Profile Last Updated: March 12, 2008
On the corner of 17th Ave and 1st Street SW sits an historic red brick house that is home to a wine and oyster bar known as The Embarcadero. This restaurant features a European décor on the main floor wine bar, The Pearl Bay dining room, where the sun shines, and a second floor Gallery where you will be surrounded by Asian artwork. During the warmer months of the Calgary climate, patrons can take advantage of the south-facing patio, a great place to sit and enjoy some of their fine wines.
The Embarcadero Wine & Oyster Bar is known for two things, and their name says it all. Customers can choose from a number of oyster dishes including the likes of Oysters Florentine, oysters sautéed with spinach and topped with a white wine sauce. There are also Oysters Rockefeller, oysters sautéed with watercress and onion in a Pernod herb sauce. Wash them down with something from the large selection of wine. They have a huge list that includes everything from full-bodied reds to champagne and sake.
More than Just Oysters
Of course, not everyone is an oyster lover, and they understand that here. There are plenty of other selections on the menu for both seafood and game lovers. Plenty of salads, pastas, steaks, sandwiches, wraps, and pizza all make an appearance on the lunch and dinner menus.
