another dinner at Union Local 613

It seems I've blogged the incredible restaurant here in Ottawa called Union Local 613 twice already (here and here) but I have got to blog it again as it is THAT GOOD. My husband and I were there last night for dinner and stuffed ourselves until it hurt - literally. It was AWESOME and when my folks get back from their 2 month hiatus in Mexico, we're going to take them there. This is southern cuisine at it's finest. And the cocktails are out of this world. (Sorry some of these photos are blurry - hard to shoot in low light)

my first cocktail - TO DIE FOR - Hibiscus rum punch {5 year flor de cana rum, spiced hibiscus punch }

boiled peanuts to munch on

Jeff's app { mike mckenzie’s smoked ham, pimento cheese, bread & butter pickles, saltines }

my app { crispy collards & roasted beet salad, radish, grapefruit, clarmell goat cheese, smoked arbequina olive oil, sherry vinegar }

my second cocktail - Centennial Tea { 10 year centennial whiskey, cold sweet tea }

Jeff's main - { miami-style shortribs, dr. pepper & soy glaze, magic chilis & peanuts, peashoots with a side of roasted carrot & clarmell feta salad, parsley, pumpkin seeds, cumin dressing }

my main { cracker crusted louisianna catfish, pecan puree, wilted frisee & lemon with a side of cheddar & roasted garlic hominy grits }

i really didn't need this { pineapple-lime jelly, coconut milk & sailor jerry’s anglaise, crumbled macaroon & shaved pineapple }

We are also on a 5 and 1/2 months hiatus in Europe and coming back to Ottawa at mid-April. We are not homesick but seeing some great photos of what Ottawa has to offer make it to my heart & soul. Mind you, this is a lot of food ...

I've walked past but never ate there - must try it soon. Looks interesting (except for drinks served in Mason jars...not a fan). Any vegetarian dishes?

I think they've got one main dish that's vegetarian (they're pretty much meat people).
