Take a walk.
Sorry you took it that way, that wasn't what I meant at all. I was responding to your comment that you regret not having shared Els on this forum until they closed. Also observing that whenever a restaurant closes another one seems to open in its place relatively quickly.

Is this list as random as their list of top neighbourhoods?


Edit just looked at the list and happy to see Bonterra is still quality.

I know, not a buffet to be seen. Also, I'm surprised that there is a list of best African restaurants. Do we have that many? Aren't they all on the list?

Yeesh. Some of those categories are... controversial

The Pizza category is basically a write-off. Outside of Noble Pie, the rest are meh to awful.

OEB is meh.

How is Una Pizza in the top 13 Restaurants??? it's not even a top 13 pizza joint in this city.

Chairman's Steakhouse is so overrated.

A bunch of the categories are just last years winners. You can see from the date at the top that a few of the categories are dated in February 2020. I noticed when I was reading the Indian food category and the write-up for Calcutta Cricket Club sounded really familiar.

I mean it more as a jumping off point to perhaps liven up the board a bit. But, you know, i guess internet forums aren't supposed to be used that way...

I don't think my UNA take is out of line with the general consensus - particularly on this forum.

My post wasn't aimed at you, or anyone in particular. I just wish we wouldn't give Avenue the attention these lists always seem to get.

I agree about UNA. I have friends who love it but it's not anywhere near the top of my list.

Fair Enough!

I would agree Avenue Calgary is not what it once was. Avenue Edmonton is actually still pretty decent and has a lot more actual content than sponsored posts.

And regarding Chairmans, I just wasnt jazzed for the price. It has an overly American steakhouse feel to it. I know many like it though.
