One of the great things about our neighbourhood is that we're within walking distance of lots of amazing restaurants and shops.
Our favourite is Vero Bistro. Actually, Vero would probably be one of our favourite restaurants in Calgary. The servers are always attentive and friendly. The ambiance is cozy and romantic. And the food is freaking fantastic. The cuisine is French/Italian inspired, but there are also Asian and Spanish influences.
Their brunch menu is amazing. I highly recommend the Berkshire pork ragu poutine, the sweet potato gnocchi with gorgonzola, and just about everything else. My husband would probably recommend the Iberian ham... he insists on starting every meal at Vero with a plate of finely sliced Jamon Iberico, preferably with a glass of prosecco to wash it down.
We often head over there for dinner; the menu changes fairly frequently but there's usually a delicious fish or seafood option, and they have great options for wine pairings. Also, during the week, they have some interesting specials. Tuesday is usually a "no menu" day, where you eat whatever tasty creation the chef prepares. And Wednesday is steak and frites day; you get three courses including a yummy salad, steak and dessert. Last week, they also had a lovely salmon option.

Here's what I wore, with the photo taken in front of the hardware store. I had trouble finding similar items to link to, but I'm able to say that Deletta regularly comes out with similar tank tops.
