Joe Beef Montreal Qc Canada Menu 2022

Joe Beef Montreal Qc Canada Menu

There aren’t many eateries that are located in North America that embolden gluttony like Joe Beef. It’s the blackboards that line every space, scribbled by the name of sexual pleasures, written in lilting French:

foie de veau au girolles, tournedos de cheval aux escargot, saucisse de lapin en salami, steak de gigot d’agneau. The slinky knots of spaghetti that trap bacon and lobster into their spirals are devoured at every table.

It’s the way that an arcuate arc of flowing Chablis is reflected off the dim lighting. It’s the chat-up-your-neighbor coziness. In reality, it’s not making the possibility of making a reservation.

Its success hasn’t diminished the giddy atmosphere of the restaurant. Get yourself in the action with your appetite and cash. (The dishes may be cool, but the price isn’t inexpensive, and it’s easy to order too much.) The staff, who are friendly and professional but close to family-oriented guides customers through their menu that changes frequently, but always has a similar theme.

Start by eating raw oysters from the bar. The oyster selection in summer was modest but reliable. Joe Beef is famous for its fatty spectacles, however, the warmer temperatures also brought cornucopias, such as the magnificent aioli, a plate filled with zucchini, cauliflower asparagus spears, asparagus scapes, and half-dozen other vegetables including clams, boiled eggs, and garlicky aioli chunky with potatoes. Radishes added a zing of peppery freshness to toasts of buttered bread laced with the ham’s velvety cubes of house-cured and served with a light, delicate pesto

Croquettes shaped like tater-tots overgrown are broken to reveal a savory filling made of smoked meats Montreal’s answer to pastrami. The Signature “spaghetti lobster-homard,” with chopped bacon and a hint of tarragon in butter and cream is a bridge between vintage lobster Thermidor and pasta carbonara. 

I ordered the restaurant’s version on the Double Down from KFC–lobes of foie gras, sandwiched between the bacon and cheddar with chicken skin mayonnaise and drizzles of maple syrup. I wished I didn’t. It could be a good money-maker but it was just as disgusting as it seems. 

The other disappointment of the meal was the veal tongue that was covered in shaved turnips which appeared to be the petals of a white rose. Gorgeous, but challenging to chew in the way that a tongue should never be.

We didn’t notice the mistake as the neck of the lamb fell. It lay on a swimming pool of polenta rich and sprinkled with slivered herb and chile flakes, as well as grated cheese. It was no more threatening than the bone-in or leg of a roast. 

The meat was tender and not overly wild. We’ll see some of these on the menus very soon. The bubbly drinks Director Vanya Filipovic made us feel awestruck by Chenin Blanc, among other French delights. Make sure you discuss pricing. Two-thirds of choices jump into the 3-digit zone.

Dessert concluded the meal in a fitting manner with a traditional Marjolaine (a complex, intricate hazelnut and chocolate cake) as well as a funny Yule log, which was translated to the time of year with pistachios as well as strawberries. 

Joe Beef does largely manage to fulfill the ridiculous expectations it has created. Montreal offers a staggering array of exquisite dining options, but this is one restaurant that can be the basis for an excursion. 2491 Notre-Dame West, Montreal; 514-935-654; Website open for dinner on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 6 to 11:00 p.m.

                                                                  $13

You can come for food and wine equally. Similar to Joe Beef, the menus are constantly changing and menus and lists are displayed on chalkboards. Vanya Filipovic is in charge of the drinks program in the restaurant also. (She shuttles between the eateries each night through the back alley.) 

Here is the area where she lets her wine-loving flag fly serving a wide selection of biodynamic French wine lovers that hail from Burgundy along within the Loire as well as the Jura and the Jura, as well as lesser-known ones that hail from Slovenia and Georgia (the region) and occasionally New World gems, like the Pinot Blanc from Kerner Estates in New Zealand.

Vegetables, as an exciting change, rule in the smaller plates ($5.50-$13) however they’re also paired with protein in clever ways. Crisped chicken skins and crispy capers bring out the delicious grilling of cauliflower that are cooked on the rotating. 

The lobster chunks mix well with basil, mint, and translucent pieces of cucumber as well as yellow squash. It’s not just the skill of cooking, but the ease at which the many food items are compatible with wine. 2519 Rue Notre-Dame West, Montreal; website; Open Tuesday-Saturday 3 p.m. – midnight.
