Downtown Edmonton’s Got Big Taste

Recipe for Great Downtown Dining

Just ahead of Downtown Dining week, we thought we’d get in the culinary mood and write a recipe for Downtown dining. These are just a few ingredients, so we want to know from YOU what the “secret ingredient” is that sets Downtown dining apart?

Add seasoning to taste!

As Downtown grows, so do the dining options. The culinary choices Downtown are as diverse as Edmonton is – you can enjoy a tasty steak or try cuisines from around the world. Celebrate culinary creativity at Downtown Dining Week, from March 11-20. For ten days Edmonton’s finest restaurants are offering delicious, multi-course meals at special prices:$15 for lunch; $28 and $48 for dinner.

Add a dash of fame

Downtown dining is making a name for itself, and not just for Edmontonians. Recently, three Downtown restaurants (corso 32, Bar Bricco and Rostizado) have made the Canada’s 100 Best Restaurant List. Plus, we couldn’t help but notice that 22 of Avenue Magazine’s best restaurants are in the Downtown area. Even our friends in Calgary have taken notice of the awesome coffee culture in Edmonton, and in particular Downtown.

Let the flavours develop

NorQuest College is gearing up in a big way to train hospitality workers who will be critical to supporting all the great new things happening in Downtown. Their Service Industry Skills program at NorQuest’s Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation Hospitality Institute is for people who would like to be in positions like Server/Host/Suite Attendant, Concession Worker, Guest Services Relations Host, Ticket Takers/Ushers, and Building Service Workers. Their recruitment campaign is about to hit the streets, and they’re ready to train hundreds for great new opportunities.
