Calgary’s first Vegetarian Chef’s Tasting Menu – available all the time!

While we have always accommodated vegetarians at Muse, we have a separate vegetarian Chef’s tasting menu available all the time – choice of 5 courses or 8 courses. Launched on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, Chef has created one-of-a-kind dishes that highlight his artistic plating, and showcase some of the best local produce that Calgary has to offer. The Chef’s Tasting Menu courses are meant to be a surprise – sit back and let the Chef cook for you! It truly is a great dining experience. Unfortunately at this time, we cannot accommodate vegans for our Chef’s Tasting Menu. Thank you for your understanding.
