Montreal’s NDG (or Notre-Dame-de-Grâce,) is one truly awesome neighborhood which also happens to have some amazing places to eat and drink. These spots are totally worth checking out, all within short driving distance of Auberge St. Jacques.

 

 

Ye Olde Orchard Pub & Grill

5563 Monkland Blvd.

Ye Olde Orchard has been in MTLblog’s sights before for their enormous and delicious capon wings. They make our NDG drinks list for their cheap beer and good pub food, like Sri Lankan curries!

Honey Martin

5916 rue Sherbrooke Ouest

A fantastic NDD Honey Martin has everything…. it’s small with old wood floors, small booths with stained glass, taxidermied owl, a wall of whiskeys, bourbons and scotches, Guinness on tap, friendly no stress staff, regulars being friendly to each other and to strangers at the bar.” This quote was taken, with no shame, from Montreal Yelp superhero Risa D.

Lucille’s Oyster Dive

5626 Monkland

Lucille’s Oyster Dive is a long-standing Monkland Ave. favourite in N.D.G Caesar’s made with crab chunks, dozens of fresh oysters, and lobster rolls are just some of what to love in Lucille’s. Great summer decor, including a mermaid statue, that Seals the deal.

Monkland Taverne

5555 Monkland Ave

Vibrant neighbourhood fixture with a retro edge for eclectic favourites & fixed-price market menus. The Monkland Taverne makes the list for their special honey ginger shrimp and salmon tartare. As the cuisine indicates, this is not an inexpensive stop, but definitely one worth making.
