Welcome to the second Best Restaurants Event since relaunching the magazine from Avenue to Edify. Edify prides itself as being a major supporter of the food scene in Edmonton, and our annual event is a celebration of that relationship. As you tour the restaurants at the event, we encourage you to engage with the culinary artisans behind each table; the chefs are on hand for conversations about the items they prepared especially for this evening’s affair.

Be prepared for an lively evening of “gastronomie en miniature” — a culinary experience where small portions showcase exquisite flavours.
