It’s in Rideau Centre’s new and newly located food centre where the old Sears was. There’s a place that sells nothing but varieties of grilled cheese. A creperie. A gelato place that decorates the tops of ice cream like the better places in Rome do. A burger place. A chocolate bon bon spot.
The new space? Amazing ventilation system. People cooking over grills, flames and smoke shooting up 3 feet and not a whiff of odor a few feet away. It could be improved with some soft ceiling hangings maybe. 20 people could be in that hard surfaced space and it sound like a clatter. It’s pretty and good traffic circulation and good fare but at peak eating time, super loud. The new floors are slippery enough that my shoes were slidy. A few girls had their arms outstretched and were in skating postures and sliding along. Great surfaces for when it comes time to clean. Not so great to navigate otherwise.
