To entertain a visitor from Calgary who, like a true Albertan, enjoys a great steak, I chose the Hamilton Street Grill for dinner. It's a ten minute walk from my downtown apartment but on searching my reviews, it has been quite a while since I dined there.

Ironically, although a great steak dinner was in our plans, the gorgonzola fondue and mushroom tart on the starter menu caught our attention and almost simultaneously we both said "let's sample the appetizer menu rather than just having steak."

Among our family dine-outs over the holidays, a dinner at Black+ Blue Restaurant was an unexpected stand-out.

Our table on the patio overlooking the harbour was shaded and pleasant, despite...
