Chef Michael Moffat and Stephen Beckta’s new spot: Gezellig

It is a matter of general consensus that Chef Michael Moffat and Stephen Beckta’s establishments Beckta and Play are amongst the very best in Ottawa. We caught up with the city’s power couple a few weeks after the opening of their newest venture Gezellig, their “neighbourhood” restaurant located in Ottawa’s Westboro Village.

And for those of you wondering… Gezellig (gah-zell-ig) is a Dutch adjective for convivial, cosy, or nice atmosphere, but also belonging, general togetherness, or time spent with loved ones

This week we have a blether with the affable Chef Moffat in the vestibule of Gezellig at the end of yet another busy service.
