Hi everyone we would like to share with you our food experiences in Montréal.
Restaurant LOMBARDI is located on duluth street in the popular plateau Mont-Royal area. It's a BYOW type restaurant.
Our friend Georges told us about this place. He told us that the restaurant re-opened after being closed for more than a year because of a fire.
We noticed that the building is brand new. Our waiter told us that everything is new except the personnel. Everybody is back on the floor and in the kitchen. Guess he wanted to reassure us by saying it's the same good old cuisine. Same or not we didn't care since it was our first visit.
Our experience was as expected from a restaurant serving Italian cuisine. It was very rich and nourishing. We had for starters melon prosciutto and figs prosciutto that were very tasty. Especially the figs and prosciutto interaction.
For main course we had a huge pork shop a la sauce porto and veggies. You have to be hungry for that one. You know how it is when you're full and it's good, you keep on eating. An interesting twist was the trio pasta dish. Usually when we had similar dishes in the past, it was the same sauce for the 3 different pasta but at Lombardi's it was a different sauce for each pasta.
Since Restaurant Lombardi is a BYOW type restaurant, a bonus is the location of the wine store called SAQ two doors down from the restaurant. In the province of Quebec, most "BYOW" (bring your own wine) restaurants don't charge a corking fee like other restaurants in the rest of Canada.
Here's a link to a video of our experience there.
