Tidbits: Notes on Edmonton's Epicurean Scene

  • See Magazine reviewed the recently opened Mor, a new Mediterreanean Turkish restaurant (15620 95 Street, 758-4545).
  • Where Edmonton reports that Acqua Marina Italian Restaurant (13578 Fort Road, 457-8855) is receiving critical acclaim.
  • As noted in City Palate, Mangiamos (10124 124 Street) will be transforming into Vintage Lounge, which will offer "a distinctive wine list in a sleek and sexy atmosphere." I hope this change means at least more consistent operating hours.
  • The Edmonton Journal reviewed Way of Life Mode de Vie (10203 116 Street) in their Style section on Saturday, a vegan restaurant that opened at the end of last year.
  • Sorrentino's launches their 17th annual month-long Garlic Festival on April 1.
  • While not independent, these restaurant groups are prospering in chain-happy Edmonton: a new Swiss Chalet (4004 17 Street) is just about ready in the 17th Street complex; expect a new Hudsons in West Edmonton Mall in May; and a new Moxie's is being built in South Edmonton Common.

I think you mean 17th street complex, not avenue :)
