Gilbert Rosenberg

Mike Cohen savors a first-class meal at the venerable Gibbys Steakhouse

    There are restaurants in Montreal which merit being compared to a “unique dining experience” and Gibbys certainly qualifies for that category.

    In 1969 Gilbert (Gibby) Rosenberg and two partners established a steakhouse in St. Sauveur. His nickname stuck and would soon become legendary. Three years later a second Gibbys opened up in a historic former stable in Place d’Youville in Old Montreal. The rest is history. Today, both locales continue to thrive. For a brief time, there was even South Florida locale in Fort Lauderdale.
