Description
At MeNa, we believe fine dining should be a memorable experience. We make it our job to share pieces of art and culture by creating modern French dishes paired with tasteful Canadian wines to create the ultimate dining experience. By utilizing locally sourced ingredients, our new restaurant in the heart of Little Italy offers many things other do not. With a menu that features a twist on old favorites, exceptional drinks, and a unique tasting menu, MeNa is something that must be experienced and shared with friends. We are deeply rooted in tradition, but always have our eyes open, looking ahead to new flavours and concepts we know our patrons will enjoy. We could not be more driven to offer Ottawa a truly unique and progressive dining experience; we look forward to serving you at MeNa.
