OTTAWA — The Madisons New York Grill & Bar franchise is bringing its fine-dining experience to Canada. Opening in time for the spring season, Madisons Ottawa is the first Canadian outlet for the brand.
The freshly redesigned décor boasts a more modern feel, combining the chain’s existing sophisticated look with the simplicity of contemporary design. In an effort to retain design consistency across its existing locations, Madisons will be renovating all of its restaurants over the next 18 months.
Menu offerings include the Manhattan burger with thick-cut double-smoked bacon, blue cheese, arugula and ranch dressing ($17); Soho chicken breast, topped with grilled zucchini, red pepper, goat cheese and jardiniere sauce ($21); and seared sushi-grade tuna steak served with ginger-lime sauce and garnished with mango salsa ($29).
Madisons’ Canadian expansion plans include two new restaurant openings per year in Ontario for the next five years.
