Jewish Eats in Montreal
Montreal is home to a rich lode of Jewish food (kosher and not), ranging from the city’s unique and justly famous bagels (at St. Viateur) to Canada’s own version of pastrami, known as smoked meat, served in raffish deli style at Schwartz’s. You’ll find superb babkas and ruggelah at Boulangerie Cheskie’s, and and one of the finest steak dinners in North America at Moishes, where side dishes include marvelous latkes (potato pancakes) and meals begin with chopped liver or herring in cream sauce. No culinary visit to La Métropole would be complete without a baloney & salami sandwich at Wilensky’s Light Lunch and a kitchen sink “Mish Mash” omelet at Beauty’s Luncheonette.
Moishe's is Montreal's high-end steak house with a Jewish accent. Side a gorgeous filet mignon with latkes (potato pancakes) or twice baked Monte Carlo potato.
