There are a few Ot­tawa es­tab­lish­ments that have earned a rep­u­ta­tion as favourite spots to cel­e­brate life’s spe­cial oc­ca­sions. From en­gage­ments in the mak­ing to mile­stone birthdays and an­niver­saries, th­ese restau­rants know how to make events – big or small – even more mem­o­rable. “Our space is flex­i­ble so peo­ple can have an evening that is in­ti­mate or lively, de­pend­ing upon their taste. We are small enough to be able to re­spond to in­di­vid­ual re­quests.”

— KIM BURNS, CO-OWNER, MAIN STREET CEL­LAR Those liv­ing in the south­ern reaches of the re­gion know that the MAIN

STREET CEL­LAR in Man­otick is a great spot for a pri­vate party – whether you’re a group of two or a gath­er­ing of up to forty. Housed in a beau­ti­fully ap­pointed cen­tury home, reg­u­lar events in­clude re­hearsal din­ners, wed­dings, birthdays and re­tire­ment par­ties. “Our space is flex­i­ble so peo­ple can have an evening that is in­ti­mate or lively, de­pend­ing upon their taste. We are small enough to be able to re­spond to in­di­vid­ual re­quests,” ex­plains Kim Burns, co-owner and trained som­me­lier (one of sev­eral on staff). The Main Street Cel­lar is well known for its wine se­lec­tions, but the food is also su­perb. They can pro­vide cus­tom­ized menus for groups, as well as guided wine and food tast­ings, to make a spe­cial event more unique and en­joy­able.
