My wife, youngest son and I had brunch. Service was good, until we had to wait a long time to get the bill. However, our server was personable, knew the menu, could answer questions and kept my water glass full. My wife had pancakes while I had eggs Benedict. Our son had a sandwich of some sort, which I can not remember the name, kinda like a Monte Cristo but that's not fair! Prices were good as well.
It was nice to see Supply and Demand continues to offer a great dining experience. We started with their kale salad (always a hit)! and moved on to summer squash salad, beef tartar, and smoked trout. There bread is amazing! Each dish was excellent and prepared to perfection. Yes, they are a bit expensive but they definitely offer value for money. Their drinks menu is quite good including an assortment of craft beer. Our server was very pleasant. Our only disappointment was the noise level. The restaurant wasn't full, but the din made it somewhat difficult to have a conversation at our table. Overall, a very pleasant evening.
"CRAFT" - or at least a recycled variation on it - seems to be popping up like the now ubiquitous "the Works" burger chain, which is bittersweet to me. Don't get me wrong, over 100 draft beer choices and a vast, quality menu are great, but they tend to start feeling too common.The service was attentive enough for our large group (8 adults, 2 small children); the food was good, as in pub food with a twist; beer choices are truly overwhelming (in a good way!)The service could have been a little swifter and when we asked for a patio table the hostess told us the weather was preventing seating outside, yet 10 minutes later it was virtually clear and the patio was packed!Regardless, worth a visit especially if you're going to an event at Landsdowne, which is literally just upstairs from "Craft."
We took the train to Ottawa and my son wanted a hot dog, so I found this spot online.It is wonderfully located in the ByWard Market area. There is limited seating for groups, but it did not seem to be an issue, even when the counter lineup was long.I enjoyed the Smokin' Bird burger and the dipping sauce for the fries was phenomenal! Prices were reasonable given the big portions. Neither of us was able to finish our plates. Definitely worth checking out.
We had Chu Chee (Eggplant, Tofu stir fry) $17 and Makua Yaow Jae (Red Prawn Curry) $15, although I had have the the two dishes mixed up. The beer selection was minimal so we had a bottle of Beringer Cabernet Sauvignon $30 which seemed like the best deal and ended up drinking it all (our hotel was only 2 blocks away). The food was absolutely delicious on par with any Thai I've had this side of the Pacific Ocean.
