November 4, 2013 — At EVOO, chefs Sophie Ouellet and Peter Saunders invite guests to experience a unique variety of French cuisine infused with traditional Irish and southern Mediterranean flavours. A recent addition to Montréal’s constantly evolving gastronomy scene, EVOO has carved out its own niche in a relatively short amount of time.
Brunch, served on Saturday and Sunday, is a favourite among Montréal’s knowledgeable foodies. On the menu are specialties including Le Full Irish, a plate of Gaspor sausage, fried egg, blood sausage, marinated piglet liver, Colcannon, tomato, and grilled soda bread, and the the ever-popular, NutellOO, a smooth, in-house variation of the popular commercial hazelnut-chocolate spread.
During the week, EVOO serves up equally satisfying lunch (Wednesday to Friday) and dinner (Wednesday to Monday) menus, prepared with both seasonal and locally sourced products.
The proximity of the restaurant to the bustling Atwater Market and the picturesque Lachine Canal make it a convenient and rewarding before-or-after-activity destination within the hip and vibrant Saint-Henri–Petite-Bourgogne–Pointe-Saint-Charles district of Montréal's Sud-Ouest borough. EVOO's elegant lines and relaxed atmosphere are conducive to fine eating, drinking, and living. The venue is also the best place to go to find out exactly what the name, EVOO, means.
