This is the spot of the old Le Pistol which was a favorite night spot of mine. I was happy to see that it was replaced with a restaurant of the same caliber and feel. Great spot to go for a midnight bite and a good alternative to the regular Montreal spots for post-drinking.

This little place is now in my top 10 Montreal places to eat.

The front of the restaurant looks a bit like a cafeteria, but the back has great big booths for groups of friends, and a kind of retro feel.

Everything we ate was amazing, the salmon handrolls were a meal on their own, we had pork buns, and crispy pork and, hello, they have scallop poutine! How can you go wrong with that?

Can't wait to go back, and what's great is it's open until crazy late, so it's good having an option other than McDonald's at 2 am! Apparently a lot of Montreal chefs eat here after hours, so you know it must be good. I will take pictures next time to post.

I really want to like this place, because the decor is great and I really like the venue, but the food is way too expensive for what it is and really not that good. Not coming back. ever.
