OTTAWA — The team at CAA North and East Ontario has named four restaurants in Ottawa as CAA/AAA Four-Diamond-Award honourees this year.
Atelier, Beckta Dining & Wine Bar, e18hteen and Wilfrid’s Restaurant all earned the Four-Diamond distinction following a rigorous evaluation that included anonymous dining by an experienced CAA/AAA inspector. It also included a review by a panel of experts.
“It’s truly an honour to have received this distinction not just this year, but for the past 15 years,” says Stephen Beckta, owner of Beckta Dining & Wine — the longest-running recipient of the Four-Diamond award in Ottawa. “It means that the efforts of our staff to provide the best possible dining experience have not gone unnoticed. I am especially proud to receive this distinction as the CAA/AAA selection process is so rigorous and the standards are so high within the fine-dining world.”
Based on a distinctive fine-dining experience, creative preparations and an upscale ambience, the Ottawa-area restaurants were recognized for elevating the “gastronomic scene in Ottawa and the wider region.”
“CAA NEO is pleased to recognize these four deserving restaurants as Four Diamond establishments,” says Christina Hlusko, president and CEO of CAA North & East Ontario. “To maintain the exceptional standards required for this rating on a daily basis is an outstanding achievement.”
