Calgary Eats 7 by John Gilchrist

Interested in the best food in Calgary, Canmore or Banff? This is the app version of food expert John Gilchrist's book "My Favourite Restaurants: Calgary, Banff and Beyond" (7th edition). It is a hand-picked list of over 225 of the very best restaurants in Calgary and area – the cream of the crop.

**NOTE**: This app contains the entire listing of restaurants from the book, with details like cuisine styles, addresses and phone numbers, but by default, does NOT automatically come with the reviews. They are available as an in-app purchase.

John Gilchrist is Calgary's most influential food writer and best-selling author of 10 restaurant guides. John reviews restaurants for CBC Radio's Calgary Eyeopener and writes about food and restaurants for the Calgary Herald, Avenue magazine, Swerve and Where Calgary.

**NOTE 2**: Since the print book was published in 2009, changes have occurred in the restaurant biz. So we’ve deleted restaurants that have closed since then, plus made an effort to update any changes to location information (e.g., if a restaurant has opened a second location since 2009, we’ve included the new address in the app, too, but the review itself may only refer to the original location.) Some details, such as hours, may also have changed. All this is to say that the content in this app may not be 100% up to date. For this reason, the combined price of this app with all reviews is much less than the cost of the actual dead-tree book in stores.

You can now carry a list of all the best restaurants in your pocket, accessible digitally wherever you are! This is super useful, even if you’ve already bought the book. In the mood for sushi? Or Italian? Or a romantic meal? Pull up a select list of the best restaurants in those, or other, categories. Find the one closest to you. Get directions from a map. Maybe even browse the menu on their website or call for reservations. All from this app!

• About 55% of the restaurant listings contain info about such details as hours, reservations, alcoholic beverages, credit cards and outdoor dining.
• The rest of the listings are called Mini Reviews (MR) and contain less detailed info.
• You can expand the information at your finger tips by purchasing the full reviews, gaining more insight into the Calgary and Banff dining scene.

Get Started:
• Buy the basic app with all the listings.
• Take a look at the free sample reviews to get a taste: “Aida's,” “Fleur de Sel” and “Szechuan Restaurant.” For a sample Mini Review, take a look at “Barpa Bill's.”
• Buy all of the Mini Reviews, which are shorter, for one low price, or …
• Add on all the reviews as an in-app purchase for a fixed price. Then you'll have a digital version of the full book in your pocket!
• Check out the included bonus content like the Best New Restaurants of 2011.
• Track which restaurants you've visited.
• Mark your favourites for easy reference.
• Keep your own notes for each restaurant.

Life is too short to waste your money on mediocre food. With this app, you'll eat well. Always.
