Julieta Cuisine Latine

Has anyone tried this recent addition to Montreal's latin restaurants? I think it opened around Nov 2011. I didn't find a website, but they do have a facebook page with plenty of fabulous looking pictures.

      There is a very good review in Voir as well as the other positive ones posted.

      Looks rather refined as well as tiny and cute (it is the former Itacate location). Keeping eyes peeled for it to go BYOW!

      1. re: lagatta

        Well, I was too, but reading the Voir review I got the feeling they might have changed their mind and forgone the BYO option. Towards the end, the review says: ''La liste des vins est minimaliste, mais on nous le promet, ça va s’étoffer!'' If the restaurant is saying they'll improve the wine list, doesn't look like they are waiting on their BYO license. Just an impression, I may very well be wrong.

            I was there last night. They carry 4 whites, 4 reds, and Red Stripe Beer. Thumbs up (not me personally but from others) for the Fumé Blanc and the Argentinian Malbec.

      2. Had dinner there, last night. We loved it. The food is prepared with a lot of care, the flavours are bright and the presentations are lovely. We were so intrigued by the apps, that we ended up ordering four of them plus both soups on the menu and shared everything. Standouts were the chupe Peruano, the cachapa with huitlacoche and the scallops. The only dish that didn't really do it for us was the bavette arepa. The meat tasted great and the arepa was fine, but it just lacked a little something to counterpoint the meatiness of the filling. Dessert was an arroz con dos leches with a beet reduction and topped with a lulo(I think) sorbet. It wasn't too sweet and had a nice tang – A lovely way to end the meal.

        I think this place is really worth a try. There's some real hard work and talent going into the dishes. And once they get their BYOB license, it will be one of the better deals in town.

        1. We ate there last night and I have to echo SnackHappy about the talent going into the dishes we ordered. We had the salmon ceviche and the cachapa as appetizers. Have to say the ceviché was outstanding. Just the right amount of acidity and sauce. We followed that with a spicy soup of shrimp and coconut milk. The heat and the coconut were perfectly balanced. Last but not least was a vegetarian quisotto that the chef improvised for us from another item on the menu. Quinoa used as a risotto base was something new for me, but a very creative and sucessful base for sauted veggies she combined with arugala to finish the dish.

          To me, this is a place that deserves to be noticed and we will definately be heading back in the near future.

          1. Had a great brunch at Julieta, yesterday. The menu went from a selection of arepas to full plates including huevos rancheros, cachapas with ham and cheese and a big plate of eggs, blood pudding, papas bravas and corn salsa called the Andino.

            The plates were not only beautiful, they were also delicious. All four of our group were very happy with their meals and the prices were very reasonable.

            I strongly urge chowhounds to go check this place out. Juleta should be a lot busier than it is. It's high quality food at very decent prices. There's no reason it shouldn't be full every night of the week.

              Went for brunch today and had a great experience. The food was hot, fresh and the portion was generous. Service is very friendly and informative. Spotless restaurant, good music. I loved it and will return with friends for dinner!

            2. Went a couple of weeks back. We really really liked it. Same as others the cerviche was amazing. Hostess/owner had a great sense of humor to. I will def go back.
