As we flip the calendar over to summer, keep these brand new spots on your radar from last season.

Here’s a quick roundup of some tasty Montreal restaurants that set up roots across the island over the past couple of months.

Aqua Farina recently opened not just one but two restaurants — one in Old Montreal and the other in Monkland Village.

Here, you can make a customizable pasta dish to really make your own work of art, or choose from the chef’s creations. And be sure not to miss out on the antipasti either.

Don’t be confused by the name — this cute, little spot that just opened in Saint-Henri packs big-time flavour.

While this restaurant may be known for its steak frites, you won’t be disappointed by anything on the menu.

Phone: 514-419-5222


From the team behind Le Speakeasy comes Vandale, a new, cool, hip place with gourmet food and drinks set in a colourful, spunky setting. Like the art on the walls? As the name suggests, the space was “vandalized” by local Montreal talent.
