The handsome doorman in uniform is a cue that this dining experience will be a classy affair, though Moishes is the type of place that quickly feels like your second home. Nestled on the second floor on a busy strip of Boulevard Saint-Laurent, visitors gather in the cloak room-slash-waiting room before being shown to their table. A movie should be made about the conversations that can be eavesdropped in that room. This is a steakhouse renowned for not only its perfectly aged and spiced rib steak, but also its sides, like fried verenikas, grilled oyster mushrooms and potato latkes. This place may have been opened in 1938, but it stays up to date with a fresh décor and new menu items (like the delish lobster roll appetizer).
