Saturday Late Lunch

We are looking for a spot that takes reservations for a late lunch (around 1:30 PM or so), preferrably within walking distance of Jean Talon Market. We are willing to go further afield too. We've tried Le Meac, Lawrence, and Reservoir in the past and have very much enjoyed them. Any recommendations? We are open to pretty much any type of cuisine. Thanks very much in advance.

  1. Around the market :

    Vinizza (haven't been, but my parents did, and they liked it).
    The pub just next door (haven't tried it yet).
    Le Petit Alep just outside the Market.

    Further away, I'm certain there are restaurants on St-Laurent that will be still open, but I've got no clue which one is the best.

    1. re: Maximilien

      Thanks for the suggestions. I've always wanted to try Petit Alep, and I keep forgetting that it's right by MJT. Next trip for sure! This trip, we've decided to go back to Lemeac - it's always been good and by going later, we can order off the regular menu. Cheers!

    2. Try La Carreta, it's a few blocks away. It serves Salvadorian food, which is like nothing you've seen elsewhere. It's family owned, and is usually busy on the weekends. They're pretty much open all day and night on the weekends.

      Try the pupusas with their tomato sauce and unique cole slaw.
