Does anyone remember the name of the seafood restaurant that used to be on Drummond (or was it Stanley) near de Maisonneuve? Thanks

    1. I remember one right on the corner of de Maisonneuve, I'm thinking Drummond too but maybe Stanley. Definitely on the west side of one of those streets. The name of it is at the tip of my tongue, I remember walking in there looking for a summer job (late 80s/early 90s), it was quite dark in there IIRC.

      Desjardins doesn't ring a bell, unless there was another seafood place, it didn't seem like the fanciest place. More Red Lobster than Milos decor. :)

      1. Did it have big windows and you walked up the side to get to the entrance? If yes then it was Desjardins...but Jerk is right this one was fancy but I am going back to the late 70's early 80's that I remember it

          The one I'm thinking of was called La Poissonnerie, located on the corner of Stanley.

            Yes that was the name JerkPork, Thank you!

        2. There was a Seafood Restaurant on the SW corner of Stanley and DeMaisoneuve the name escapes me. It was owned by French Chef Francois Keller. Unfortunately he went bust in and around 1977 and moved to NYC to open the Sea Grill in Rockefeller Center.He had a great restaurant (for the time) here in Montreal.He is now Executive Chef at a Ritz Carleton Hotel somewhere in the USA.

          1. yeggy,

            If memory serves me correctly the place you're referring to was called the Vieux Pecheur and was decorated inside with barnwood.

            They had bar section as well as a restaurant section in the rear.....good seafood at reasonable prices, however, it's closed now.
