Restaurant Watch: Red Apron adds a bit of gourmet to your Gladstone lunch

Written by on

Busy foodies (and those sick of President’s Choice General Tao’s chicken) likely know about the Red Apron‘s take-home foods.

Little might you know, but these cows are part of Ottawa’s growing local food movement and its burgeoning locavore scene.
