RGE RD is Canadian Cuisine. Our tastes and dishes are inspired by our country’s fields and forests, our mountains and oceans. Explore the tastes that Western Canada has to offer.
We source ingredients and provisions from farms and small-scale producers across Western Canada. Our menu is dictated by the season, and we aim to use every part of every ingredient.
Shared meals & private dining
The Butchery (our space next door to RGE RD) is where we host semi-frequent RGE RD events and parties, and book private events. The food tends to be more experimental as we test out new tastes and dishes.
The space can fit 36 people with standing room, and 24 people for seated dining. Our own events range in style and capacity, and are usually pre-sold with tickets (follow us to be sure you can get a seat at the next one). Private events can be arranged by contacting us via email.

Monthly – Big Bottles in the Butchery
Join us each month for a reservation-free, communal seating affair with small plates and big bottles. We will be opening some special wines out of big bottles (magnums are considered the smallest) and pouring by the glass. For beer we will feature growlers from some of our best local breweries. For the menu we’ll mix things up each month with tasty small bites and sharesies.
Upcoming Big Bottles in the Butchery:
Tuesday, November 28 – starts at 5pm (and open till late)
At the intersection of farm, food, and friends.
The meals that started it all. Each summer, RGE RD organizes a lineup of Farm Dinners across Alberta. These are special events and we really enjoy putting them on.
We work closely with many of our farm partners and have built “farm kitchens” that allow us to connect our guests to where our food is grown and the wonderful farmers growing it.
2017 Farm Dinners
THE 2017 Farm Dinners have all wrapped up.
Thanks to everyone who was able to get out and attend our 2017 dinners at Nature’s Green Acres, Prairie Gardens, and Riverbend Gardens. The dinners are hibernating for the winter, and we’ll announce 2018’s dates sometime in the spring. In the meantime, sign up to our newsletter to get the announcement sent to your inbox.
Visit us each month at our Butchery for some freshly prepared terrines, rillettes, sausages and selection of cured meats from our larder. We also offer breads that use heritage grains sourced from local farmers and baked fresh daily out of our wood burning oven.
This little shop pops up once a month on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday from noon to 4pm.
Every item is first come first serve, and we stop selling when stock runs out. Phone ahead for large orders.
