Kuu Bistro is a new Japanese Izakaya in downtown Montreal. They have the Japanese tapas style dishes, sushi rolls, and oysters.
A bit different from Imadake, the decor is very airy and bright with floor to ceiling windows looking out into Square Philippe. There’s also a second floor that can be a great private party venue.
The food is absolutely fresh and delicious. My favorite dishes would be the white fish carpaccio, and grilled miso black cod. The white fish carpaccio is lightly grilled on the outside and dipped in a rich sauce with different spices. I’ve always loved black cod. It’s a slightly fattier fish and the miso complement the taste very well.
For people who like sushi rolls ,they also have a fairly large selection of makis to choose from. Kuu lollipop is wrapped with cucumbers, very refreshing with tasty sauce to go with it.
They have different types of oysters on the menu as well, which is pretty rare for Japanese restaurants in Montreal.
I’ll definitely go back to sample the other half of the menu!
