Where Calgary - - DINING - —Rachael Frey

A menu based en­tirely around balls might seem like a risky—or per­haps risqué—move, but at Pro­hi­bi­tion Free­house balls are all you need. They come in clas­sic, chicken and ap­ple, pork, or veg­gie va­ri­eties, and you can choose a “bed­ding” of spaghetti, por­to­bello, mashed pota­toes, or po­lenta. Al­ter­na­tively, opt to en­joy your balls “naked” (just topped with sauce) or “be­tween the sheets” (snug­gled co­zily in a baguette). Tongue-incheek menu aside, Pro­hi­bi­tion’s balls are a must-try. Ev­ery sin­gle one is hand-rolled right there in the kitchen, and the abil­ity to mix and match balls, sauces and starches makes for end­less de­li­cious com­bi­na­tions— we rec­om­mend the chicken and ap­ple with pesto and the veg­gie balls with gor­gonzola cream sauce. Eat out­side on the sunny rooftop pa­tio or cozy up to the bar in­side, which is de­signed with lots of cool and quirky touches to hear­ken back to the pro­hi­bi­tion era. Speak­ing of that, you won’t need to dodge the cop­pers to get a drink as the booze is flow­ing freely, from lo­cal craft beers to cre­ative grappa and cock­tails (page 50).
