Mimi La Nuit is a new bar & restaurant opened at the old location of Le Piano Rouge. The whole place is renovated is a very cool spot to spend a night. It’s mainly a bar with delicious cocktails and nice wine selection. Even though food is not their main focus, the few dishes we have tried are innovative and delicious. The portions are bigger than I have expected as well!
Their oysters are served with tiny squeeze bottles of vodka (yes, it’s real vodka! Not as strong as your regular shots but you can definitely feel the drops you put on the oyster), fresh lemon juice and home made hot sauce. There’s also a sauce that you can serve with the little lime slice spoons. Very cute!
The lamb collar taco is probably my favorite. It’s served with chucks of lamb, sauce which tastes like mustard based, coleslaw and soft warm tortillas. I enjoyed the process of assembling my own tacos. The lamb meat fell off the bone and the coleslaw really brought out the taste of the whole dish.
If you are looking for a nice night out in Old Montreal, I’d definitely recommend a visit to Mimi La Nuit. They are in the process of renovating the second floor as well and it will be a dance floor/event venue. Look forward to that! 🙂
