Continental grill from chef Paul Toussaint

The menu here is a continental journey through the barbecue techniques of two hemispheres, combining North, Central, and South America: Starting up north with spit-roasted méchoui and classic Montréal smoked meat, it goes through the United States, and ends with specialties and delicacies like Caribbean jerk, Argentinian asado, and Brazilian churrasco.

Chef Frédéric St-Aubin’s one-two punch of both traditional and seasonal ingredients at Moleskine makes us do a double take at just how fresh, comforting and fun the dishes are.

Portuguese chicken, poutine and natas

From our first taste of the Ferreira family’s Portuguese chicken coming hot off its smoking grills when it opened in 2016 to every delicious bite today, this fine-tuned churrascaria has consistently delivered quality time and again.

Signature dishes: Grilled chicken and chicken poutine


Spanish tapas tavern

Ibéricos is a taste of Spain. From Caracas to San Sebastien to Montreal, Chef Haissam Souki Tamayo has worked in Michelin-star restaurants and alongside legendary chefs to hone his authentic mix of Spanish tradition and local Quebec produce. A sumptuous paella brimming with flavours—famous for the golden brown crust of rice that forms on the bottom of the pan—a calamari sandwich to satisfy the biggest seafood addict and a Basque cheesecake (caramelized on top with a rich, ultra-creamy interior) that will leave you with cravings days.

Signature dish: Paella


Montrealers have been worshipping at the altar of this family-run sandwicheria since it opened in 2018. The lip-smacking magic happens when southern Italian recipes that hail back three generations meet Philly-style hoagies bursting with homemade ingredients—right down to the house burrata, hand-cut chips and fresh basil picked from the garden. It only takes one bite to see why these sandwiches have a cult following.

Signature dish: the Porcetta sandwich

As much as we love mixology, sometimes nothing can beat a glass of beer, and that’s why we’ve put together a range of Québécois microbreweries—plus a couple of fancy imports—for you to knock back. Here's where you want to grab a pint brewed by spots like Dieu du Ciel, Archibald, Microbrasserie de Charlevoix and Pit Caribou, as well as some imports to try out. Be sure to ask for a flight!

Whether you’re the designated driver, having a sober month, or just don't want to drink, we got you. Instead of opting for a glass of water, we’ve put together a menu of alcohol-free drinks that bring together some stellar flavors, like the Yuzu Smash with yuzu, cucumber and lime, the Zingi made with ginger soda, strawberry and lime, a range of flavors for homemade sodas or “pints” of killer kombucha.
