Ottawa - foodie itinerary

LemonLauren | Feb 7, 2013 05:58 PM

Help, O-towners! I'm a TO foodist visiting Ottawa in March. I love local-inspired cuisine with any and all cultural influences, love drinking local wine and craft beer, love places where that feel cool and hip but where I can still have a conversation and receive good service. I like veggies and seafood and my partner likes simple pasta and red meat and pork dishes, but we're both not fans of game/offal-centred dishes. Some charcute is fine, but seafood and veg choices are a necessity.

Here's our tentative itinerary. The places below were all suggestions from friends in the food/hospitality industry. Honestly, the dinner menus at Beckta, Town and Gezellig (also suggested) aren't really appealing to us. The Hintonburg area looks very cool (okay, hipster cool) but none of the places looks like full meals for me, so I'd like to do a crawl-type night there. Let me know if I'm missing places.

Please give it a look and critique! We're staying at the Marriot Residence downtown but happy to take O-trans wherever.

I propose:

Thursday
Dinner: Navarra
Drinks before/after: Murray Street

Friday
Lunch: Play

Dinner: Pub/snack crawl:
Two Six Ate
Suzy Q donuts
Hintonburg Public House
Wellington Gastropub

Saturday
Running the St. Patrick's Day 10k

Lunch --> NEED SUGGESTIONS!

Dinner: Whalesbone
Drinks before/after at:
327 Wine Bar
Union 613

Sunday
Brunch: Zen Kitchen

Thanks in advance!
