Pioneering Alberta's Urban-Rustic Food Scene

Led by co-chefs and co-owners John Jackson and Connie DeSousa, CHARCUT Roast House is one of Canada’s most lauded restaurants.

The restaurant’s every detail – from the reclaimed local barn wood panelling to the mason jar chandeliers – transports the authenticity and soul of local, farm-fresh producers and their flavourful ingredients to downtown’s most energetic restaurant and bar. 

With house butchered meats, homemade preserves, seasonal menus, Canada’s first beer steward overseeing cellared international brews, and a bustling open kitchen, Jackson, DeSousa and CHARCUT are helping put Calgary on the world’s culinary map.

Central and Stylish

Located downtown near the Calgary Tower, CHARCUT calls the contemporary Le Germain building home. Inviting interiors feature reclaimed barn wood accents and original local art.

Community Minded

CHARCUT supports local charity though its partnerships and pop-up restaurants.  It brings global chefs together to collaborate and mentors a service-driven, quality conscious team.

Award Winning

Upon opening CHARCUT was named to Canada's top 10 new restaurants by enRoute Magazine. The restaurant gains consistent high acclaim today.
