    WATCH: Edmonton's Downtown Dining Week Begins

    Nice skirt around the "what do you recommend" question!
    “You have to dream big. If we want to be a little city, we dream small. If we want to be a big city, we dream big, and this is a big idea.” - Mayor Stephen Mandel, 02/22/2012

    Downtown Dining Week to showcase Downtown’s Diverse Dining Scene
    JOANNE MCGOWAN, POSTMEDIA

    Calling all foodies! It’s the most delicious time of the year to start booking reservations at your favourite restaurants. Running from March 8 to 17, a record-setting 50 of Downtown Edmonton’s finest restaurants will participate in the 15th annual Downtown Dining Week, offering fix-priced lunch, dinner and, new for 2019, brunch menus.

    The 10-day celebration is the biggest restaurant event of the year and gives local foodies and visitors a chance to experience Downtown’s rich culinary diversity.

    “Downtown Edmonton is home to amazing restaurants that have garnered national and international attention, landing on lists like Air Canada’s Best New Restaurants in Canada, and written up by the UK’s Telegraph newspaper, Vanity Fair magazine and The Guardian newspaper,” says Ian O’Donnell, Executive Director of the Downtown Business Association. “There’s no other Edmonton event that gives diners the opportunity to enjoy great food at such great prices, while finding new and exciting places to explore our transforming Downtown,” he adds.

    it’s not often i can agree with Top_Dawg so i have to take the opportunity when the chance arises...

    i too laughed out loud at the “one of the best fruit bowls i have had in a long time” review - not sure if it was the redundant icing sugar or maybe the fact IanO just hasn’t had a fruit bowl in a long time that prompted it.

    Maybe he meant that the bowl itself was made of fruit. Otherwise, I really don't see anything that would make it stand out.

    Raspberries
    Blackberries
    Grapes
    Mango

    All fresh, crisp, plump and full of flavour.

    ...not your typical melon and melon with a bad strawberry.

    We all know how hard good fruit is to find. Especially grapes and raspberries. I bet they kept those grapes chilled at a special temperature. And let's not forget the bowl!! Without that the dish was nothing!!

    You gotta get out more if that's blowing your hair back.
    You got ripe...basic...fruit...in a bowl...
    I have perfect blackberries, raspberries and grapes in my fridge at home. 2cartons/$5 on the berries at Safeway last weekend!

    But this was a downtown fruit bowl and that makes all the difference.

    More often than not, I find that many places serve poor quality, cheap, poorly presented fruit... and so yes, it was 'just fruit', but it was fresh, delicious and a nice variety.
