Fish & Chips in Little Italy, Mile End & Outremont

Slide onto a stool around the horseshoe-shaped wooden counter and feast on tender morsels of fish and chips, served on blue-and-white checked paper in pretty wooden baskets. Bonus points for the clever spray bottles of vinegar and the range of sauces available. It's a cozy space that draws a good cross-section of Montréal society.
