Montreal has always been known for the incredible eats that you can find all over the city. The array of ethnic cuisines all around us let us take little culinary trips every time we go to a new Montreal restaurant. And the city just got a new player in the food game: restaurant Ayla.*\nLocated on avenue Richmond, this eatery is serving up Mediterranean-inspired dishes that will instantly make you feel hungry for more.\nTrying new spots in Montreal has always been one of my favourite things to do, which is why Ayla's recent opening is so exciting to me.\nRight now, Ayla is open for both pickup and delivery.\nAs stated on its website, in true Mediterranean fashion, the menu is "best when shared" and the numerous dishes will make me want to try them all.\nSome of the must-try dishes according to the owner, David Dayan, are "the beet salad with lentil, the taboon roasted vegetables, and the lamb hummus."\nThe restaurant has also created a special "Ayla a la Maison menu" and will not be releasing its full menu just yet.\nThe owner says he decided to open Ayla during this unusual time because it simply "felt right."\nView this post on Instagram She’s arrived. // @ayla.restaurant A post shared by Steph Bercovitch (@stephparisberks) on May 21, 2020 at 4:07pm PDT\nHe went on to explain that "we had practically everything done and we were ready to open and didn't want the hard work to change the focus of the business."\nThis new restaurant was inspired by his travels and family.\nDayan believes that what makes this establishment stand out is the experience they have when they will enter.\nView this post on Instagram Nouveau @ayla.restaurant dans Griffintown - un projet du proprio des Ryu!
