SPLITT closed!

I know that I've never really posted about SPLITT before, because it is a restaurant in Calgary, but as many of us Edmontonians travel to Calgary on a fairly regular basis it may have some impact. SPLITT is a restaurant where nearly every menu item for breakfast, lunch, and dinner can be ordered gluten free/dairy free which is perfect for Celiac's and non-Celiacs alike. They even serve gluten free beer! They have the absolute best gf fish & chips, and everything else is pretty good too (when's the last time you had ginger beef?). Unfortunately right around Christmas time, they had to close their doors. Hopefully this is just a temporary thing, as they are fighting to reopen.
Here is a copy of an email I received from Dave, the owner of SPLITT.

Hello Celiac friends. Dave from Splitt here. Yes it is true Splitt is done and it is very unfortunate. We definitely want Splitt to come back but I need all of your help. We are currently in a legal battle for defamation and I need to build as strong of case as possible. In order for this to happen I need to show that Splitt was a destination for allot of people not just a neighborhood pub/restaurant. So if at all possible can each person on this list please send me there postal code with there name so I can show that people travel to come here and either NW / NE / SW / SE. Believe me this information will go no further than myself and my lawyer and possible the court if it goes that far I need to put a geographical representation of our patrons.

I would appreciate all of your help....Please....



If you want to support SPLITT, please email your name, postal code, city to
