Wednesday Food + Drink
▪️Four Ottawa restaurants have made OpenTable's Top 100 Restaurants in Canada list: Atelier, Bar Lupulus, North & Navy, and Riviera
▪️Meanwhile, Ottawa magazine introduces three new restaurants: Giulia, Vivann, and Sans Façon
▪️NarCity says these are the 11 best mexican restaurants in Ottawa
▪️NarCity also loves the new Saigon Restaurant: “it's the mix of cocktail bar and street food that we've been missing”
▪️The Citizen like the prices at La Taverna, which features '75 per cent dishes'. We think that means that they are big small plates.
Let someone else cook Christmas dinner
▪️No roast turkey here: Taj Indian Cuisine has Christmas and New Years meals for carnivores, vegans, vegetarians, and non-gluten eaters, all containing one appetizer, three mains, two rice dishes, three Naan, and dessert. From $95. Pre-orders are being taken now at 613-726-6955.
▪️For a group: The Brookstreet Hotel’s Christmas spread to go will feed up to 10 people, fully cooked, for $350. The meal includes a 15lb roast turkey, stuffing, dauphinoise potatoes, veggie medley, cranberry compote, and gravy. You can pick up on December 24th or 25th, take it home and warm it up.
▪️For two: Rather than an entire bird, you’ll get enough breast and leg meat for two people in the Whalesbone’s Christmas Dinner in a Box, $70. Sides include stuffing, cranberry compote, potatoes, cauliflower and cheese gratin, Brussel sprouts, rutabaga, gravy, and buns. Available for pickup on December 23rd and 24th.
▪️Yesterday, we wrote about a Federally-owned corporation building housing near Dow's Lake. It's the Canada Lands Corporation, not the Crown Lands Corporation, which, as far as we can determine, is completely a fiction of Darren's imagination.
▪️Our links to the City of Ottawa's 15 Minute Neighbourhoods report may have crashed the City's computers. Sorry, City. Some time after we hit send, the report and maps were no longer available at those links.
However, afterwards, we found the same info placed by the City on Amazon AWS servers, which are far more robust and certainly can handle traffic from the ottawan.
Here is the report.
Here's the page with all the maps.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
