My wife and I got the sand which that made them famous - smoked brisket I believe. It practically melt in your mouth. Generous helping but not overwhelming. We both ate it all! Convenient downtown location.

Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the
Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and

youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and
restaurants heavily peopled by students and young

They are owned by the same family. The steakhouse made a change and added the supper menu, where the deli did not. If i were to chose I would take the steakhouse, great food and great staff
