Rush’s luxe dining room is Calgary’s most gorgeous place to lunch with precise food and impeccable service to match.


Slow roasted beets ($13) flirt with slivers of manchego cheese, flounce off wedges of tart grapefruit and rub against pine nuts in a bed of fresh greens.


The Spring Creek beef burger ($15) is cooked to order, stacked high with double smoked bacon and white cheddar, lettuce and tomato. Fries are decent but it’s hard to compete with the juicy burger.


A nod to new executive chef Andrew Stevens’ last position in the Maritimes, the lobster bisque and knuckle sandwich ($22) make me daydream about the humid breezes of those shores.


Rush’s riff on a traditional lobster roll omits the mayonnaise to show off the delicate meat.


The molten carrot cake ($10) is incredible. The warm filling flows as it hits your fork, with a divine homemade white chocolate ginger ice cream on a bed of caramel crumbs.
