What's good on St-Hubert street

sweettoothMTL Jun 4, 2013 10:30 AM

I’m going to see a show at Petit Medley on St-Hubert (corner bellechasse) with some coworkers, so we want to go straight from work, and have dinner and a few beers around there. What’s good around St-Hubert. Ideally, the place has outdoor seating if it’s nice. Or alternatively, give me two options, one to eat outside, and one inside? All I can think of is Vice Versa which has a nice beer choice and decent food, outdoor and indoor seating (with the new space). But it’s a good 15 minutes walk away. I see Petit Medley has food, is it decent? That could be simpler.

    I don't think you'll find a nice terrace on the Plaza, but what about Fixe right below Bellechasse? It was a café before but they're now more of a bistro. I've never been but there was a good review in the Gazette: http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/food-wine/Sarah+Musgrave+Casual+Dining+review+Fixe/8227991/story.html

    Take a look at the menu here if that's something you could like : https://www.facebook.com/fixecafebistro

    Also not far on Beaubien, Bistro Unique http://www.bistrounique.com/. Simple italian food and there's a terrace.

        pho tai ho on st denis and beaubien is a good bet
        or there is itacate a few blocks further west

          Across the street from Pho Tay Ho on St-Denis is Y Lan, also an interesting Vietnamese place, and it is a byow. Itacate and even Mogador are getting a bit far afield.

          I tend to think that most of the potentially interesting places around there are on the side streets.

          I haven't read any recent reviews of Petit Medley; in an earlier incarnation it was mostly a resto-bar.

          Here is the menu: http://lepetitmedley.ca/bar_lounge/ (you may have to click on "menu repas and tapas" within this category, as I did).

          Oh dear, they include poutine as a "tapa". But you could do worse than the plate of organic sausages from Charlevoix...

          I don't know anyone who has eaten there (I live nearby , in Petite-Italie). And have no interest in doing so... Will try to think of places so you have a fun evening!

          There's always Elio Pizzeria, on Bellechasse just west of St-Denis. Decent old-school type pizza joint with a small terrasse.

            There's a Portuguese place called Casa Alentejo at 5938 St-Hubert. Can't vouch for the ambiance -- I've only had takeout so far -- but the chicken is very good and I assume/hope that bodes well for everything else.

              I second the recommendation for Casa Alentejo's chicken. Their fries are also good. I've not eaten in the dining room either, but it looks nice enough.

                I haven't been in, but I'm sure the dining room is fine.

              How about Nacho Libre, on Beaubien? Fun place for drinkS and basic food. Can anyone comment on the food?

                I just posted for a seafood/fish place called Espadon @ 7505 St Hubert, (north of jean Talon).....great value/quality.....would also consider Fixe cafe south of Petit Medley, across the street....good creative fare.....I also appreciate Casa Alantejo...again good quality and value. One more, on the way to Espadon is Viva Mexico, ...solid young chef, with good quality, and generous portions.
