Le Petit Coup Opening Week

Seatings: Limited
Cost: Varies
Location: Chefs Bar at the Coup, 924 17 Ave SW

Gotta love a new restaurant opening – even better when it’s a concept resto opening inside of one of the most popular spots in #yyc! @thecoupcalgary is the most happenin’ place in town now that @petitcoupcalgary has started. Since the launch earlier this week, Petit Coup is a separate arm of the ever-popular restaurant, happening inside the current one.  @petitcoupcalgary will operate on a reservation-only basis, and will have a set tasting menu & beverage pairing each night. It is your chance to indulge in local, seasonal vegetables, and create an experience for you to not only savour the ingredients on your plate, but to also experience a side of the brand you have yet to enjoy. The menu is curated by the new chef, @adameatworld, Adam Ryan and you don’t want to miss!
