Mimi La Nuit – New Bar & Restaurant in Old Montreal

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! 🙂

Rosewood – Bar & Restaurant with Rock & Roll

Rosewood is a new bar & restaurant in old Montreal, right next to Joverse. The menu is actually quite relaxed with mostly burgers, chicken wings and salad. It’s something I can enjoy in T-shirt and jeans. But probably due to the location, most of the guests are still dressed quite well, maybe too well for picking up burgers and bite into them with full force.

I tried the Rosewood BBQ chicken wings, and watermelon spritz. Nothing to write home about, but good enough to make me lick the fingers.

The most impressive part of Rosewood is definitely the music! The owner is rock star Jonas Tomalty, from Montreal. And the playlist ranges from classic rock to contemporary hits. We were sitting in our seats and amazed with the wonderful music! Too bad they don’t have a dance floor. 😦 We were itching to groove to the beats! (It might be the cocktail talking.)

The music is a bit loud and you’ll need to yell a bit for your friends to hear you. But it’s great if you are not in there for sophisticated conversations and just want to enjoy some rock music and a drink. Their bar selection is quite extensive and I’m sure you can find what you fancy!
