Giuseppe Lamma’s Bolog­nese Hot Choco­late. Based on an Ital­ian recipe dat­ing to 1660, this hot choco­late is in­fused with or­ange and spiced with cin­na­mon. 53 Wil­liam St., 623-860-1991, ca­cao70.ca

Alpine Hot Choco­late. Chef-owner Tammy Gi­u­liani uses fresh milk, qual­ity choco­late, and a bit of cream in this rich, frothy recipe from the Ital­ian Alps. 1103 Bank St., 613-523-1116, slge­lato.com The first thing you may no­tice when you walk into Union

is the com­mu­nal seat­ing — long ta­bles with benches en­cour­age pa­trons to frat­er­nize with com­plete strangers. The warm and ge­nial am­bi­ence is re­flected in a south­ern-in­spired menu, with dishes such as grits and fried chicken. The imag­i­na­tive cock­tails are an ad­ven­ture in and of them­selves. If you’re drop­ping by for a drink, check out the speakeasy hid­den be­hind a bookcase in the base­ment — se­cluded and dimly-lit, the am­biance will take you back to the days of Pro­hi­bi­tion. 315 Som­er­set St. W., 613-231-1010, union613.ca
