New in Calgary - can you help with "must dine at" restaurants?

WOW!!! Thanks for all the suggestions!

I think we're covered for awhile!

New in Calgary - can you help with "must dine at" restaurants?

We moved to Acadia, and happen to be right around the corner to The Better Butcher.

This has me excited, as a bunch of people on this board seem to be impressed with them.

My reference to neighborhood, though; was exactly what you're suggesting - I meant that I'd prefer to hit unknown areas in search of perfect pho or curry (and the best shwarma)

We're just finishing up our move into Calgary from Northern Alberta (we're misplaced BC folks), and I hopped online to find the best butchers / farmer's markets / etc in town...

This site hit for both queries off the bat, but I've since lost the last half an hour reading about pate and L'epiceri due to your recommendations.

Judging by the various comments on this board, I think that I might be able to save myself some work and ask all of you:

Where should we be eating out?

I can afford the occasional high end night out (we loved the food and wine at Hardware in Edmonton), but I'm also interested in hidden gems that offer interesting and delicious food...

Neither of us have ever lived here or visited here; I have a vehicle (so we're not worried about getting to and from tucked away locations), and since we don't know any better, we don't have any perceptions on where a "nice" restaurant should be situated.

Would any of you be wiling to post suggestions of where we should be going?

I truly would appreciate it, and would be more than willing to offer feedback from experience.
