Beverly Dining Week Returns for a Second Year

The Beverly Business Improvement Area and Wild Heart Collective are bringing Beverly Dining Week back for a second year.

Running from October 17-25, 2019, the event highlights restaurants in the northeast Edmonton neighbourhood located on 118 Avenue between 30th and 50th streets. This year, Beverly Dining Week will feature 10 restaurants (up from 8 in 2018), including some area stalwarts like Uncle Ed’s Restaurant and Swiss2Go, and relative newcomers such as Chicken For You and Mumbai Dakar Restaurant.

Menus have yet to be released, but check the BIA website for updates.


  • Brasserie Bardot opened in late September in the former Manor Cafe space (10109 125 Street). It’s described as a “chef driven cocktail brasserie paired with a traditional Parisian cafe”, and is operated by the family behind Violino Ristorante and the Mayfield Inn.
  • Congratulations to Meat Street Pies on the opening of their brick and mortar storefront, located at 800 Broadmoor Boulevard in Sherwood Park.
  • I missed the opening of Paramo Cafe last year, a Venezuelan-based coffee chain. It is located at 9940 137 Avenue, #110.


  • Paws the Cat Cafe is closing on October 27, 2019.

What I Ate

  • It was a soup kind of week for me, partly because I was hoping to ward off the colds going around my office. First stop: T and D Noodle House for their Bun Bo Hue. As always, great service, and their kitchen is really efficient.

  • Next up was the prairie pork shio from Prairie Noodle Shop. I particularly enjoyed the smoked pulled pork.

  • While the mac and cheeza remains my ultimate favourite, the Lovesgiving feature at Love Pizza is also a great deviation from more traditional toppings. Here, the mashed potato spread, pulled turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce offer a different version of turkey dinner – it’s available for the month of October.
