      Unfortunately, Sweetgrass is closed - according to a blog by a local food writer, the future is uncertain as the owners are looking for investors.

      That area of Ottawa is the ByWard Market - lots of good restos there: Domus, Play, Navarra, Chez Lucien, French Baker (breakfast), Benny's Bistro.

      West of the downtown core, I really like Wellington Gastropub.
