Downtown Ottawa Event Space's 'Winterlude' Dinner Whets Appetites

Revolving Event Space Opens for Exclusive 'Summit of Winterlude' Celebration

OTTAWA--(Marketwire - Feb 6, 2012) - Utilizing the unique atmosphere of one of the premier downtown Ottawa event venues, Winterlude has arranged an exclusive dining opportunity as part of its February celebration.

Celebrating the joys of winter, this annual event is packed with family activities and the Summit of Winterlude Dinner is no exception, welcoming families as part of the festival's Family Day observance on Monday, February 20, 2012. Held in the Summit, our revolving event space atop the Ottawa Marriott Hotel, this Ottawa luxury hotel's revolving dining room will open its doors on the hotel's 29th floor for Winterlude's special one-night event, serving up a five-course meal prepared by accomplished, award-winning Executive Chef Mark Steele.

Formerly operating as the favoured Merlot Rooftop Grill, this revolving banquet room has been closed as a public restaurant since 2010, but in celebration of Winterlude, this sophisticated Rideau Canal hotel will open its doors for the occasion to serve up a spectacular menu, including Angus beef tenderloin, pan seared halibut, scallops "two ways" and a sumptuous "beaver tail" mille feuille for desert, beginning at 6 p.m. Tickets for this exclusive event are $169.24 per person, including tax, gratuity and service fee.
