The Hottest New Restaurants in Montreal, July 2021
More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends and family of Eater have one question: Where should I eat right now? That’s where the Eater Heatmap has customarily come into play, highlighting newcomers that show particular promise and the spots crowds are flocking to at the moment.
This month’s map welcomes NDG newcomer Café Entre-Deux, Laotian restaurant Sep Lai, and the latest venture from restaurateur Dany Bolduc: La Sobremesa. At the same time, we must also bid farewell to two Outremont haunts, Tinc Set and Uluwatu — both are still great options, worthy of your patronage.
1. Café Entre-Deux
This trim Sherbrooke Street West newcomer is a coffee-and-sandwich shop by day and wine bar with a polished food and drink menu by night. Options include fried spelt with a garlic confit emulsion, sea bass crudo with green apples and lacto-fermented cucumber, and seared pork with braised fennel and apple puree. Expect a stylish interior achieved by layering chevron wood flooring, deep green marble counters, and 1970s-style rattan seating.
