A Michelin-Starred Sushi Restaurant Will Open An Old Montreal Speakeasy Counter
Indulge in the art of sushi like never before. 🍣
A Michelin-starred group is launching its first Canadian venture in Montreal. Sushi by Scratch Restaurants is set to open a 10-seat counter in Old Montreal this May.
The intimate sushi bar, housed in Stillife speakeasy, will offer a 17-course omakase-inspired experience featuring the innovative creations of husband-and-wife chef team Phillip Frankland Lee and Margarita Kallas-Lee. The same tasting menu at their Montecito location in California has won a Michelin Star for two years running.
The award-winning duo will offer their signature take on nigiri, promising impeccable presentation and unexpected flavour combinations. The Lees will also incorporate local fish and shellfish into their dishes and import weekly specialties from Tokyo's famed Toyosu Fish Market.

A sake sommelier will help guests pick from an assortment of Japanese pairings. A three-pairing option from a choice of sakes, micro cocktails, beer and whisky is priced at $125 to $165. Drinks will also be available à la carte.
