Where to Get Some Worthy Westmount Takeout

Thirteen excellent options in the enclave

View as Map

When it comes to the hierarchy of neighbourhoods in Montreal’s dining scene, Westmount continues to be more notorious for its population of monied anglophones than it is for its restaurants. While this city-within-a-city (it’s technically not part of Montreal) has been able to rest on the laurels of hosting an address from celebrated chef Antonio Park, the arrival of some new names and projects show promise for its reputation.

This map sticks to Westmount’s official boundaries: Grey Avenue to the west, the Ville-Marie Expressway to the south, Atwater to the east, and the outer edge of Summit Park to the north. The points on the map are arranged west to east, and aren’t ranked.

Note: Restaurants on this map are listed geographically.

1. Aux Vivres Westmount

Copy Link
4896 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Westmount
QC H3Z 1H1, Canada
(514) 543-1267
Visit Website

Despite its refined franchise feel, Aux Vivres hasn’t expanded much since it was founded in 1997. That’s what makes this Westmount location so significant. Whatever the reason it took aim at this neighbourhood, its full menu is on offer here in addition to a downstairs grocery store carrying Aux Vivres growing list of products.

2. Toucheh

Copy Link
351 Avenue Prince Albert, Westmount
QC H3Z 2N9, Canada
(514) 369-6868
Visit Website

Open for two decades, Toucheh was a stalwart Italian restaurant for Westmount. But an ownership switch has mixed things up, and its current Iranian owners have started incorporating dishes of their own. Together, it makes a menu unlike any other: Penne and scallopini appear alongside chelo-mahicheh (lamb shank), dolmeh (stuffed peppers), and mirza qasemi (smoked and baked eggplant).

3. Park

Copy Link
378 Avenue Victoria, Westmount
QC H3Z 2N4, Canada
(514) 750-7534
Visit Website

Antonio Park’s eponymous restaurant is his first, and is known for some of the city’s finest sushi, hands down. That’s partly due to the restaurant’s private import license for its seafood while incorporating Park’s background in Korean and South American flavours. The restaurant also boasts having a line on A5 Wagyu, and that means luxurious burgers and steaks as well. A true crash course comes from Park’s “onigiri box” that gives an omakase-like cross-section of the restaurant’s entire menu.

4. Café Bazin

Copy Link
380 Avenue Victoria, Westmount
QC H3Z 1C3, Canada
(438) 387-3070
Visit Website

Bertrand Bazin has been known for his pastries for quite some time, and this coproduction with Antonio Park is a high point for the pastry master. Bazin’s menus currently lean more towards the sweet side with cakes, pies, classic Paris-Brests, and more, but there are savoury options like wonderfully laminated croissants and tasty quiches as well.

5. Bistro La Franquette

Copy Link
374 Avenue Victoria, Westmount
QC H3Z 2N4, Canada
(438) 380-4545
Visit Website

This restaurant’s appearance marks the first official excursion for sommelier Renée Deschenes and chefs Louie Deligianis and Blake Hickerson following their work at Pastel and making waves with a pop-up dinner series named Baby Duck. Salads, pastries, snacks of arancini and sandwiches made with fresh, in-house sourdough and rye make up their lunch menu, while hangar steaks with gem lettuce salads, black cod filets with brown butter, and more make their dinner menus more than substantial with thoughtful wines and ciders to go.

6. Petros

Copy Link
4785 Rue Sherbrooke O, Westmount
QC H3Z 1G5, Canada
(514) 938-5656
Visit Website

This Greek restaurant comes with a lot of well-executed surf, turf, and traditional classics — not to mention a solid endorsement from critic Lesley Chesterman. Find a sizeable selection of meze to pick from to pair with fried zucchini chips and shrimp saganaki before feasting on sizeable platters weighed down with a whole roasted leg of lamb or grilled seafood. If you want the moussaka, it needs to be ordered a day in advance.

7. Copoli

Copy Link
4458 Rue Sainte-Catherine, Westmount
QC H3Z 1R7, Canada
(514) 989-8580
Visit Website

Originally an NDG burger spot, Nader Zarkari’s beloved mom-and-pop burger shop was forced to relocate from its location near Vendôme metro due to rent hikes in 2016. Now the business lives on in Westmount, serving burgers so gigantic they’re cut into quarters. Don’t let the nearby high school kids have all the fun: chow down.

8. Kashima

Copy Link
1232 Avenue Greene, Westmount
QC H3Z 1Z9, Canada
(514) 934-0962
Visit Website

Tucked away upstairs on Greene Avenue is this Japanese gem: It’s commonly looked to for its sushi and sashimi, with curious eyes quickly being drawn to their Titanic platter. However, Kashima does just as much in terms of curry, bento boxes, tempura, and donburi bowls. A good bet, day or night.

9. Chez Nick

Copy Link
1377 Avenue Greene, Westmount
QC H3Z 2A5, Canada
(514) 935-0946
Visit Website

This diner may well be Westmount’s best-kept secret. Open since 1920, it’s likely the most polished of greasy spoons found in town. Chez Nick does the trick for all-day breakfasts, excellent sandwiches across the board, and a selection of sweets to go with a cup of joe.

10. Saint Sushi Westmount

Copy Link
1359 Avenue Greene, Westmount
QC H3Z 2A9, Canada
(514) 543-4814
Visit Website

Moving onto the Westmount scene in 2018 after five years in the Plateau, Saint Sushi’s Laotian chef Saeng Outhipvongxay brings experience from Tri Express; that’s likely the reason the restaurant keeps things casual without skimping on quality. The menu is full of playful names for maki like ‘Beatles’ and ‘Tupac,’ and its selection of nigiri, sashimi, hosomaki, and sushi pizza remain popular here.

11. Cafe Gentile

Copy Link
4126 Rue Sainte-Catherine, Westmount
QC H3Z 1P4, Canada
(514) 925-8686
Visit Website

After nearly six decades at an address in the Garment District, this Italian spot expanded to Westmount with many of the its classic Italian sandwiches while expanding its menu to substantial offerings of pasta and protein courses. Westmount residents are big on the coffee and lemonade here as well, and the neatly designed interior from Zebulon Perron ain’t too shabby either.

12. Gentile Pizza Parlour

Copy Link
4134 Rue Sainte-Catherine, Westmount
QC H3Z 2Y5, Canada
(514) 544-7437
Visit Website

Located right next door to Café Gentile, this pizza parlour fashioned after the owners’ youth spent in basement rec rooms joins the city’s obsession with New York-style pies while offering up thick Sicilian squares as well. The restaurant’s head pizzaiolo Dan Krystal is well-studied and it shows, from a classic pepperoni to the sumptuous seven-cheese pie with truffle honey. Don’t skip on those cacio e pepe arancini and house mozza sticks either.

13. Tavern On the Square

1 Carré Westmount, Westmount
QC H3Z 2P9, Canada
(514) 989-9779

The efforts of this restaurant’s sommelier Jonathan Cercone, chef Stephen Leslie, and chef de cuisine Brad Van Dyke have culminated in high praise from the press and public alike, with top-notch Italian and French choices (and beyond) reigning supreme. A regularly shifting selection of specials keep things interesting, from handmade strozzapretti with a Wagyu beef ragù to whole chickens stuffed with focaccia.
