At the Brook­street Ho­tel

Ottawa Business Journal - Ottawa at Home - - FOOD EATING OUT -

One of the most el­e­gant lunch spots in the west end is Per­spec­tives Restau­rant at Kanata’s Brook­street Ho­tel. With its chic, mod­ern dé­cor, Per­spec­tives of­fers out­stand­ing am­bi­ence and ex­cep­tional cui­sine. Nes­tled be­side a golf course, it of­fers beau­ti­ful vis­tas any time of year and in sum­mer­time the pa­tio seems worlds away from the hus­tle and bus­tle of the city.

Given Per­spec­tives’ rep­u­ta­tion for never rush­ing guests, groups tend to linger over lunch. Many choose to ex­tend their visit with a com­ple­men­tary dip in one of the ho­tel’s salt-wa­ter pools, a ses­sion in the Flex Fit­ness Stu­dio, or a treat­ment at the lux­u­ri­ous on-site spa. Equally pop­u­lar with lo­cal ex­ec­u­tives, ho­tel guests and ladies who lunch, the restau­rant’s bright, so­phis­ti­cated at­mos­phere is matched by ex­cel­lent sea­sonal fare and out­stand­ing wines.

“With Brook­street host­ing the ma­jor­ity of NHL teams that play against the Se­na­tors, it is not un­com­mon to see a hockey star din­ing at Per­spec­tives, or high pro­file busi­ness leaders din­ing in our pri­vate din­ing lounge,” notes Brook­street’s mar­ket­ing man­ager Caro­line Sav­i­gnac. “Chef Clif­ford Ly­ness takes great care in craft­ing lunch menus to in­cor­po­rate sea­sonal, re­gional in­gre­di­ents. He of­fers lighter choices and clas­sic favourites, as well as selections that ap­peal to every­one from veg­e­tar­i­ans to fans of a great steak.”

Par­tic­u­larly pop­u­lar at lunchtime are fresh fish, creative soups, savoury pas­tas and crisp greens. What­ever your pref­er­ence, with temp­ta­tions like a Val­rhona chocolate souf­flé on the menu, it’s a good idea to save room for dessert be­cause even ladies who lunch of­ten de­serve a sweet treat now and then.
