Montreal has (had?) some of the best mideastern restaurants in N. America.
My favorites were Alep (Jean Talon), Olive (St Denis) and Daou (off an alley not far from Jean Talon).
I am pretty sure Olive has disapeared. Are the other two still around? How about any new or recent ones?
Finally, Montreal has, hands down, the best baklawa in the western hemisphere with *Mahrouseh*. The owner's family, from Aleppo, Syria, has been in the business for about 300 years (Aleppo is the oldest city in the world)...
