We have been waiting impatiently for Calgarys’ spice emporium Silk Road to come to Edmonton— now their new location next to Knifewear at 10818 Whyte Avenue is open! The warm and spicy interior is filled with a veritable Arabian Nights of products.  Love what Knifewear has started, a happening culinary scene on west Whyte. Bring it on!

Expect good things from chef Nathin Bye’s new Ampersand 27, in the Murrietta’s space on Whyte Avenue, soft opening this week “There are 27 bones in the human hand; these are the tools that help to cultivate and cook the food that we eat,” says Nathin. I have always loved different fonts and type and symbols, so the name is an amalgamation of art, font, number.” And let’s not forget delicious food. Chef Bye, the 2012 Gold Medal Plates champ is working with several local farmers and purveyors for the menu. We’re looking forward to this truly culinary addition to the Whyte Avenue scene.
