The food is as Canadian as the soil it's grown in. Our chef has pulled inspiration from the culture that surrounds us, it is rustic yet contemporary. Visit Chef Jesse at the interactive charcuterie bar for some locally cured meats and handcrafted charcuterie or take a look at the seasonal ever changing farm to table menu.The drink, showcases our craft whether from the brewery, winery or right at home behind our bar. Pull up a stool and discover Ottawa's new standard for cocktails. You can catch our bartenders setting the standard for Ottawa bar craft, mixing our signature cocktails, creativity being the most common ingredient.
