Ritage Restaurant is one of Calgary’s newest restaurants to open right before the pandemic hit only to shut down like everyone else. As per AHS guidelines, they reopened this summer offering a full menu for lunch and dinner, seven days a week. Owner and Chef Adam Askar hails from Beirut where he studied his craft before working in a handful of hotels around the world, including Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and Dubai. Last year Askar came to Canada, worked at a few local eateries before opening Ritage. His menu features a variety of items including cold mezze, hot mezze, burgers and arayes, kebabs, saj bites, and platters as well as desserts. A dome-shaped grill called a saj is used to cook some of the dishes including bread. Take-out is available.
