Eating out

The Byward Market area is a great place to sample everything from Brazilian Churrasco barbecue to French haute cuisine. Local speciailities include the Beaver Tail - a fried dough cake with lemon and sugar and the Poutine, a tastes-better-than-it-sounds blend of french fries, curd cheese and gravy.
