Chez Alexandre – A Parisian Brasserie in Montreal!

Posted on October 14th, 2009 by .

When a restaurant has made the same location home for 32 years, it earns the right to be called an institution. That’s the case for Chez Alexandre, a classic Parisian Brasserie located in the heart of Montréal.

Iconic Chez Alexandre serves up classic French cuisine in a stylish setting. Politicians and French celebrities are some of its biggest fans, making it a must-stop whenever they’re in town. When it comes to keeping its reputation red-hot, Chez Alexandre hits all the right notes. The kitchen is open almost every night until 2am (it closes at 1am on Sunday). It boasts a lovely patio, as well as an inviting cigar lounge for those wishing to unwind with a Cuban. And let’s not forget the impressive wine card! According to Daniel, one of the associates, they sell a few bottles of the coveted Chateau Mouton Rothschild 2004 every week. That’s a $755 bottle of wine, people! But don’t worry, they have plenty of tasty wines for every budget.

Consumed with Parisian flair, I ordered traditional French dishes, starting with an exquisite foie gras. Black cod with Porto sauce followed and proceeded to melt in my mouth. The service was professional and seamless: the garçon offered tableside seasoning for my Angus beef tartar (see picture). Can you say delightful?

PS: Don’t leave without trying the dark chocolate fondant. I can’t get enough of this popular dessert and this is certainly one of Montréal’s best.
