The best place for smoked meat

  • t

I'll be in Montreal this weekend and want to make sure I try the smoked meat. Any suggestions as to where the best place to get it might be?

  1. Ben's has very delicious smoked meat.The waiter was very friendly too.

      Without any doubt, the best place is Schwartz on North St Laurent street.The meat is superb!! I have not been there in a couple of years, but I try to make a pilgrimage at that temple of smoked meat whenever I am in town.

        Schwartz's... for the authentic smoked meat...

        1. Another vote for Schwartz's on St. Laurent..service is in the brusque New York style.

            Can someone tell me whatever happened to Dunn's Delicatessen?

            I read on a website that it is now defunct.

            When did it close? And why? Last time I ate there in the Fall of 1997 it seemed to be doing its usual good business.

            I first ate there in 1986 and revisited several times over the next decade. Although there are other places that serve better viande fume, this was a major Montreal institution for me...
