One bucket list attempt thwarted (for now)
(EDIT - The Lido Cafe is now back up and good to go - the AHS notice was simply regarding the renovations)
There’s nothing more irritating than when you have your heart set on dining out at a particular Calgary restaurant and find that it is closed. On the Lido’s front door is a notice by Alberta Health Services that the restaurant is closed. While not technically in the downtown, the Lido Cafe in Sunnyside was considered by many a d-spot that had its charm with the greasy-spoon diner feel and varied menu items (think Chinese food with your baked potato). The restaurant was in the midst of re-painting the interiors, so it’s possible that this closure by the AHS is strictly short-term (paint fumes, etc.). The Lido’s web page is under construction, with no news of the closure. Links and the AHS notice under the fold.
