Avenue Southwest has been collecting for almost four decades. They were the first restaurant in Calgary to have first growths from Bordeaux on the wine list. The restaurant has a policy of purchasing multiple cases of the best wines, so its cellar is stellar. Amazingly, you can order these gorgeous wines at prices that reflect the year they were purchased all the way back to the 1960s.

Savour a sunny outdoor patio brunch in Calgary

The lunch menu at the fabulously French La Chaumière is served from 11:45 am to 2:30 pm and on it you’ll find a gorgeous array of brunch-appropriate dishes. Relax on its side-yard patio and open with hors d’oeuvres such as smoked salmon or seafood croquettes. Soups include lovely lobster bisque, and the salad selection begins with Hotchkiss organic tomatoes with basil and olive oil. For your entree, it’s got to be a soft omelet with truffles.
