hometown glory

Enjoy it!Spring is a lovely time to be in Ottawa, as we welcome warm weather and sunshine, flower baskets and fiddleheads in the Byward Market, and restaurant patios opening for business. There’s another reason to be particularly proud of our town this season. Chef Yannick LaSalle of Les Fougères restaurant in Chelsea, QC, representing Ottawa/Gatineau at the 2019 Canadian Culinary Championships in Kelowna, brought home the Gold Medal.Residents of the capital city only need to cross the Ottawa river in order to enjoy the fabulous food coming out of our neighbouring province, including the Eastern Townships duck and Quebec-grown saffron that featured in LaSalle’s winning dish.

BETTER WITH BACONCan you believe it? Free bacon with your drink! And it’s not just a gimmick, the wine list at the Orleans Grapevine is sophisticated and you can order tasting flights at Happy Hour prices. The tiny courtyard out back has a fountain and a few tables, snag a seat there if you can. www.orleansgrapevine.comCool Tunes, Good EatsI lucked out at Marigny Brasserie on Frenchmen Street as fried green tomatoes were on the menu and local musician Salvatore Geloso was laying it down. Dude’s a dedicated street musician and if you can track him down, you won’t regret it. Frenchmen Street has a block party vibe and plenty of jazz venues.
