Magpie is my go-to neighbourhood restaurant. Simple, no fuss and yet stylish. Pizza of course is their specialty. The wood-burning oven churns out a small selection of either very inventive or classic pies (I always go for the margarita. It's perfection.) Quality ingredients, crispy light dough, fresh mozzarella, the real deal. It's hard to find pizza in Montreal that lives up to New York and Brooklyn standards but this one is not far. Good wine list. A small but interesting selection of appetizers, I particularly like the half-dozen oysters that come in a metal vat filled with ice, and your selection of toppings like mignonette, hot sauce, horse radish, etc. Always fresh. And they make a good caesar salad. My only complaint is that too many people know about it and it's hard to just walk in, but they do take reservations.
