I have to be a dissenting opinion on Buffo, although we went for mother's day so I will probably give them another chance.

Bolognese was spicy. Like massively over-seasoned. Bolognese shouldn't be spicy. Wife had the funghi pizza, I thought the bechamel was oddly sweet. Server was in a bit of a hurry to hustle us out, which fine - it's mother's day. But the place was half empty as we walked out. We weren't holding up a table. The wine we had was pretty darn good though.

Is this for realz? Or another "oh no, they're closing, better get a reservation while you can", ala Wellingtons?

Edit - reminder to self to google before posting... It is closing for realz.

That's too bad, but last time I was there it certainly felt like it was time to "hang em' up". Such dated decor, furniture and food, like a bizarre time warp into the early 90's.

The cuisine was good classic french, but I just don't think that resonates with the emerging class of dinners, especially in an economic downturn.

I only went once years ago, but it's always unfortunate when a place which has been around for a long time decides to shut down.

Construction on 17th is hurting a lot of businesses, and some are resulting in crazy promos.

Ceili’s on 17th ave is offering free wings on Friday with a drink purchase from 3pm-7pm

Decent wings and the happy hour beer counts as a purchase

Hit Workshop again the past weekend. I really think it is the best in Calgary and the one place here which really measures up to "big city" restaurants (aside from steak - that's a separate category). A lot of the other places that I like a lot, I find I qualify with "it's great... for Calgary". Workshop is very inventive, great presentation, and the food is delicious. Didn't hurt we had a bottle of Opus with our dinner.

My foodie industry friends go to Workshop when they dine out.

I lived down the street from the Chef when we were kids. He's been through a lot and I'm glad he's successful.
