Montreal Is Opening An All-New "Fresh Pasta" Restaurant

Guys, what's your favourite food? Is it ravioli? Is it gnocchi? Is it spaghetti? Whatever it is, it's sure to be some sort of pasta dish, right? Pasta is everyone's fave. Pasta is life.

Of course, those of you who follow me on social media know how much I adore pasta. I make it fresh at home; I've incorporated it into my diet; very soon I will turn into a plate of gnocchi and everything will be right with the world. But before that, I'm always scouting for new places to enjoy one of my most favourite dishes.

Trattoria Luciano (1212 Rue Saint Zotique E) is one of Little Italy's newest eateries, having been opened for about three months now. Their menu has a solid offering of traditional Italian appetizers - like meatballs and mozzarella Bufala - as well as a handful of meat options.

Their main focus, though? Pasta. Their pasta choices include pappardelle with braised rabbit, lobster spaghetti, and five mushroom ravioli. If this seems like your newest fave - and, let's be honest, it totally does - then don't forget to check them out on Facebook.

The team behind iconic Montreal nightclubs École Privée and Coda have opened a supper club called 212 in the heart of Old Montreal boasting an "immersive dining experience." Not knowing what the heck an "immersive dining experience" entails, I went to check it out — and if you're looking for a meal with a side of flair and pizazz, this is the place to get it.

Naturally, we started with drinks. The first cocktail to catch my eye was the 212 Spicy Margarita. I figured that a drink named after the restaurant means you're in for a treat, and I'm proud to say my theory was correct.

Any seafood or cocktail lover in Montreal is going to absolutely adore the new Restaurant Sauvage in the city.

I tried the salmon tartare as an appetizer and the grilled octopus with pesto hummus as my main dish. I am not kidding when I say both were unbelievably delicious. The different fish in both dishes were extremely fresh as if they had just been caught from the Mediterranean Sea. Basically a little culinary trip for your taste buds.
