This splashy downtown restaurant is packed with local businesspeople at lunchtime and a partying crowd at night—and kids love it, too. It claims to take its cue from American diners, but that goes only as far as its use of booths for some of the seating and its enormous portions; you’d be hard pressed to find an American diner with a marble bar, sparkly chandeliers, and reputation for killer fish tacos. Choices include salads, sandwiches, burgers, pastas, and specialties such as lamb shanks, diver scallops, and chicken schnitzel and spaetzle. If you have the stomach for it, try the so-called “R-rated shakes” such as The Beaux Dimanches: a concoction of Montréal-made Sortilège maple whiskey, coconut cream, and vanilla ice cream.
