Montreal Lobster Bar Pincette Is A Perfect Date Spot

Pincette, Montreal's newest lobster bar, has opened its doors on rue Saint-Paul. It features classic seafood dishes with a distinctly Montreal twist — equal parts elegant and quirky.

Here, you can enjoy both a traditional lobster roll and delightfully sacrilegious lobster poutine in a cozy-chic setting that romanticizes blue-collar coastal life with its whimsical nautical décor (look up at the lobster trap pendant lighting).

You can also order the Bloody Pincette, a caesar with a snow crab leg sticking out of it, and an ultra-gooey lobster mac n' cheese alongside more time-honoured items like the lobster roll, fish and chips, lobster bisque and linguini with clams.

Our recommendation: the cod fritters — beer-battered bites served with creamy tartar sauce.
