Bistro in Rue St-Denis & the Village

With nearly 20 years under its belt, this gay bar-bistro has earned a spot in Village hearts for its chilled atmosphere, live DJs, patio seating, cocktails and wide-ranging menu, including salmon bowls, steaks, burgers, pizzas and some good vegetarian options. A stylish preclub pit stop or a good-value spot the next day for set lunches (from $12.75).
