For a special occasion

Southern-Style Comfort Food

Thought northerners couldn’t do southern-style hospitality? Think again! At Union 613,  communal seating and a dimly lit, lively atmosphere will make you feel like you’re chowing down with the family. Go for the Louisiana catfish, cornbread and bourbon brown butter – you won’t be disappointed.

Perfect Pizza

Pizza lovers – do not leave Ottawa without a trip to Slice & Co. With both thin crust and deep dish offerings, toppings like double-smoked bacon, great salads and yummy cocktails, you’ll definitely want to linger in this cozy spot for quite a while.

Molecular Gastronomy

If you’re curious about the baffling and exquisite foams, mousses and powders of molecular gastronomy, then pull up a seat at Atelier, where local, seasonal ingredients are transformed into mind-blowing works of Art.
