Food + Drink Update: Patios & Donuts
It’s the patio season and two local restaurants have made Open Table’s 100 Best Outdoor Dining Restaurants in Canada for 2022 list: Bar Lupulus and Riviera.
But Ottawa has no shortage of outdoor dining spots, both in the city and in the Valley. Get out there and enjoy yourself.
▪️The patio at Joe’s Italian Kitchen in Almonte is now open for the season. Overlooking a waterfall, Joe’s has one of the best views in the Valley. You can also eat outside at the Wellington West location (no waterfall though).
▪️The creative menus, cocktails, and casual vibe make Sandy Hill’s Working Title Kitchen a very good choice for patio dining.
▪️Come for a cocktail from the “Golden Hour” menu (3:00pm to 5:00pm) and stay for the Southeast Asian-inspired, family style sharing menu at Sidedoor. The patio is now open.
▪️You don’t have to be a cycling enthusiast to enjoy Bike Cafe’s Spark Street patio, but if you do bring your bike, you can get a tune-up while you savour your croissant. You’ll also get in some superb people watching. 70 Sparks Street.
▪️In addition to full menu of chicken sandwiches, Holly’s Hot Chicken has Caramel Peanut Butter Donuts today, for $4 each or six for $20. We just thought you should know. Open until 8:00pm at 45 Armstrong Street in Mechanicsville.
▪️Ogham Craft Spirits micro-distillery in Kanata has been selling their hooch in maple syrup bottles due to a shortage of glass.
▪️The Citizen reckons that you'll enjoy new fish house Le Poisson Bleu as long as you accept that ‘top-tier and even avant-garde seafood is to be celebrated in relaxed surroundings’.
Emmylou Harris & The Red Dirt Boys, Wynton Marsalis, Kamasi Washington, and Blue Rodeo are but a few of the headliners at the 2022 TD Ottawa Jazz Festival(June 24-July 3). Gold, Bronze, Youth & Day Passes are on sale now.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
