Restaurant Review: Restaurant Le Slang

Restaurant Le Slang

Fresh & Creative in a Surprising Locale.

Notre-Dame-de-Grâce 5669 Ave De Monkland Montreal, QC 
(514) 600-1600

Monkland's latest addition is Restaurant Le Slang LabOmanger. The restaurant has a terrace overlooking the charming street, but take a step inside and you won't believe you're on Monkland anymore. Adorned with retro light-fixtures, and exposed-brick walls, the place has a really trendy, industrial feel. Knowing that this used to be a video rental store deems the design even more impressive. In tandem with its laboratory theme, tables are set with beakers as both candle holders, and water pitchers, and small details throughout the menu contribute to the feel as well. A brightly-lit, white open-kitchen is the focal point of the restaurant, contrasting the rest of the dimly-lit interior.

The menu is creative with items including grilled octopus with lemon pop rocks, onion soup dumplings, and bacon wrapped matzoh balls. The drink menu also aims to please with a bacon caesar (YES...I said bacon) and a mojito served as a slushie. This is definitely a welcomed-addition to Monkland Ave. and will give young NDG locals the nearby hotspot they've been waiting for. See what we ordered below!

Reservations: Yes! But they don't take reservations for the terrace as of now (first come, first serve)
Date night: Definitely. It has an intimate atmosphere and unique drink menu. Sure to please!
Attire: We're still on Monkland, so no need to get TOO fancy. Trendy/sophisticated and you're set.
The damage: $$$ (definitely more expensive than the typical neighbourhood restaurant, but there's a price to pay for style and atmosphere)
Bonus: Cute terrace.
