You won't find this restaurant by walking around. You need a recommendation to get there and enjoy tasty dishes prepared fresh for you. The host was fun and friendly, but most importantly, the food was good. That's all you need to know, other that you...More

Carte Blanche is the new leader of Montreal's Bistronomie trend.

Lunch is bistro style with a pre-fixed menu at unbeatable value. The chef and owner (elected 2010 Chef of the Year by the Society of Chefs) will welcome you in the evening with a more elaborate selection of fine cuisine.

All is served in a contemporary decor (finalist at the 2006 Creativity Montreal Design contest) and relaxing atmosphere.

Carte Blanche is ideal for romantic diners as well as business meetings. The restaurant can also be reserved for cocktails, happenings, group lunch or dinner.
