Local spots in Ottawa make top 100 Best Restaurants list

Six Ottawa restaurants have made Canada’s 100 Best Restaurants List.

Determined by Canada’s 100 Best, the country’s only national food magazine, the local restaurants hit the top 100 according to a press release by the organization late Monday evening.

The magazine brings the opinions of 150 experts from across the country — like chefs, sommeliers, restaurant owners and bartenders — to compile the country’s best places for food. 

“The 2024 judging panel marks the largest number of judges the publication has ever used before,” a press release from the magazine reads.

This year’s top spot goes to Mon Lapin in Montreal. The top 10 spots feature restaurants from Toronto, Cambridge, Ont., Jordan Station, Ont., Vancouver, Verdun, Que. and Halifax.

Riviera — Spot 28

Located on Sparks Street, the upscale eatery serves a variety of seafood, pasta and meats. 

According to the restaurant’s website, the “stylish” spot in a heritage bank building offers food and drinks that take inspiration from the “retro vibe.”

“And then there’s dessert, with many treats to ponder, though you’d be a fool to miss the meringue pie,” it reads.

Atelier — Spot 43

Offering an “experiential” and “interactive” tasting menu with a variety of dietary options, Atelier has what it calls a “unique concept” for its menu.

Located on Rochester Street, the 40-course menu is “modernist” Canadian cuisine.

Owner and chef, Marc Lepine, spent his entire career learning the art of food, the website details.

Arlo — 71

The restaurant’s “local, fresh and fun food” has snagged a spot in Canada’s 100 list.

Paired with natural wine, the “comforting food” is a variety of salad appetizers and grilled meats.

The restaurant is located on Somerset Street West.

Supply and Demand — Spot 75

Owned by husband and wife duo, Steven and Jennifer Wall, the restaurant prides itself on the “neighbourhood” vibe.

“Our space is suitable for celebrating special occasions or milestones, dropping in after work with friends or colleagues to share a few oysters, or a night of warm bread and pasta with your family,” Supply and Demand’s website reads.

The menu is made with sustainable ingredients and meals are both “light” and “vibrant” featuring “vegetable-focused” plates.

The restaurant is located on Wellington Street West.

North & Navy — 95

Inspired by tradition, the restaurant says it uses the similar climates of eastern Ontario and northern Italy to make “classic” dishes with seasonal foods.

“Plus, sometimes we’ll just add whatever we want,” the website reads.

The restaurant is located on Nepean Street in downtown Ottawa.

Buvetter Daphnée — Spot 97

Clinching one of the last spots is Buvetter Daphnée a Québecois wine bar in the heart of the ByWard Market. 

Located on William Street, the restaurant offers plates to share over an extensive drinks menu.
