good vietnamese restaurant in Ottawa

restaurant called Saigon Pho 252 bank street, ottawa Ont. tel 615 252 0888

we dropped in by chance and were astonished by the variety available. We ate their special spring rolls and they were special- and then ate 1 variety each of theiur several pho soups. We ordered
medium bowls but couldn't come close to finishing them. The restaurant is in downtown ottawa, very near the church which houses chamber music concerts during the festival.

wishing well restaurant in wilton near saratoga, N Y

Wishing Well Restaurant in Wilton provided us a traditional American meal with FRESH ingredients, simply prepared and beautifully presented. A beautiful sliced tomato with balsamic vinegar and olive oil beside it greeted us as we sat down. We started with a gazpacho full of small dices of cucumber, scallions and tomato- wonderful, and a dish of stuffed breaded squash flowers. I ate a remarkably good dish of calves liver, perfectly cooked, soft and scrumptious.And with it, an ear of local corn- early in July! An enormous and delicious salad accompanied this. We ate every bit of everything so that we had no room for desert. However the manager handed us each a large chocolate truffle as we left.
Everyone was pleasant, helpful- and we enjoyed the meal immensely.
This restaurant is about 10 miles from downtown Saratoga, reasonably priced and uncommonly good.
