Vino Alias

August 14, 2009

When it comes to noshing, the ever-changing Renfrew/Bridgeland
neighbourhood was always on our radar, but the northeast neighbourhood
just got a shot of chic with a newly opened wine bar.

Brought to us by the owners of Muse
and Winebar
, AKA Wine Bar (as in also known as) is a quaint space
(just 35 seats) housed in a century-old building along Edmonton Trail
(look up to see the lovely vintage ceiling).

From the well-priced wine list we opted for a glass of the 2007 Garnacha
de Fuego from Spain ($8). The intriguing food menu includes a grilled
ceasar salad with fried anchovy ($9) to start and a main dish of Alberta
lamb, farmer’s sausage, skirt steak and fried egg ($22). But its the
weekend brunch that brings out the masses with organic quinoa waffles
($11) and the green egg sandwich ($9).

Double agents are welcome.

AKA Wine Bar, 709 Edmonton Trail NE, Calgary, 403-984-7534.
