Anne DesBrisay's Guide to Ottawa Restaurants
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.
For the past ten years, Anne DesBrisay’s weekly column for the Ottawa Citizen has established her as the city’s most reliable food critic. She lives in Ottawa with her husband, Ken, and their four boys.
