A World of Choice

Third and final installment in a series on the Red Deer Downtown business Association’s Time for Lunch campaign.
I am on the last mile for my culinary tour through downtown Red Deer. This week, I was treated to some Authentic Greek fare, some traditional Chinese dim sum, and then a walk through International coffee house that offers a taste of food from different regions of the world and finally walk through Grandma’s kitchen at Café Millennium.

Second in a series of articles on the Downtown Business Association's Time for Lunch campaign.
There’s a time for grabbing a takeout lunch or hitting a chain restaurant with friends, and then there’s a time for treating yourself to the fine dining experience! Continuing with “Time for Lunch” Campaign by the Downtown Business Association, this week, my culinary journey led me through Red Deer downtown restaurants that are waltzing to an elegant tune while boasting some of their best culinary fare. KIA-ORA, La Casa Pergola and Botanica are restaurants of choice if one is looking to enjoy a meal that is authentically prepared using high-quality ingredients and served in an atmosphere of quiet elegance.
Do Lunch In Style-DOWNTOWN
Tuesday, June 12th 2012
Whatever you are in the mood for, chances are, downtown Red Deer has something to tickle your fancy! The last few years has produced exciting new developments and opportunities with the revitalization of the downtown district.
Speciality shops, expanding arts and entertainment and most importantly, the emergence of variety of restaurants has given this area a new vibrancy and energy.
Our ‘small town yet urban city’ can unequivocally boast about its fine upscale restaurants, unique cafes, gourmet coffee shops and flavour focused multi-cultural eateries.
To get people reacquainted with the ‘new’ downtown, the Red Deer Downtown Business Association is running a ‘Time for Lunch’ campaign where restaurants are featuring their promotional lunches during the month of June.
Knowing my love for food, I was asked to take a culinary tour through downtown. Over the next few weeks, I’ll relate my experiences and share my gastronomic journey through downtown Red Deer.
Lunch Promotion Encourages People to 'Eat and Tweet'

From Harley Richards, Red Deer Advocate
There’s no such thing as a free lunch.
Unless, perhaps, you’re eating in downtown Red Deer this month and have a flare for tweeting.
The Red Deer Downtown Business Association has joined with 11 restaurants in the city’s core to organize a Time For Lunch campaign.
The lunch crowd is being encouraged to sample the offerings of the participating restaurants, each of which has four feature items. Customers who tweet about their experiences will have a chance at winning a meal for their efforts.
“We are harnessing the power of Twitter and the hashtag #Timeforlunch to get people to tweet what they eat and win gift certificates for free food,” said DBA promotions director Janice Shimek.
