Joe Beef

This acclaimed Old Montreal restaurant and bar serves steaks and seafood classics in the heart of Little Burgundy. Named in honour of Joe Beef, an Irish-born Montreal tavern owner and working-class hero in the 19th century, the acclaimed eatery opened in late 2005 as a 30-seat restaurant. As its popularity grew, the restaurant expanded to 75 seats in 2011 and was selected as the 81st best restaurant in the world in 2016 by 50 World's Best Restaurants. Sourcing much of its produce from the historic Atwater Market nearby, menus and wine lists are written on chalkboards. In the kitchen, co-founders, chefs and cookbook authors David McMillan and Frédéric Morin whip up decadent food rooted in French market cuisine and techniques. Famous for their lobster pasta, fans also look for dishes like eel nuggets; foie gras sandwiches with the foie as the bread; pâté en croute with moist chunks of rabbit; Dover sole in celeriac cream with Perigord truffle; and seared sweetbreads wrapped in crisp bacon and dressed with lobster sauce. The patio setting beside the vegetable garden and trout pond is a magical spot to sup and sip the evening away.
