Cari and I spent the weekend in Ottawa, Ontario. It had been many years since I visited my nation’s capital, and in an attempt to find an easy-to-get-to weekend getaway, all signs pointed to Ottawa for our last weekend away before the baby is born.
Visiting a new city or country provides a foodie with the great opportunity to discover the best eating and drinking a city has to offer. At the same time, the opportunity is too often blown by the daunting process of finding the right places to eat. Thankfully, as we had exercised on our latest trip to New York City, the right research will often lead you to some fantastic restaurants. In the end, our food experiences in Ottawa were varied in that we were led our way by an Internet search, a word of mouth recommendation from a chance encounter in an elevator, a piece of hotel literature and an Urbanspoon search for “Bagels.”
