Restaurants in Montréal, QC

Montreal is home to a rich lode of Jewish food (kosher and not), ranging from the city’s unique and justly famous bagels to its own version of pastrami, known as smoked meat. Just up the street from Schwartz’s, which is Smoked-Meat Central, you’ll find one of the finest steak dinners in North America at Moishe’s, where side dishes include marvelous latkes (potato pancakes) and meals begin with chopped liver or herring in cream sauce. Moishe’s also serves a culinary oxymoron: high-end poutine, which is topped not just with gravy, but with slices of charcoal-cooked filet mignon. Au Pied de Cochon’s poutine goes even further by topping the French fries and cheese curds with foie gras sauce and pate. 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.
