Whether you need a spectacular venue to fête a big event or you just don’t want to do the dishes, Capital Dining has a suggestion for you. From celebrated to underrated, haute cuisine to come-as-you-are, this guide is an up-to-date compilation of over 100 reviews of some of the Ottawa-Gatineau region’s best restaurants by Anne DesBrisay, Ottawa’s most authoritative dining voice. The restaurants are identified by a number of useful categories, including type of food, neighbourhood, price range, outdoor dining, family-friendly, open Sunday, and late-night feasting. Each review features capsule notes on the establishment’s key features: accessibility, cost, and hours of operation. Insightful and informative, these reviews reflect the objective opinion of a professionally trained and passionately engaged expert in all things edible. The first restaurant guide to the area in over a decade, this book is invaluable for anyone living in or visiting Ottawa, whether they have a serious interest in dining out, or are simply in need of advice on where to spend their restaurant dollar.
