NEW: BRIDGETTE BAR

Where Calgary - - DINING - —G.R.

From week­end brunch through to late-night drinks, this restau­rant­bar beck­ons at al­most any hour of the day. The lower bar is a cozy sec­tion of couches and chairs cen­tered by a fire­place, while the main restau­rant area is sep­a­rated into smaller sec­tions. Macramé wall hang­ings, saucy pho­tos of film stars, and styl­ized art­work give it all a sense of be­ing caught in a time cap­sule, but the food and cock­tails are mod­ern and creative. Ex­ec­u­tive chef JP Ped­hir­ney has bor­rowed from all cuisines in cre­at­ing a menu that fo­cuses on share­able dishes in­clud­ing a Szechuan-dressed dou­ble-cut pork chop with ap­ple and cilantro, an earthy carpac­cio with mush­room salad, and a beet salad with a deep pur­ple black­berry vi­nai­grette (page 46).
