Step Inside Iconic Montreal Steakhouse Moishes

Welcome to our photo series Eater Scenes, where Eater photographer Randall Brodeur visits some of the city's great restaurants to capture them at a certain, and very specific, point in the day. Today, Moishes.

It's safe to say that no restaurant in Montreal has stood the test of time quite like Moishes. The city's Main drag has undergone untold changes over the last 75 years but the iconic steakhouse is still here and still run by the same family. Almost three decades after their father Moishe Lighter passed, sons Lenny and Larry have freshened their legacy without dishonouring its soulful nucleus. At 9:30 p.m., especially on Fridays, new, younger patrons start to arrive for the restaurant's late night menu, just as old regulars depart with their families — not forgetting to let their grandchildren take a few pieces of Dubble Bubble for the road.
