After having one of the greatest meals in 2011 at Icehouse, we got a chance to try its sister restaurant Kitchenette earlier this month. A little off the beaten path, the place is located on the outer edges of the Village on the corner of Rene Levesque and Panet. There is a distinct vibe that lends itself to the space – an open kitchen is prominently featured, being visible from almost all angles of the restaurant. The mix of antique decor – leather banquettes, old wooden floors and weathered barstools – with the modern facilities of the kitchen meshes incredibly well to create an intimate yet contemporary atmosphere that is unlike any other.
Aziatik is a pan-asian restaurant located just off McGill Street on the western edge of Old Montreal. The vibe they are trying to establish is upscale and the interior is well decorated. The menu was recently expanded to offer an even broader representation of Asian cuisine. My favorite dish at this spot is the thai duck which is served sizzling on a plate. This time, we ordered Shrimp and Vegetable Tempura, Crispy fried Squids with salt, pepper, onions and bell peppers, Cantonese Chow Mein, Red Curry and Coconut Milk Vegetables and Spicy Tuna / Spicy Salmon rolls.
