Big Taste 2016 |Lunch & Dinner

Cilantro is looking forward to joining 85 of their fellow Calgary restaurants to celebrate Calgary’s love of dining with the Big Taste Foodie Festival March 4th – 13th. Throughout this ten day festival, Cilantro looks forward to welcoming guests at both lunch and dinner.

The lunch menu is three courses for $25 and the dinner menu is five courses for $65. Reservations are now being accepted online or by calling 403.229.1177.

“Embracing the Southwestern-Californian influences of our menu was important when designing the menu for Big Taste,” says Josh Cocca, Sous-Chef at Cilantro. “We look forward to having guests sample some Southwestern flavours but still showcase a bit of Canadiana – which is what CRMR’s cuisine is all about.”

Along with the Big Taste menus at lunch and dinner, Cilantro’s full a la carte menu will be available throughout the ten days of Big Taste.

Reservations: Monday to Friday (lunch), Monday to Saturday (dinner).
