This historic steakhouse in a low-ceilinged, stone-walled Old Montreal
heritage building has second-to-none atmosphere. The rib-eye steak is the stuff of legend, but so are the Gibby’s salad that comes with every order (served in chilled pewter plates) and the Monte Carlo potato, which unlike the one at Moishe’s, comes replete with chunky bacon bits. The desserts are worth keeping room for; the chocolate mousse in particular, or the vanilla ice-cream profiteroles with home-made chocolate sauce. The best fun you can have is by ordering a spiked coffee from the table-side rolling bar, which involves fancy handiwork and lots of flambéing.
