It's not always easy to decide where to celebrate New Year's Day. Most of Montreal's resto-bars organize entertaining parties, so you end up with a multitude of places to choose from. Fish Bone, a restaurant that opened in the summer of 2019, welcomed many fans of good food and clubbing on December 31, and even some of the Habs players' girlfriends went there for a visit.
This restaurant, located on Notre-Dame Street West, near the Old Port of Montreal, took the place of the popular Tapas 24, which closed last spring.
In addition to offering a varied menu, Fish Bone also becomes a club with DJs on weekends. It's open until 1 a.m. on Thursdays and Fridays and 2 a.m. on Saturdays.
In short, it's the perfect place to eat while partying.
Fish Bone offers "modern coastal cuisine" where seafood, fish and some meats are served, and it's all really mouth-watering.
A certain influence of Japanese cuisine is also noticeable in the menu, while sushi, tatakis and others are available.
The decor is just as attractive as the dishes. Indeed, the whole is really warm and reminiscent of Japanese simplicity, where nature and modernity combine wonderfully.
Huge wooden walls are lined with greenery contrasting with more industrial elements.
The girlfriends of several Blue-White-Red stars, including Tomáš Tatar, Victor Mete, Nate Thompson, Christian Folin and Nick Cousins, took advantage of New Year's Day to visit this establishment.
The team was in Raleigh, North Carolina, for a game against the Hurricanes.
