Main Street Cellar Wine Bar

Executive Chef Amos Jarbeau and Sous Chef Ian Sunstrum wonder what to serve for tonight's special. Instead of looking in the cooler, they walk across the street to the local butcher and check out the available whole cuts of meat. Afterward, the duo heads toward the street corner, where a Roots and Shoots farm stand displays freshly picked organic produce. It's a typical day for the chefs, who continually tailor Main Street Cellar Wine Bar's menu to what's in season and what's local.

To enhance the nuances of the changing dishes, Main Street's four sommeliers—who include owners Paul Paton and Kim Burns—recommend vintages from a continually evolving wine list that spans regions from France to British Columbia. Paton and Burns play upon guests’ senses within a home built in the 1880s, where a varying decor of exposed brick walls, gleaming wood accents, and cushy black leather chairs with tufted backs creates different feels in each room. But Main Street's most popular space is its casual back courtyard, where diners enjoy seclusion from the main road and Ottawa's cutthroat paparazzi.
