Located in Calgary’s East Village, our focus is a result of the influence of Chef Darren MacLean’s mother on his cuisine. Her love of plants, vegan recipes, and an appreciation of Fish and Sushi is why the restaurant chose to reflect these values not only just in the food but by the namesake of NUPO which is derived from her maiden name Nuponnen.

Trendy, intimate spot offering pizzas with creative gourmet toppings, signature kale salads & wine.
11. Von Der Fels

12. Cassis Bistro
