Calgary lands 16 restaurants on list of top 100 in Canada

Calgary’s restaurant scene is the second hottest in the country, at least according to one new ranking.

Online restaurant reservation service OpenTable released its annual ranking of the 100 best restaurants in the country Wednesday.

Calgary had the second most restaurants on the list with 16, falling behind Toronto with 47 and before Vancouver, which had 12.

And the ranking might cause the Calgary/Edmonton rivalry to heat up — Alberta’s capital landed just four restaurants on the list.

The list was compiled from more than 500,000 reviews of over 2,500 restaurants across the country between Nov. 1, 2017, and Oct. 31, 2018, and restaurants were sorted by score calculated by each establishment’s overall rating.

Alberta also came in as the second-best province, with 21 restaurants to Ontario’s 57.

The following Calgary restaurants made the cut, in alphabetical order: 

Anju

Bridgette Bar

Cucina Market Bistro

Escoba Bistro and Wine Bar

Hy’s Steakhouse

Klein/Harris

La Chaumiere

The Nash

Pigeonhole

Sherwood Park

Sherwood Park is a large hamlet in Alberta, Canada within Strathcona County that is recognized as an urban service area.[7] It is located adjacent to the City of Edmonton’s eastern boundary,[8] generally south of Highway 16 (Yellowhead Trail), west of Highway 21 and north of Highway 630 (Wye Road).[9] Other portions of Sherwood Park extend beyond Yellowhead Trail and Wye Road, while Anthony Henday Drive (Highway 216) separates Refinery Row to the west from the balance of the hamlet to the east.[9]

Sherwood Park was established in 1955 on farmland of the Smeltzer family, east of Edmonton. With a population of 70,618 in 2016,[6] Sherwood Park has enough people to be Alberta’s seventh largest city, but technically retains the status of a hamlet. The Government of Alberta recognizes the Sherwood Park Urban Service Area as equivalent to a city.

History

Sherwood Park, originally named Campbelltown, was founded by John Hook Campbell and John Mitchell in 1953 when the Municipal District of Strathcona No. 83 approved their proposed development of a bedroom community east of Edmonton. The first homes within the community were marketed to the public in 1955. Canada Post intervened on the name of Campbelltown due to the existence of several other communities in Canada within the same name, so the community’s name was changed to Sherwood Park in 1956.
Geography

The Sherwood Park Urban Service Area is located in the Edmonton Capital Region along the western edge of central Strathcona County adjacent to the City of Edmonton.[8] The majority of the community is bound by Highway 16 (Yellowhead Highway) to the north, Highway 21 to the east, Highway 630 (Wye Road) to the south, and Anthony Henday Drive (Highway 216) to the west. The Refinery Row portion of Sherwood Park is located across Anthony Henday Drive to the west, between Sherwood Park Freeway and Highway 16. Numerous developments fronting the south side of Wye Road, including Wye Gardens, Wye Crossing, Salisbury Village and the Estates of Sherwood Park, are also within the community. Lands north of Highway 16 and south of Township Road 534/Oldman Creek between Range Road 232 (Sherwood Drive) to the west and Highway 21 to the east are also within the Sherwood Park urban service area.
