ABOUT US

LET THE GOOD TIMES CONTINUE

MEET OUR CHEF

From fan favourite pizzas to the legendary Melrose ginger beef - Melrose has a classic, flavourful, and elevated approach to our offerings, all thanks to our well-seasoned Chef. From humble beginnings, Chef Jacob poured his heart & soul into cooking meals for his family & friends at a very young age. He always dreamed of running his own kitchen and team, and can proudly say that each menu Melrose releases is filled with intentionally delicious offerings that aren’t overly complicated. Good food comes from good ingredients and good intentions. See for yourself.

THE MELROSE TEAM IS MADE UP OF PASSIONATE INDIVIDUALS WHO TAKE HOSPITALITY SERIOUSLY!

Each member has been rooted within the Calgary community for decades and has contributed to the success and execution of multiple flagship Calgary restaurants and bars.

This man is a Calgary legend, and is involved with many iconic
projects! To know where he is going, you have to know where
he has been.

Going back to 1991, The Leong family saw an opportunity in a large building on the iconic 17th ave strip. To most people, the space was viewed as a never-ending project, but for the Leung’s, this building was destined to be their legacy.

The parents, Ming and Sue, worked hard at reviving the space and worked in the kitchen to help with prep. Both sons, Wayne and Kent, spent their time creating the concept, overseeing the facilities, and the operational structure.

After hard work, sweat equity, and a lot of love, the site transformed into the original trendy Melrose Calgarians know and love—a place to create memories, meet friends, and pull up a seat.
