Chez Nick’s MontrealPosted By Jennifer Ho Jun 20 2011 · 0 comments · Dining Out, Westmount
Almost every time I have gone to Chez Nick’s there has been a line up backing the place up from the inside out. This time, perhaps because it was a Monday, there was less foot traffic and we were able to get a spot immediately. One of the most popular diners in the Westmount area, Chez Nick’s is busy chiefly because of its historical past (founded in 1920) as well as its Kosher friendly menu options – the restaurant serves traditional food for a higher than traditional price. But that’s a given, considering the location in which it is.
I had the boccocino sandwich with basil, tomatoes and alfalfa on black Russian bread. It tasted fine – nothing spectacular. It is exactly as it looks in the photograph; the description on the menu makes it seem more appetizing than it really is. My friend ordered the portobello salad (vegan/vegetarian option) which she polished off easily. The waitress actually forget to give her the accompanying side of bread – but she remedied this immediately after we alerted her. Chez Nick’s is an average brunch/lunch joint that is more hype and novelty than anything. Not a bad place to eat, but not the best either.
