Griffintown: Our take-out suggestions
The Griffintown neighbourhood has become a popular neighbourhood in recent years. Once almost exclusively industrial, this area is becoming increasingly residential, with all the amenities essential to a vibrant neighbourhood life. Old warehouses are being converted into apartment buildings, art galleries and restaurants, all of which contribute to the neighbourhood’s unique character. Like its neighbours in the South-West, Griffintown is full of good places to go for take-out.
The restaurants in Griffintown are diverse and run by real enthusiasts. One can think of chef Sophie Tabet (Chez Sophie), who worked in Michelin star restaurants before opening her own address in Montreal, or the Flores family, originally from the Philippines, who bring a lot of passion and energy to the neighbourhood with Junior. There is something for everyone, no matter the time of day.
For other suggestions, consult the general list of open restaurants that offer a take-out menu. If you’re craving a particular dish (burger, dumplings, sushi, pizza…), we recommend consulting our other lists of good take-out places, specifically designed to give you ideas in the particular context of the pandemic. It’s always great to discover your neighbourhood and the best it has to offer.
La Bête à Pain
Bakery – $ La Bête à Pain is one of the city’s most popular bakeries and is also on our list for the best croissants in Montreal. Like its Ahuntsic counterpart, La Bête à Pain in Griffintown is an organic bakery-restaurant-caterer.
Cafe/lunch – $-$$ Mano Cornuto takes inspiration from Italian cafes to bring warmth to the neighbourhood. There are a few pasta dishes, colourful salads, generous sandwiches, amazing focaccia, and good pastries. Also, their coffee is consistently excellent. Since the beginning of the pandemic, the establishment has also transformed itself into a small boutique/grocery store and has just launched a website to highlight this new offering.
Filipino Cuisine – $-$$ At Junior’s, you’ll find comforting Filipino dishes. The Flores family’s joie de vivre is contagious and you can see and taste it in the beautiful and tasty dishes that the house prepares with love.
Perles et Paddock
Seafood/Share – $$ (Back on January 13). Perles et Paddock is open for take-out, and you’ll be sure to find delicious seafood dishes on the menu, which they’re known for. Their beautiful wine selection is also available, as well as four-course menu options for two (which includes a few vegetarian options).
Comfort food – $$ We truly miss sitting at the Bird Bar, which is on our list of the most beautiful restaurants in Montreal. However, we’re happy to be able to enjoy their delicious fried chicken for take-out, which is some of the best in the city!
Greek Cuisine – $$ Petros is an excellent Greek address in Griffintown. The establishment has two sister addresses on the island of Montreal and it’s not for nothing; lovers of Greek cuisine particularly appreciate the authenticity of their dishes. An extensive menu is available for take-out.
Gastronomic cuisine – $$-$$$ Chef Sophie Tabet has a solid reputation, having traveled extensively and worked in several Michelin-starred establishments. It’s no surprise that the dishes she prepares in her restaurant are simply delicious. The menu features great gourmet options, as well as a grocery section where you can purchase sauces, soups and salad dressings at very reasonable prices.
