It’s no surprise that I’m a big “foodie” and love to discover new culinary stops in Ottawa.
For just over a year I’ve been following Dave Sherf’s (Mr. Flying Banzini) journey from a great restaurant to it’s fruition.
I was one of the lucky few who was invited to a “soft opening” of The Flying Banzini (1242 Wellington Street West, Ottawa ON) last night in the former home of Collected Works Bookstore in Westboro and here is my Ottawa restaurant review. My first thought when entering was how incredible the transformation is. Dave has put a lot of work into the space and you can really tell how much of himself is present in every detail.
The restaurant has an “order at the counter” set-up, however once we were comfortably seated, I quickly realized that The Flying Banzini had a way of making you forget that you’d ordered at a counter. It has very much that “sit down restaurant” feel.
