- Hungry? How about something very Canadian and very unique? I paid a visit to Sweetgrass Aboriginal Bistro, 108 Murray St. in the historic Byward Market neighborhood. Menu highlights are the Grilled Tatonka (Bison), Pan Roasted White Bass, Bistro Buffalo Burger and the Crispy Duck Leg. Lunch and dinner items follow the ancient paths of North America's Aboriginal peoples. Even though the vibe is very casual, the dining room adds a touch of class with white table cloths and walls decorated in native art.
