A lovely lunch hosted by Monosh. Food was delicious and so was the wine! Lamb burger, French onion soup and quinoa salad are all recommended.

Seven nights a week, local bands take the stage at Montreal's hottest Jazz bar and bistro. Modavie's spirited setting sets the scene for a night of great tunes, top dining and generous pastis toasting. The bistro's far-reaching wine menu hits just the right notes and helps round off succulent lamb, fish, beef and inspired pasta dishes.
