Grill Forty One’s Executive Chef Brian Vallipuram sources local ingredients to design a menu reflecting a culinary journey from his native Sri Lanka to Europe, Jamaica, and Canada. Appetizers such as the Lord Elgin Breeze ($12)—hearts of palm, artichokes, roasted pepper, mixed greens, and cherry tomatoes drizzled in grape-seed oil and balsamic vinaigrette—invigorates palates and inspires diners to look up “hearts of palm” on their smart phones. Entrees range from a 7-ounce filet mignon ($34) accompanied by parsnip rosti and sautéed spinach to Caribbean-spiced bouillabaisse ($28), a stew of salmon, mussels, shrimp, scallops, and tilapia. Sides such as crepes ($7) and sweet-potato fries ($5) accessorize meals and add a tasty bit of technicolor to a high-definition world. Diners can indulge with a treat off of the dessert menu and wine list while lingering on the patio or lovingly gazing at the flat-screen TVs in the bar.

About Grill Forty One
Chef Brian Vallipuram garnered his flair for flavour in his birth country of Sri Lanka and honed it while training to become a Master Chef in kitchens across Europe and Pangea. After prestigious stints at various upscale eateries in Toronto, Brian headed to Rose Hall, Jamaica where he gleaned invaluable hotel-dining experience at the White Witch Restaurant at the Ritz Carlton Hotel. Currently rooted in Ottawa, Brian populates Grill Forty One's menu with handpicked fresh and local ingredients, enabling him to craft upscale dishes such as rack of lamb, slow-cooked duck, and Atlantic salmon.
Located inside the historic Lord Elgin Hotel, Grill Forty One takes its name from the year it came into fruition: 1941. Conceived of as a space where luxury mingles with warmth and a casual vibe, the eatery comprises a lounge with flat-screen TVs and huge windows where guests can gaze out onto vistas of Elgin Street and Confederation Park where squirrels are known to perform Shakespeare. Earth tones, wood trims, and a wall with built-in glass cabinets showcasing fine wines embellish the dining room. With booths and banquet seating, Grill Forty One accommodates those popping in for a cocktail before a night at the theatre or larger groups meeting for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
