Selkirk Grille – Calgary Restaurant Review

Hey friends,

So a few weeks before Christmas we made a road trip to Calgary for the weekend to surprise our friend Mike for his birthday. To surprise him we met him and his wife, Amber, and another couple friends of theirs, Doug and Star, for dinner at The Selkirk Grille.

This restaurant is located in Heritage Park before the gates in Heritage Town Square. We arrived after most of the little shops had closed but it looked really cute with ye’ olde style lights along the path and vintage little shop windows. I’ll have to make a point to go back and check this out sometime.
Anyways we made our way into the restaurant and were seated. The restaurant vibe is kind of classy modern vintage, with wooden beams and local art on the walls.
The menu though not extensive has something for everyone.
Our table ordered the charcuterie board to start. It was loaded with lots of different meats and cheeses from all over Canada. It was well worth the $20

I ordered the Spiced Winter Squash Potage soup as a starter ($8). I was really good, well seasoned and nice and thick.

My main was the Northern Divine Canadian Sturgeon which consisted of maple dashi broth, kimchee cabbage, wild mushrooms and scallions for $32. It was quite spicy. The dish was a little light. I was glad that I had the soup to start. Not the best thing that was ordered that night but that was a matter of personal taste and not that the dish wasn’t tasty.

Ward ordered the Pistachio Crusted Spraggs Farm Pork Tenderloin with bacon fat whipped potato, roasted root vegetables, and a mustard jus for $29. I had a taste of the pork and it was very moist. Ward said that the dish was very tasty and was a fair portion.

All in all it was a good meal with even better company. It would be neat to go and check the park out in the summer and see how the menu changes with the season.

Thanks and until next time, enjoy your adventures!
