Foodie Friday: Town loves you (and we love Town)

I was treated to the most excellent of birthday dinners at Town by two dear friends last month. As someone who loves good food, it was a surprise that I had not already been since it opened in June of 2010. Having looked at the menu beforehand, I was excited when the night of our reservations […]

Continuing my series on Open Mic/Open Jam nights in our Capital, this month brings me to the wonderfully snug pub of Woody’s in Ottawa’s Golden Triangle downtown area of Elgin St., a busy street which hosts a wealth of activity throughout the year, including the annual Ball Hockey Tournament, Charity Chili Cook-Off, and has been […]

Foodie Friday: Sidedoor Contemporary Kitchen and Bar

Always starving, always thirsty, always writing. Aspiring sommelier and food aficionado studying media and film at Carleton University in the capital, Aryn Pepper can also be found on her blog, Vino Vidii Vicii (v.v.v.).

Poutine Week is taking place across multiple cities in Québec and Ontario with just under 20 restaurants […]

It should be an interesting opportunity to taste some new stuff. There are only two names on the list […]

West side business comings and goings

There’s been lots of action on and around Wellington West these past few weeks. Here’s a rundown of moves, new business openings and future businesses along the strip.

Breaking: Marysol Foucault closing one of her wonderful restaurants

Marysol Foucault’s cuisine is one of the reasons why committed Ottawans cross the river to Gatineau every weekend for brunch. The food she creates is spectacular and the ambiance she has created at both Chez Edgar and Odile is chic and homey. Sadly for us, but good for Marysol, she announced on Monday that she will […]

Foodie Friday: Terrific tacos at El Camino

Post by Adria May and Ryan Saxby Hill, Senior Taco Correspondents When we arrived at El Camino, Chef Carmichael’s new taco joint, the place was packed and there was a line up at the take-out window.
