13 Exciting New Takeout Menus to Try Right Now in Montreal

Featuring some bouillabaisse, frozen ramen, and a market-inspired dinner for two

View as Map

With the latest wave of restaurant shutdowns and the shift to takeout only, “Here we go again” was the resigned expression on everyone’s mind. Some restaurateurs are staying closed for the moment, waiting for new government directives; others have gone back to their compostable containers and re-booted their menus for a new round of takeout and delivery.

This map features some worth-your-attention takeout menus that Montreal restaurants are offering in this latest wave of lockdown. Most spots are featuring wines, too — many at caviste prices.

Quebec has temporarily closed indoor dining rooms to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. For updated information and regulations, please visit the official sites of the Quebec government and Montreal’s public health authority (Santé Montréal).

1. Salle Climatisee

6448 Boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal
QC H2S 3C4, Canada
(514) 277-5504
Visit Website

Located between Mile End and Mile Ex, just short of Little Italy, this diminutive bistro run by three Maison Publique alums has got dinner covered with a bi-weekly market-inspired Souper à Deux. The three-course menu is posted on Tuesday and available for pick-up Friday to Sunday. A current offering features fennel salad, bollito misto, and a ricotta Paris Brest; sandwiches and sundry snacks are available on pick-up day.

2. Restaurant Beba

This tiny Verdun resto run by brothers Ari and Pablo Schor has gotten back into their groove, serving up their lambwich and oversized Milanesa alongside hefty empanadas with ever-changing flavours. Warming weekly specials warrant a deeper dive, especially their very IG-worthy potato crostata with caviar, to be perfectly paired with some bubbly.

3. Pichai

5985 Rue St-Hubert, Montréal
QC H2S 2L8, Canada
(514) 419-1606
Visit Website

With the dining room closed, Pichai is getting behind noodles this time, with a menu they are calling Sen! Sen! Sen! Executive Chef Jesse Mulder is serious when he says noodles three times in Thai: his take on Chiang Mai’s khao soi gai is a rich coconut-based egg noodle soup with origins in Muslim-Chinese cuisine. Kuay Tiaw tom yum moo, a pork broth with ground pork, in-house Moo Daeng red Chinese barbecue pork and thin rice noodles, is served with roasted chili flakes, vinegar, and lime juice, a bright mix of flavours and textures any time.

4. Sumac

3618 Rue Notre Dame O, Montréal

It’s all schnitzel, all the time from one of the southwest’s most popular Middle Eastern restaurants. Warm it up at home, with or without a bowl of ash-e-reshteh, the classic Iranian bean, green, and noodle soup that just made its way to the menu. Don’t forget some cardamom orange cake on the side. 

5. Mano Cornuto

988 Rue Ottawa, Montréal
QC H3C 1S3, Canada
(514) 868-8451
Visit Website

New year, new menu for this cozy Griffintown eatery. Their Sugo Sunday pasta-and-sauce blowout has moved to takeout and they’ve also added new sandwiches, an antipasti platter and salad, and sfincione, a Sicilian-style pizza literally meaning “sponge” — margarita, pesto, or diavolo — finished with breadcrumbs. And if there’s still room, there’s always panacotta. 

6. Ratafia

6778 Boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal
QC H2S 3C7, Canada
(514) 543-8033

The creative couple behind this Little Italy wine and dessert bar is back with more clever (and delicious) marketing: a Boîte Anti-Blues is a three-course menu for two, including a cocktail kit, appetizer and main, and their “Crunchy,” a signature labneh cream, orange flower dessert. The Sweet Date box for two includes two hot chocolates (or coffee), a yuzu and chocolate brioche, soft cookies with white chocolate, cardamon, and pistachios, and green tea petit fours. Other desserts are available à la carte, along with wines from their collection.

7. Barranco

(514) 282-9000

Since travel to Lima (and everywhere else) seems fraught right now, Barranco’s newly released Peruvian menu showcases meaty Peruvian-style sandwiches and platters with chorizo, steak, and pork. The side dishes are a carb-lover’s dream, featuring causas — a layered potato casserole— choclo (large-kernelled South American corn) slathered with cheese and mayo or in a veggie-rich mashup, and Peruvian fried potatoes (yellow or sweet) and yucca.

8. Ramen Nakamichi

5329 Boul. Saint-Laurent, Montréal
QC H2T 1S5, Canada
(514) 802-8899

Specializing in tori-paitan (chicken white broth), Nakamichi’s frozen ramen is easy to warm up any time of day — you just have to order Friday to Monday for pick-up a few days later (their instagram details how it works). Available in regular, spicy, and veggie, these might look like frozen pucks but the taste is umami-rich. Spontaneous ordering from the full (not frozen) menu for this Mile End spot is still available, too.

9. Sep Lai

2601 Rue Centre, Montréal
QC H3K 1K2, Canada
(514) 315-9981
Visit Website

Pointe-Saint-Charles Lao eatery Sep Lai has come up with a new takeout menu, including Lao rice salad Nem Khao Tod; a choice of laap including vegan, chicken with liver, and fish; som pak (fermented cabbage with garlic); and Lao-style papaya salad, Tam Mak Houng. There’s an emphasis on freshness, and vegans and gluten-free diners can find satisfying choices here through the carefully annotated menu. 

10. Junior Filipino

Spicy soy-garlic buto-buto ribs, lechon and waffles, and all manner of Pinoy food are on Junior’s winter menu, along with the classic pancit palabok with pork and shrimp. There’s still an option for the Kamayan feast — Junior’s specialty dishes, all laid out on a banana leaf for two. 

11. Sushi Okeya Kyujiro

1227 Rue de la Montagne, Montréal

High-end downtown Japanese restaurant Okeya Kyujiro has joined forces with Sakao Ö Japanese tea for a special ochazuke meal: a Japanese dish made by pouring green tea over cooked rice and fish. The meal for two includes classic Genmai Cha (green tea mixed with roasted popped brown rice) and a ceramic tea pot, along with an assortment of sushi and sashimi.

Chefs Francis Blais and Camilo Lapointe-Nascimento created a citywide buzz with their streetwise postering tactics showcasing pastry-encrusted pithiviers. Now, it’s time for their bouillabaisse to take its turn for a chance at fame; the duo have created another high-end meal kit including a garlic and saffron rouille to accompany the main and a pudding chômeur éclair for dessert.

Jeffrey Finkelstein makes a special Friday night meal each week, but you don’t have to be Jewish to love it: from chicken to beef to lamb or fish, the choice changes every week and sells out quickly. The meal feeds two generously and includes a weekly dessert and one of the bakery’s renowned baguettes. Get some chicken soup with matzo balls if it’s been that kind of week; they say it’s good for the soul.
