Wednesday Thursday food and drink
▪️New produce store and wholesaler Mangosteen Grocery opened mere days ago and already they’re creating a buzz with their huge selection of fresh fruit and vegetables. Right now they’re selling boxes of bright red sweet peppers for $4.99 each, and green clementines (their top seller) are $1.99 per pound. Those who like to create their own brine can buy raw olives, and the proprietors tell us that they’ll have mangosteen fruit in stock soon too. 1742 Bank Street, K1V 7Y6
▪️The Beechwood and Elgin Street outdoor street markets have now closed for the season, but shopping with their vendors is still very much a go online. You can order your weekly egg order, buy some jewellery, or plan a nice evening in with a ready made meal.
▪️Ottawa has a new steakhouse, Harmon’s, led by Chef Michael Korn, formerly a senior saucier at Beckta
▪️Bar Lupulus has been voted one of Canada's top 100 outdoor patios by the users of OpenTable (The List)
▪️Beandigen Café has been selected by Ottawa Sports & Entertainment for the pop-up shop programme at Landsdowne Park. The Café will feature Indigenous artists, Indigenous-designed merchandise, coffee and food.
