Murray Street has all the makings of a nice evening, with a healthy selection of Old & New World wines, outstanding charcuterie, and a constantly changing menu that's upscale without being pretentious. It's a nice place for a leisurely meal, not far from the Market.
The Murry Street Kitchen is located in Ottawa’s renowned Byward Market and features locally produced meats and cheese in its menu. The Kitchen is popular enough to have been featured on the Food Network. The concept is that the restaurant buys its meat one animal at a time. The menu changes on a nightly basis to reflect the cuts being presented. With a great selection of local beer, wine and original cocktails the restaurant has found a recipe for its local success. Many reviews suggest you try one of the restaurants most popular appetizers, the duck comfit poutine, but the cow heart is another crowd favorite. Entrees feature a variety of offerings, but one of their newest additions is the Ox-apus (octopus comfit and oxtail) was absolutely delicious. In addition to a variety of sweets the restaurant also offers fantastic platters of locally produced cheeses with exotic and delicious jams ( E.g. Saskatoon berry) a perfect way to end the meal.
