A new Westmount restaurant is all about combining the glitz and glam of the city with Montreal's laid-back vibe. Guilt & Ivy opens in September and is the perfect place to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary or simply just celebrate life.

Located on Sherbrooke Street West, in the heart of Westmount, Guilt & Ivy is a two-storey dining space with white brick walls and hanging ivy around every turn. The marble accents, oak floors and thick butcher block tables add the oomph that you'd expect from a destination in one of Montreal's most high-end neighbourhoods.

The menu comprises a raw bar and grill serving fresh oysters, seafood towers and ribeye steak sharing platters. As you enter, you'll be greeted with a display of fresh daily catches.

Menu items will range from $20 bites to $150 Tomahawk steaks for those looking to get a little decadent.

There's even a private chef's table in the kitchen for an exclusive dining experience.

The drinks menu is just as special with a heavy focus on Champagne and wines.

Don't be surprised to see fridges with luxury names, like Insignia, Caymus and Dom Perignon Luminous.

A curated cocktail list accompanies each of the items on the food menu for a perfect pairing. On top of that, each table will be offered bottle service to take their night to the next level.

Guilt & Ivy is another creation from the team behind Aqua Farina, a new Italian restaurant with locations in Old Montreal and Monkland Village. The team is led by Matt Coolen, who has a background in Vancouver nightlife and is bringing a bit of that laid-back vibe to Montreal.

"It was important for us to make a menu that was accessible on a daily basis for the neighbourhood," said Coolen.

"You can feel as comfortable coming by after work for a salad or an amazing burger with your family, as you would getting dressed up on a Saturday night, and having the perfect steak with some lobster tails and a bottle of Champagne."
