Fodor's Expert Review Benitz Bistro

$$$ Ottawa French

Chef Derek Benitz takes advantage of local ingredients to produce classical but contemporary French cuisine. Inside the cozy dining room or on the outdoor patio of this Victorian-style houses, one of many on Somerset Street, you can opt for the four-course Tasting Plate (C$20). The appetizer-size portions might include pimento-dusted wild prawns with corn salsa, seared foie gras on harvest compote, or braised veal medallion with eryngii mushrooms. In fall, herb-crusted Cornish hen is skillet roasted and served with organic mushroom fricasée, fingerling potatoes, and harvest vegetables.
