Restaurant ProvisionsOutremont is a mostly residential, mostly francophone neighborhood of Montréal that in recent years has seen the opening of a number of restaurants as the gentrification of the Plateau spreads to its neighbor. Provisions is one of the new generation of restaurants, with just 28 seats and no menu. Rather, diners put themselves in the hands of chefs Pablo Rojas and Hakim Rahal for a five-course ($65) or seven-course ($75) meal. The dishes, served under a tin ceiling, are determined by what is at its peak of freshness on any given day, but you can expect exquisitely prepared fish and meat, and vegetables often in unexpected, flavorful combinations. While the courses may be small, they are rich in flavor.
