NDG’s Monkland Village is one of Montreal’s trendiest areas. The borough has long been considered the heart of Anglophone culture in Montreal, and the area surrounding Monkland Avenue is one of the most desirable spots to live in the entire city. While the numerous boutiques, shops, and bars make this a fun place to be, particularly during the summertime when the terraces are open, and the Monkland Street Fair is on, year-round it’s also home to some of the best restaurants in town.
Here are five of the best:
Lucille’s Oyster Dive
Recently moved just a few steps away from its original location, Lucille’s is arguably the area’s most famous restaurant. Named after blues great B.B King’s famous guitar, Lucille’s is your destination for premium seafood. With East and West Coast Oyster selections that change daily, lobster rolls, fish & chips and more – this is a restaurant that’ll have you coming back again and again. Make sure to try their famous Seafood Bloody Caesar, containing an oyster, shrimp, clam and a crab leg.
Local 75 Bistro Pub
Your classic neighbourhood pub, Local 75’s ever-changing menu is its signature, with sumptuous specialties like their famous burgers, Cordon Bleu chicken, baby back ribs, seasoned fries and jerk chicken wings. Plus – lunch comes with a free pint!
Le Petit Tokebi
One of the more under-the-radar picks, Le Petit Tokebi is among the best Korean eateries in town, with table-top Hibachi, Korean BBQ, traditional bibimbap dishes served in heated bowls, and a wide selection of Korean drinks, including hearty bottles of Soju. What’s extra nice about this place is how each table is in its own designated mini-area, giving you privacy and making it a great date spot.
A cozy-casual Italian restaurant, from the photo of Dean Martin eating spaghetti outside to the reasonably priced menu, this is a favourite for many in the area. What’s great about this place is the fact that, if you like the food, you can buy their packaged sauces and fresh pasta as part of your groceries and make your own feast!
A neighbourhood fixture, with their sign being one of the most instantly recognizable sights in the village, Monkland Taverne serves up a diverse menu in a cool retro atmosphere. They have seasonal daily menus, plus old favorites like their famous mac & cheese with truffle oil. Their steaks and market fresh seafood are also to die for.
