Le Vin Papillion, Montreal, 9/3/15

Exterior

A moderately sized place, if you count the large patio in the back. They have also added a room next door but it does not yet have a license to sell wine so it hardly counts yet – but soon. It is known for its vegetables some of which are harvested from the garden at Joe Beef and others are purchased from local farmers. Either way they stress fresh and seasonal.

We started with the lobster Aioli which was filled with fresh vegetables, lobster and clams all with a house made aioli for dipping.  All very tasty and simple.  We then had the fried artichoke which was covered with garlic butter and Parmesan. It was excellent and unlike anything I’ve had before.  It was lick the bowl goodness.  Lastly we had the tomato on bread with mussels and lardo. Plump mussels and incredibly tasty lardo made this dish a real hit. An interesting wine selection complimented the meal and along with outstanding service. A great place for a snack and a drink!
