One of the best things about working with Claude Julien and Peter Chiarelli is that they are both Ottawa natives who know their way around town. So last night, upon their previous recommendation, a group of us headed for some top-shelf Italian at Giovanni's, where fellow Ottawan Aaron Ward has his picture on the wall (team photo of the 2005-06 Hurricanes).

Was very pleased after we split some calamari and bruschetta apps. Even more satisfied after inhaling my usual Giovanni's fare: pappardelle with prosciutto and oyster mushrooms in a cream sauce.

For lunch today, went with the always solid Sweetwater's, an aboriginal bistro downtown. Went with a duck and goose paella. Interesting. But the soup was even better -- spicy chicken with peanuts and wild rice. Need some insulation on a chilly day (12 Fahrenheit).
