Before opening the space, the owners and collaborators of Model Milk sought to create a menu and a restaurant that would combine both innovation and comfort. They support local farmers by sourcing ingredients produced around the region, and seek to use every last inch of whatever produce and meat they can get their hands on. What has resulted is a restaurant and bar that feels both homey and elegant. Modern Milk is located within in an old creamery, so diners are seated at wood tables nestled against authentic brick walls that give the space mix of contemporary and rustic appeal. The menu focuses on simple, elegantly crafted dishes, while the beverage list is an artisanal cocktail-lover's dream. The restaurant also hosts a communal dinner every Sunday, during which guests share a family-style meal that includes a first and second course, as well as dessert.
The Living Room Restaurant, located along Calgary's trendy 17th Avenue Southwest area, opened for business in 2000. It is credited with coining the term, "contemporary interactive cuisine", a twist on classic French and Italian specialties with a Canadian touch. The diner offers a distinct range of meats and seafood entrees, with tapas and fondues for sharing. Its open patio and expansive wine list, that can be had by the bottle or glass, make it one of the Calgary's premier restaurants. It also has the distinction of receiving the numerous honors and awards.
