Look Inside Mon Lapin, the Latest From the Joe Beef Group

Also, peep some of the wine bar’s dishes

Major players from famed Montreal restaurant Joe Beef opened up Little Italy wine bar Mon Lapin just a week ago. And while chef-owner Marc-Olivier Frappier, sommelier Vanya Filipovic, with the original trio of David McMillan, Allison Cunningham, and Fred Morin should have no problem filling any room with diners, this nook is their most petite venue yet.

As reported when it opened, there’s just 35 seats in a corner spot on St-Zotique East and Casgrain — a handful at the bar and most on warm leather booths and banquettes around the room. Those three dozen-or-so diners can pick from an ever-shifting menu of around 15 dishes. A spin through Instagram reveals some of the early dishes that have been offered (of course, there’s no guarantee that they’ll be there in future) — as promised, the menu puts classical influences into new creations with dishes that read as hearty over arty.

Some (complete with so-so Instagram lighting) can be seen below — there has a “pink salad” with possibly shaved foie gras, tripe and bean cacio e pepe, a buckwheat cake, and frozen yogurt with iced pumpkin seeds, and honeyberry (camerise) sorbet. But before that, peep the dining room itself.
