Long List: 10th anniversary #ottfood survey responses

By Apartment613 on March 6, 2020

There’s a lot of good food in Ottawa. We know this because a recent blog survey let us watch as our readers revealed gastronomical gems throughout the city; and recommended these to their fellow Apt613ers.

The tenth anniversary #ottfood survey asked Apartment613 readers across the city to name the best new restaurants, cafés and bars to open in Ottawa-Gatineau since 2009; the year our community website apt613.ca was launched.

The deadline for reader submissions has passed. Click here to see the survey results!

For further consideration, we’ve decided to publish this “long list” of food establishments which earned at least one reader nomination. Feeling lucky? Make a reservation at random. Want a new spot for date night? Search this list. We have confidence that these restaurants check out—they’re recommended by friends.
