Two Ottawa restaurants have cracked OpenTable’s list of Canada’s best 100 restaurants for outdoor dining.

Bar Lupulus, a craft beer and natural wine bar on Wellington Street West, has a small patio out front and a larger back patio.

Sixty-two of the restaurants on the list are in Ontario. Twenty-one are in B.C., 15 are in Alberta and two are in Quebec.
