Blackie Brings Upscale Downtown Dining to Ottawa West with NEXT

Labneh Board
Labneh Cream Cheese with Baguette, Pickled Okra, Olives and Roasted Pepper

Blackie has ventured out to Ottawa West to bring some oomph into the Stittsville area. A rapidly developing part of the city, Stittsville is short of an upscale restaurant that isn't Italian.

Situated in the same building as the former Isaac's restaurant, NEXT is pretty far West...even for the Kanata peeps. Blackie, with partner Tim Snelling, is doing more than just bringing a nice big shiny new restaurant to Stittsville. NEXT also offers catering, banquet, meeting and take home services, and they can do it all. The dining room holds 80-seats, with an additional 4 rooms that can hold between 50-165 people.

If you like variety, you are in luck. The menu is a bit schizophrenic. We had charcuterie, Asian, British and Lebanese all in one meal. While it was nice to try so many different types of dishes, the menu lacked a unifying element.

The Seed to Sausage charcuterie board of chorizo, lomo, salami, eggplant jam, cumin pickled onions, olives and jalapenos was a favorite.

The labneh board (title picture) with baguette, pickled okra olives and roasted peppers was a beautiful dish but it could have used a bit more labneh for the amount of bread served.

Blackie's chicken is the chef's signature dish, a westernized version of General Tao's chicken.
