February 23–March 1: Delicious “bring-your own wine” restaurants
This week in #outaouaisfun, I’m featuring restaurants that are worth the trip and whose wine list won’t cost you an arm and a leg. That’s because, as you’ve probably guessed from the title of this entry, all three are “bring your own wine” (BYOW) restaurants.
Giorgio and Le Steak frites St-Paul
Italian pasta or a nice juicy steak? You can decide when you get there: Giorgio and Le Steak frites St-Paul share the same Gatineau location. With their warm, casual atmosphere and reasonable prices, they’re ideal for get-togethers with family and friends. Besides, Giorgio’s fresh garlic buns and Le Steak frites St- Paul’s home fries are to die for! Don’t forget the wine!
Meule et Caquelon
Meule et Caquelon (the name means “cheese wheel and fondue pot”) features Swiss-inspired cuisine to tempt the most discriminating palate. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a glass or two of wine over a tasty Chinese fondue, raclette or cheese fondue. So grab your fork and gather round the fondue pot! (Warning: This meal may lead to extended conversation and storytelling!)
Saigon Thai and Prasat Thai
If you’re hankering for Thai food, here are two great spots in Gatineau: Saigon Thai and Prasat Thai. Saigon Thai specializes in authentic, gluten-free Asian and Thai dishes, while Prasat Thai, a local favourite for 15 years, features Cambodian, Thai and Vietnamese food. Try the house specialties, the “love nest” and the “Thai nest.” Bon appétit!
