For The Family
Owners Rick Boland (your host with the most) and Natalie Aucoin (the baker & the brains) first opened the doors to The Foolish Chicken in June 2007, in the charming neighbourhood of Hintonburg, Ottawa.
After fourteen years of serving up delicious food at their 79 Holland Avenue location, The Foolish Chicken uprooted and re-hatched in March 2021, to the well-known Ottawa neighbourhood of Little Italy. Known for the cozy atmosphere, friendly service, delicious chicken & ribs, mouth-watering cheesecakes and a wide array gluten free menu items, The Foolish Chicken has become a prominent name in the Ottawa restaurant scene, achieving many accolades.
In 2009 they were awarded the Winner of “More than Just Desserts”. In 2020 they were voted as “Ottawa’s Best Chicken or Wings” by Ottawa Life Magazine & in 2021 they were voted as “Ottawa’s Best Gluten Free Menu” by Faces Magazine
The Foolish Chicken is the perfect place for all kinds of dinner outings from date night to catching up with friends or bring the whole family for an affordable and filling dinner out!
When you're there, don’t forget to check out the “Eye-popping” local art showcased in the restaurant (featuring works by Alison Fowler & Cor Beattie).
