I can't think of any good Italian restaurant in the heart of downtown apart from Brigade Pizzeria Napolitaine. Most of the high-end Italian restaurants are located in the Old-Montreal and in Little Italy. Former head chef Adam Zaitouni at Grinder is the new chef of the restaurant-bar Vicolo. It is situated on René-Lévesque, near the Bell center. I was not be able to attend the grand opening, but a special thanks to my food blogging from Un Voyage Gastronomique who took all the great pictures below while I was out of town.
The restaurant will be offering comfort urban Italian food while enjoying a good drink. It also opened for lunch to grab a quick bite. Chef Zaitouni will be offering a menu complete of antipasti, Primi, Secondi and thin crust pizzas. It's definitely worth for a quick lunch or for an after-work dinner.
