Meet the owner

Chef Michael Noble knew that he only ever wanted to operate two restaurants. He launched Notable in 2010, which quickly became one of the hottest casual-fine-dining tickets in town, with reservation lists for the Montgomery-area eatery often weeks deep. He wasn't actively looking for another venue to open that future second restaurant – the venue sort of came looking for him.

Michael was approached by the Kerr family – owners of Ansonia Property Management, and huge fans of Notable. Passionate about retaining and restoring historic buildings, the Kerrs were redeveloping the old National Hotel in Inglewood, and had a huge main-floor space in the circa-1907 building that would make the perfect blank canvas for a bold and creative restaurateur such as Michael. The chef was sold on the concept. He signed a lease, and then had plenty of time to develop his vision as the work got underway to shore up the integrity of the old building that had seen better days, having sat derelict for at least a decade.

This restaurant had so much potential. Nice atmosphere! Several plates from our table went back to the kitchen. The service was very slow, our waitress was very rude. Manager seemed a bit out of his league. We mentioned to him that we didn’t have the best experience not wanting anything in return and there was no apology all he could say was I wish you would of told me sooner. Poor customer service we will not be back.

Atmosphere: 4/5

After passing the Nash everyday on my commute to work, I finally decided to give them a try with the wife. We were very impressed by the overall atmosphere and the food was excellent. The only downside was that the service was a bit slow. We'll definitely be back.

While the meat course (flat iron steak) was more tender and favourable than expected, the veggies sang and the dessert well... amazing

Well known as a casual-upscale lunch and dinner spot in the former National Hotel building, The Nash also serves weekend brunch that’s more relaxed, but just as delicious. The brunch menu is a mix of brunch and lunch-y items including signature weekend dishes such as duck confit perogies with poached eggs and the Hangover Breakfast Pizza, a take on huevos rancheros served as a flatbread.

Do-good dining: Restaurants for Change in Calgary

Settled in Inglewood’s old National Hotel – a site as old as the community itself – chef Michael Noble’s second restaurant writes a new (and decadent) chapter for the 1900s-era sandstone building, adding some modern urban grit to its interior. Watch the chefs prep your dishes with great care with their open kitchen. Start with their pan-seared B.C. halibut cheeks with prosciutto dressing, beluga lentils and josper oven-roast tomatoes. For a taste and feel-good main, try the wood-fired free-range “Happy” rotessorie chicken with buttermilk mash and black garlic.
