Starting this month you can bring your own bottle of wine to NeXT restaurant from Mondays to Wednesdays.
“It’s an incentive to get people out to NeXT. Monday thrrough Wednesdays are softer than Thursday through Fridays. It‘s a marketing investment to get people who know my craft to come on a odd night,” says owner and chef Michael Blackie.
Ontario has allowed BYOW in restaurants since the mid-2000’s, but there aren’t many restaurants actually offer the service. Blackie believes NeXT is the first restaurant in Stittsville to offer BYOW.
“I think the industry will keep an eye on my place see the social media comments and reaction… I know pretty much everyone in Ottawa dining scene and we all talk so only time will tell,” he says.
