Vote Now For Montreal’s Affordable Restaurant of the Year

Who kept prices low and quality high?

Eater Awards 2016 Best Cheap and Casual Restaurant winner, Noren
Randall Brodeur

Welcome to day four of the 8th annual Eater Awards, honouring the most esteemed restaurants, bars, chefs, and more in cities across the world. Here’s how the Eater Awards work: All 24 Eater cities and the national site will award prizes in multiple categories, including but not limited to Restaurant of the Year, Chef of the Year, and Design of the Year. In each category, editors will choose an editor’s choice winner and readers will vote for a reader’s choice winner — all to be announced on December 5, 2017. Editor’s choice winners will receive an illustrious tomato can trophy, as is the tradition around here. Eater will also further the fanfare, running a splashy feature about every editor’s choice winner throughout the course of the coming year.

Now, without any further ado, it’s time to vote for the reader’s choice winner in the Affordable Restaurant of the Year category. Nominations considered any new restaurant that opened from 1 October 2016 until 30 September 2017, inclusive, and they focus on restaurants that lean towards a more casual service, including lunch or daytime only establishments, counters, cafés, and so forth. Polls will be open for 24 hours and will be strictly policed for funny business. Choose wisely between one of the following:

  • Café Baba Yaga, the St-Henri newcomer doing everything Polish from pierogies to paczki
  • Café Bazin, the classically French lunch spot in Westmount from pastry whiz Bertrand Bazin and chef Antonio Park
  • Foodchain, doing creative salads downtown with partners from Montréal Plaza and Hof Kelsten
  • Il Miglio, the Mile End fresh pasta project from the group behind Montreal classic Le Club Chasse et Pêche
  • Porco, the project that turned a popular porchetta sandwich stand into a meaty and viable NDG restaurant
