Ok before I start explaining my amazing experience at the Misto, I wanted to apologize to my friend Bob and his boss for taking such time to write the article. I wont start explaining why I’ve been so late because it’s not my goal to make excuses for my procrastination but I wanted to make this public to show my dear sincerity. Now that this is done, let’s start!
I’m really starting to enjoy this new section of the blog. I get to visit some amazing restaurants while meeting passionate people to enjoy some amazing food, good wine and a nice night in town. What’s not to like right?
Today I’m bringing you to the restaurant “Le Misto” situated in Montreal, on Mont-Royal street where my friend Bob le Chef work and share his passion for food with the world. He has been inviting Max and I forever but we kept pushing it because of our busy work schedule. One day, we woke up from our “work coma” and decided to start enjoying life so obviously going to Le Misto was on our “to do” list.
The place was exactly what I expected: small, friendly with some gorgeous & romantic lighting. When we got there I debated enjoying the nice terrasse (we were in the summer at that time) they have in the front (directly on Mont-Royal street) or going inside for a more relaxing and cozy night. There was less people inside so it pretty much made my choice easy. Not that I dislike being around people but I felt like having a relaxing night with my love and my friend so the less people there, the better I felt. What I realized after, is that Bob had reserved a place for us, right on the side of the window/garage door they have in the front. How thoughtful 🙂
I got to tell you… even if I didn’t knew Bob, I would be writing a positive article on this restaurant because the food is delicious and the ambiance is just perfectly intimate the way I like it. Max and I had a great service, the waiters were joking with us and were very well informed on the house menu and wine menu. Also, just the fact that they are open till midnight 7 days a week is pretty impressive for this type of establishment. The owner of the Misto is also super sweet and friendly guy… You can often share a drink with him at the bar and this is one of the reasons why I prefer small restaurants compare to the big places…. you can actually meet the owner, talk to them and discover how passionate these people are.
