Good eats near Pantages Hotel
I would like to have some recs for a Friday night late dinner (after 9 pm) near the Pantages Hotel, preferably, less than a 15 min walk. I'm open to all types of food as long as it is good, but I do prefer more ''ethnic'' dining. Budget is not an issue and bonus points if it's something that's not easily available in my hometown Montreal.
Went here recently:
It's on Yonge St, right around the corner. Loved the manakeesh, but wasn't too impressed with their shawarma/shish-tawouk. The building itself is gorgeous. A completely gutted and renovated, three level warehouse from 1868.
I also recommend Harlem. As for Paramount, other than the fresh pita, it's quite average for middle eastern food. Especially given the typical quality in Montreal.
Here are some other ideas:
Are there decent ramen places in Montreal? If not, then Kenzo Ramen is good for a casual option. It's on Dundas just west of Bay St. They stay open until 10pm.
For a bit more of a hipper, happening atmosphere, there's Guu Izakaya on Church just north of Gerard. It's open until midnight so might be a better option timewise. But can be extremely busy and they don't take reservations.
The Gabardine is a very new restaurant. Comfort food with a more upscale vibe. They're also open until 10pm. They'll be quite busy so best to call to see if they have reservations.
