After my recent visit to San Francisco I felt the need to do a post on how lucky we are in Ottawa with our magnificent restaurant options. As someone who has dined in some pretty nice restaurants not only in San Francisco but also in New York city, Los Angeles, Chicago, Montreal and Toronto, I must say, we’ve got it made.
We are definitely way above average in terms of food, atmosphere and service in our city. I wanted to take this opportunity to list off some of our best eats, just as a reminder of how fortunate we Ottawans are. Here are my favourites:
Whalesbone Oyster House
Murray Street Kitchen
Sweetgrass Aboriginal Bistro
Also the Urban Element, which is not a restaurant but offers the most amazing food experiences.
And of course, the ones I still want to try:
Juniper (haven’t been in 8 years)
Wellington Gastropub (went when they first opened but have to go again)
Bistro Cordon Bleu
