Nestled in ARC The.Hotel, ARC Lounge is a chic gem. This downtown restaurant manages to be both sleek and cozy, and is the perfect place for a business meeting over lunch (it’s also a go-to for a romantic dinner or after-work drinks). Known for fresh and local seasonal menus that blend sophistication and creativity, this is a place that is generating increasing buzz. Head over in the morning and order the Arc French Toast — oat and cinnamon crusted cranberry focaccia with maple syrup and orange butter — for a nice wake-up call. 140 Slater St., 613-238-9998.
