No.3 NeXT @nextottawa
If you could not find a nice place to eat in the west of Canada, you have to try their 9-course chef’s choice blind sharing menu.
Their new menu is phenomenal, with such varieties and interesting recipes. And the blind tasting is like your tastebuds are being bombarded by amazing experiences.

No. 4 Feast + Revel Andaz Ottawa @feastandrevel
You have to try some Copper Spirits + Sights, and enjoy some of the best sunset views in the city. Canadian cuisine with some craft beers maybe one of the best Christmas dinner ideas this year. My favorite one is the Salt + Sugar cured and roasted Nagano pork belly, compressed watermelon, Vietnamese caramel, ricotta, and mint honey.

It is Ottawa’s premier Italian fine dining place nestled in the heart of Ottawa’s Little Italy. Giovanni’s has endeavored to pride itself by creating first class mouth-watering dishes served up night after night by their expertly knowledgeable wait staff.
If you like some spicy food, you can try the 14 oz veal chop, topped with oyster mushrooms and pepper corn sauce. How about a big dinner with a beautiful made Burrata studded Ravioli with lobster and saffron sauce.
Address: 362 Preston St, Ottawa, ON K1S 4M7

No. 8 Atelier @atelierottawa
If you are not familiar with Ottawa’s Little Italy, you can’t call yourself a foodie. The multi-course tasting menu is prepared using hypermodern culinary techniques and technology. The owner/chef Marc Lepine is the first chef to win the gold medal at the Canadian Culinary Championships twice!
