3 restaurants I visited recently.

Su (5145 Rue Wellington Verdun)
Very good, albeit not as exotic as I expected the food to be (or I'm just used to ethnic food).
We (2) shared a plate of mezze, all were good; but it does render justice to just order that small amount, I'll try to convice a few other friends to go there and order more mezze to be able to try the whole selection.
For the mains, we had the Levrek izgara (loup de mer) and the Kuzu incik (jarret d'agneau) both dish were well done, the fish well cooked, but as I say earlier, not as exotic as expected, the cuisine was more "mediteranean".

Wine list was nice, service agreable.


Pastaga ( 6389 Boul. Saint-Laurent)
Went for an early diner, menu is very reminiscent of Bouchonné (and maybe La Monté (de lait) ?) with some old classics like the Chopped Liver and the marinated salmon.
Wine list is small but excellent (IMO), all the wines I tasted were very good (unfortunatly all/most are private imports, harder than just going to the SAQ and get a bottle).
I got the "Doré" and the "Hot Chicken", the fish was very good, the hot chicken (was not chicken, but another bird) was good maybe missing a bit of generosity.
Dessert was good (I'm not a dessert person, so YMMV).

One thing, maybe is that the menu is not that "pastis" influence as I expected.

i asked about the "chef's table", and the wait staff told me that it is quite fun when there's a hockey match on the TV.


Milos (5357 Avenue du Parc) for the 22h specials.
Tried the lobster pasta (extra $$), it was very good and filling; others got the dorade and the burger; all looked good, baklava was good, not too sweet.
I think it's a nice option for late night munchies.
