Newtown is a nicely styled restaurant with a twist of fusion and exoticism. I visited Newtown back in June 2013 with friends over drinks. Here<s how the experience went:
It is located in the middle of Crescent street just on the intersection with Maisonneuve and between Sherbrooke and St Catherine making it very easily accessible on foot from all corners of the street. Closest public transport access would be from the Guy-Concordia subway station with a short walk eastward.
Newtown is also located between many different restaurants, bars and lounges so you can start by having a bite at Newtown and continue for drinks next door or do it the other way around
2- The place itself
It s definitely a very nicely decorated place with lots of funky colors on walls, floors and ceilings. The place is mainly purple with many variations of the color just everywhere It is lightly lit just to reflect the actual brightness of the place. Newtown is mainly an indoors place that has huge openings on each of its north and east sides that give the impression of being completely outdoors on one of those nice sunny Montreal summer or spring days
All furniture seems to be new and well maintained. The best thing about it is that tables are well spaced so you have all the privacy you need to have a conversation without having anyone eavesdropping on you
The food menu is not bad at all. It has all the regular offering that you would see in any typical Montreal restaurant. I don't think Newtown has a specialty but his drinks are nicely prepared and his beer is always served cold and in a genuine beer glass or pint. They also have a really nice variety of beers that will suit your liking
4- Services and price
The service is fast and is handled by courteous waiters and waitresses who won't overwhelm you with unlimited questions
I recommend Newtown for evening drinks, after work hour drinks, light meal with friends on weekends. It is a nice place to visit and enjoy
