What goes better with creative brainstorming than food? It’s like they were made for each other! So it’s no surprise that my meeting earlier this week took me to a new (at least to me) restaurant in the south of Calgary!
If you haven’t been to Double Zero in Chinook Centre, you should really check it out. The decor is fresh and modern, boasting of two levels with floor to ceiling windows. Larger-than-life photos of local folks grace the walls around the restaurant. The staff is super friendly and attentive, and the Italian inspired food… well, let’s just say I left pretty happy. Side Note: they have a good looking “Happy Hour” menu that’s available from 3pm – 5pm, Monday to Friday; a perfect way to unwind after work or wrap up a bit of shopping.
Butter Leaf Lettuce Salad – tasty, tart, refreshing.
Polynesian Princess Pizza – Nice flair on your traditional ham and pineapple pizza. The dough was nice and light, but had a decent size crust. I particularly liked the little bit of spice that the chili flakes added.
Chocolate Torta – Yum. Yup, that’s all I got. I was too busy enjoying it to really make any mental notes 🙂
Oh, and they had really good coffee! They only serve milk, no cream, but you hardly needed anything extra.
Would I go back? For sure! It definitely felt like a fancier restaurant than I expected to find in a mall, but a great new addition to Chinook Centre! And they have more than just pizza. There’s pasta, paninis, items from the grill… I’d be surprised if you couldn’t find something you liked. If South Calgary is too far for you, you can also find them down town in the Core Shopping Centre on 8th Ave and 4th Street.
Till Next Time,
