  1. Okay. Could you elaborate a little bit on the food and how great it is? Presumably they serve oysters, but what else? Are they open for lunch?

      It was reviewed by Sarah Musgrave in the Gazoo 2-3 weeks ago.

        Thanks I'll go look at it.

            Thanks I just read the review. I would love to check it out! Will report back if we do.

              OMG. Clam chowder poutine. They don't say whether it's New England or Manhattan-style, though Emmenthal would argue for the former. I think I'm going to be ill...

                Couldn't be worse than the seafood poutine at feu Ail Y'ail Y'ail, which AFAIC was a terrible waste of seafood.

                1. re: carswell

                  Ms. Musgrave indicates the chowder has "an excellent cream-to-clam ration". (Perhaps she meant ratio.) I take that to mean New England style chowder. Funny, I asked specifically about the Chowder Poutine earlier and it looks like the Moderators deleted my post. Maybe they thought I was kidding. :)

        2. Catherine Macpherson in this weeks Hour gives Oyster Shack a less glowing review than the one in the gazoo.

          Kinda confirms my fears about the place, though.

            Howdy!

            But she also recommended Le Mondial Gourmand on the radio this week.

            Wouldn't that make her review sort of like a double negative?

          2. What other new (fall) restaurants have recently opened in Montreal that are noteworthy?

              HI,

              This thread is pretty comprehensive. Restaurant Openings - 2008:
