NOtaBLE has you covered from brunch to lunch to Gourmet 2 Go

Enjoying the new fall menus at NOtaBLE Calgary.

I love going to restaurants that like to shake things up every now and again. While there is comfort in picking the same foods you already know and enjoy, I appreciate trying new flavours, dishes and seasonal ingredients when I’m eating out.
