If you have been following me for quite a while, you know how much I love discovering and trying out new restaurants. Whether it is for brunch, lunch, cocktail time or even dinner, you can always count on the extreme foodie that I am. A few weeks ago, I was approached by The Keg Steakhouse & Bar to discover their new Cocktail Hour which I could not refuse! Located in the very heart of downtown Montreal, 5 Place Ville-Marie, The Keg is a premium casual dining restaurant. The venue is beautiful, it is very sophisticated yet friendly and welcoming. They also have a gorgeous terrasse/longue area which is perfect for a date or even to grab a bite while catching up with friends.
The Keg very kindly offered us a beautiful assortment of starters and Keg classics. Having food allergies (eggs), I was incredibly impressed by their food policies. The Keg have a full list of the ingredients in each meal and they even offered to replace the ingredients for my convenience! My sister and I chose a mix of meals to fully taste and review their menu. Everything was delicious. The filet mignon, the shrimps, the tuna… they were all incredibly flavourful. My favourite meal was definitely the Surf + Turf and my sister fell in love with the Tuna Tacos. Everything simply melts in your mouth!
Since we were invited for their Cocktail Hour, my sister and I had to taste their bar menu 😉 We decided to first choose their featured cocktails. We ordered the Strawberry Fizz and the Mango Mojito. These cocktails are like summer in a drink. They taste delicious and they are so refreshing! Definitely must-try drinks if you go to The Keg. And to finish the evening on a good note, we ended up having more classic cocktails; the Keg Margarita and the Famous Keg Caesar.
What We Ate
Surf + Turf: two mini filet medallions and a 3 ounce Canadian Atlantic lobster tail.
Tuna Tacos: Ahi tuna on warm tortillas with cabbage slaw and cilantro. Served with jalapeños maple aioli.
Shrimp Cocktail: Chilled Black Tiger shrimp with a zesty martini cocktail sauce.
Scallops & Bacon: Served with a zesty martini cocktail sauce.
Panachée Salad: Spring lettuce and garden vegetables with homemade vinaigrette.
If you are looking for a great restaurant in downtown Montreal, I highly suggest The Keg Steakhouse & Bar. Their menu beautifully combines freshness and flavours, and will leave you with a very happy stomach 😉
