Autumnal Pleasures

Here are five restaurants to visit in the greater Montreal area. Spoil yourself by visiting these must-see restaurants in the region.

2 chemin de la Grande-Côte, Rosemère / restaurantpiatti.ca

After being closed for several months, this popular North Shore restaurant is back with a brand new decor. Located on the shore of the Rivière des Mille Îles, Piatti has undergone a veritable renaissance. The historical charm of the building—the summer home of former Prime Minister Robert Laird Borden—and the renovated interior now provide an ideal setting for the contemporary Italian cuisine of Chef Pierre-Jonathan Dutremble. Whether for a business lunch, an intimate supper, or a meal among friends, if you want to taste passion in every bite, Piatti has been a destination of choice since 2008. The guiding principle here is simplicity: with a focus on the best local products and Italian imports, the menu features pizza, pasta, meat, and fish in recipes that change along with the seasons. The inspired dishes will charm your taste buds, the imported wines will introduce you to primo Italian vintages, and the warm reception will complete your dining experience. For an Italian-style evening you will not soon forget!

530 boulevard des Promenades, Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville /

Montréal’s South Shore now has a wine bar worthy of the name! Since opening in the summer of 2021, Théophile has been packed, thanks to its custom concept. In the kitchen, Chef Robin Filteau Boucher tickles the palate with local market products, prepared to perfection as only he can. Some must-haves are his fresh homemade lobster pasta, house ricotta, and beef carpaccio with truffle: paradise on a plate! The eclectic selection of wines is a delight with appellations from the four corners of the earth—some classic, some revelatory. As for mixed drinks, cocktail aficionados will enjoy the sophisticated recipes and impeccable presentation. For an upbeat evening, try one of the themed evenings with DJ. At any time, it is the ideal place to relax in an attractive modern decor after a long day at the office. Try it; you will like it!


1234 avenue du Mont-Royal Est, Montréal (Plateau) / rougegorge.ca

Wine lovers are flocking to Rouge Gorge, a popular wine bar in the Plateau that has been going strong since opening in March 2015. The reason? An impeccable selection of wines from around the globe (by the glass or for tasting) and gourmet small plates—executed with panache by Chef André Médina—that are ideal for sharing. The warm atmosphere simply adds to the overall experience, which can be summed up as follows: a relaxed evening of good food and good wine. To top it all off, check out Le Royal, the cozy, refined cocktail bar located right next door. Pleasure guaranteed!

4847 rue Wellington, Montréal (Verdun) / paname.ca

Rediscover French classics with a Quebec twist at this new southwest Montréal bistro that taps into the rhythm of the seasons. Inspired by French cuisine, the menu at Paname turns a spotlight on local Quebec products, taking diners on a culinary journey without leaving the city. The ambience is welcoming, the service, unpretentious, and, with its round tables, black and white floor tiles and impressive central bar, the decor is that of a typical French bistro. Developed by Raphaël Leclerc-Gileau (formerly of Bouillon Bilk) and his team, the menu delights with venison tataki, marinated beets, chicken liver mousse, grey oyster mushrooms, and fish in butter sauce. There are numerous vegetarian and vegan options as well. In short, no need to travel overseas to enjoy the ultimate Paris bistro experience!


465 rue McGill, Montréal / tableeclicquot.com

Veuve Clicquot is all about the sun in 2022, as the venerable champagne house celebrates 250 years of expertise, innovation, and the art of living. Much more than an anniversary, this landmark date is an ode to the joy and optimism of a future as bright as the iconic yellow on Veuve Clicquot labels. To mark this event, Montrealers are invited to take part in a unique culinary experience, entitled La tablée éphémère X Veuve Clicquot. Until September 25, the terrace of 465 rue McGill, Montréal, will be transformed into a beacon of solar energy as it welcomes local chefs (Francis Blais from Menu Extra, Theo Lerikos of Tuck Shop, Danny Smiles of the Willow Inn and Alex Cohen from Arthurs) to nourish guests with perfect pairings of food and champagne for dinner or Sunday brunch. The event is also an opportunity to give back to the community since Veuve Clicquot has promised to donate a minimum of $10,000 to La Tablée des Chefs, a charity that has been fighting food insecurity for over 20 years. • Reservations starting August 24.
