Le Roi du Roy Est
351 Rue Roy E, Montréal, QC H2W 1N1
Pluck any Montrealer from our pot-hole ridden streets and ask them how they like to spend their weekend evenings. I guarantee you 3 out of 4 will say ”with a glass of wine and a pizza (to myself)” or the equivalent in French. I’ll get back to you with the hard data some day, but for now let’s trust the informal survey I conducted with my closest friends (they are very representative of the Montreal population….promise).
If you are part of the (clearly well-researched) 75%, you NEED to make your way over to Bar Watts in the Plateau. Previously Salon Officiel, Watts launched in style last week with pizza, cocktails, and tons of bloggers & media to recount it all back to you. They offer seven types of pizza and a few other Italian menu items. I respect the fact that they are keeping the menu small and focusing on a selection of local wines and well thought-out cocktails. The Milk & Bone cocktail with lime & coconut was my favourite of the night. The pizzas are thin crust and well-done, just how I like it!
Pizzas are half price from 6-11pm on Wednesday’s and Sunday’s. Try giving me a reason not to go. That’s what I thought. See you at Watts!
Dress: Cool & casual. The atmosphere is very ”Plateau”, so be sure to dress the part!
