Rouge garden

Alberta’s first San Pellegrino, World’s Best Restaurants award recipient, consistently recognized among Canada’s best restaurants, was the first in Calgary to focus on garden to table.

Paul and his business partner Olivier Reynaud have created an inner-city oasis, in Rouge’s one-acre garden where they grow fresh, quality ingredients. Rouge is celebrated for the every-changing, Chef’s tasting menu, wine selection and dining service.

The historical building, one of Calgary’s oldest homes, is located along the Bow River. The garden patio and multiple dining rooms, along with the regionally inspired, locally sourced, menu provide extraordinary dining and event experiences.

When not traveling or hosting events, you can find Paul at Rouge, supporting his team, talking with diners or out in the garden, harvesting the vegetables, fruits and herbs.
