MTLàTABLE: The iconic Chez Lévêque has been a Montreal landmark for more than 50 years

    Just over 50 years ago, Pierre Lévêque became the owner of La Lucarne, a small steak house on Laurier Avenue, already elegantly adorned with warm, inviting storefronts. The name changed to Chez Lévêque and a Montreal landmark was born. Still in the hands of the Lévêque family, this Parisian Brasserie continues to shine with a menu very much taking on a Lyon, France vibe. I was therefore quite pleased to experience this place for the very first time.

          From a great raw bar to a top-notch menu Lucille’s Oyster Dive offers a great dining experience

          Lucille’s Oyster Dive opened its first location on Monkland Avenue in NDG back in 2009.  For reasons I cannot properly explain, it took me 14 years to enjoy my first experience and wow was this ever a treat!

          There are now five restaurant locations – NDG, Fairview Pointe-Claire, Dix30 in Brossard, Laval and Mont Tremblant. In addition, there is a summer pop-up at Atwater Market,  three food trucks and a catering division. We decided to enjoy our first Lucille’s experience at Fairview.
