It’s a good thing Uji Café looks ready for Ottawa, since Ottawa seems more than ready for it.
Alison Larabie Chase blogs about cooking and restaurants at This Dessert Life when she’s not herding cats, working in association communications, or traveling the world. It had to be intimidating, moving into Beckta’s old house on Nepean Street. But as far as I can tell, North & Navy is making it their own with […]
As someone who lives in Chinatown and loves to eat, I noticed with interest when I saw that a new restaurant was opening at the corner of Somerset and Arthur. Honey Town takes up the western end of the plaza that also houses Possible Worlds, the store and workshop space opened by Spins and Needles, […]
Remember Prohibition? Me neither, as it was almost a century ago, but I have watched the Untouchables numerous times and so I can confidently say that Waller St. Brewing’s ambiance and styling do an excellent job paying homage to that dark period in Canadian beer history. The new brewery, located in the basement of 14 […]
Jordan Duff is a regular contributor over at BrewBrahs, where they talk about everything beer. You can also find them on Twitter. If you’re a beer drinker in Ottawa – heck, in Ontario – then you’ve sampled a Beau’s brew. They’ve been creating craft suds since before it was cool, way back in 2006. With dozens of breweries now […]

I recently moved home to Ottawa from Vancouver, where the juice craze is in full force. Vancouver’s The Juice Truck, a florescent-coloured kitchen on wheels, parks in trendy Gastown every day – serving cold-pressed juices and scrumptious smoothies to business-people and yogis alike. Retailers like Glory Juice Co and the Juice Box have moved from […]
Throughout the year, Apt613 is partnering with the National Arts Centre to bring you restaurant reviews by musicians who are part of the all-Canadian NAC Presents concert series. Royal Wood is our first two-time contributor. After reviewing the Back Lane Cafe, we sent him out to Old Ottawa South to try Taylor’s Genuine Kitchen & Wine. […]
I know when I think about Beau’s Oktoberfest, three things come to mind: locally-brewed beer, preventative hangover cures, and how much fun it is to say “Vankleek.” But one of the more underrated aspects of the two-day festival — at least, in terms of being the main reason people make the 90-km trek from Ottawa […]
So, I’m one of those annoying, unabashed foodie types that waxes on about the merits of things that are cooked sous-vide while en route to the newest chic taco joint. As a devotee of all things tasty, I inevitably find myself leaving a restaurant with a take-out container filled with the night’s left-overs, which are […]
Ottawa boys Matt Hinds and Layne Belcher are the owners of the Urban Cowboy, a member of the recently announced food truck fleet that’s set to hit Ottawa in May of this year. With their truck currently in the retrofitting stage, the pair is busy finalizing menu and branding details. Apt613: First and foremost, what are […]
