It’s great to finally see the weather perk up for May – make sure you take advantage of it in between all of the playoff action (myself included)! On to this week’s food notes:

- Vaticano Cucina will be opening this week, located at 10310 45 Avenue (formerly Koutouki’s).
- Lincoln reports that Urban Shabu will be closing at the end of May.
- Cindy reviewed Bundok on 104 Street.
- Linda enjoyed the food (and memories) at Calle Mexico’s brick and mortar location.
- Also from Linda – why shouldn’t the worlds of food and hockey collide? She compiled a list of restaurants in the city banking on an enlarged appetite for duck.
- Liane highlights two additional bakeries that have opened in the city over the past few months – The Art of Cake and Chocorrant.

- In case you missed it – here’s a recap of this year’s Eat Alberta conference.
- Will Tim Horton’s be able to make headway into the UK market? The first cafe will open in Glasgow in May.
- Mack and I joined Thom and Alicia at Brewster’s to watch the Oilers game last night. I ordered the butternut squash ravioli – it was on the heavy side, and the pasta could have benefited from more simmer time, so I probably should have stuck with the more traditional side of the pub menu.
