East End food and drink
▪️Broadhead has released the ultra-fresh Wet Hop Harvest Ale 2.0, which uses hops that made it from vine to vessel in under 24 hours. It pours a dark amber and releases floral, citrus, pine, and grapefruit aromas, and you’ll taste citrusy fruit, grass, and pine, caramel and malt. Grab it now at the brewery or have it delivered.
▪️Maker Feed Co, a farm to table restaurant in Cumberland, recently celebrated one year in business. They’re launching a Sunday brunch menu full of fresh, local ingredients and high end presentation like everything else they prepare. Highlights of the new menu are Pork Belly Benny and Duck Benny, but you’ll also find French Toast with Maple Crème Anglaise and crepes. 2607 Old Montreal Road.
▪️Pumpkins aren’t the only stars of the Fall season: beets, with their brilliantly purple flesh and crunchy sweetness, elevate everything from main courses to salads, and even chocolatey desserts. The Beet Salad at Le St Laurent restaurant is a pile of beets, plums, and greens with a tangy goat cheese croquette on top, and the whole salad is sprinkled with black walnut vinegar soaked walnuts. Open Wednesday through Sunday from 5:00pm at Penthouse, 460 St. Laurent Blvd.
▪️Tomorrow’s Orlèans Market, brought to you by Ottawa Farmers’ Market, opens at 11:00am at the Ray Friel Centre. Vendors will be selling in-season cruciferous veg like cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and Bok Choy, and of course that Thanksgiving standby, the humble Brussel Sprout.
▪️Caravela, the Orlèans’ destination for Portuguese food, will be closed on Sundays and Mondays until November 1st, but that means Ottawans still have five whole days each week to savour a menu that’s bursting with seafood, lamb, pork, rabbit, and vegetarian dishes. 3712 Innes Road, Unit 3 (Rio Can Centre), Orlèans.
