5 top Laval restaurants – There has never been a better time to live in Laval. In the last years, numerous restaurants that have nothing to envy to the Montreal’s opened their doors for the enjoyment of North Shore residents and also, anyone wishing to experience an evening of : Christmas shopping, illumi by Cavalia and memorable restaurant experiences. Here are 5 top Laval restaurants that are worth the drive:
What happens when A5 Hospitality (Flyjin, Hà, Kampaï Garden, Jatoba, etc.) team up with celebrity chef Antonio Park and superstar designer Zebulon Perron to open their first restaurant in the North Shore? An amazing establishment that combines amazing food and spectacular decor. Westwood is both inspired by the Wynwood district in Miami and the Californian vibes of Palm Springs. You go there with your loved ones or your friends (the place is 18+) for a fun and delicious dinner that features earth and sea inspired dishes in a vibrant atmosphere.
It is hard to describe in words how impressive Miss Wong is : you have to see it to believe it. When you walk in that massive and impressive space, it is like you were entering another dimension. Offering different spaces and ambiances (bar, lounge, dining room), Miss Wong is a restaurant that is perfect for a stylish date night or a festive evening among friends. There you can enjoy different types of Asian dishes while feeling like you are right in the middle of Old Shangai.
Gatto Matto is an elegant Italian eatery where you can enjoy fresh pastas and home-made pizzas in a pink paradise decor. The very girly restaurant that expands on a terrace in season is open both for lunch and dinner is also offering daily specials (our favourite: 15$ Sunday table d’hôte). Enjoy an antipasti platter or a wide selection of crudos, accompanies, of course, by a pizza, Gatto Matto’s speciality dish. And do not forget to take pictures in this Instagram-worthy decor.
After the success of its two first Montreal locations, LOV (that stands for Local, Organic and Vegan) expanded and opened in Centropolis Laval last Spring. Offering the same gorgeous floral-inspired decor and all-vegan menu, LOV Laval offers a wide outdoor terrace and an open-air look and feel. Open for brunch, lunch, and dinner, enjoy LOV at any time of the day and be amazed by their twist on botanic cuisine.
Oregon isn’t your traditional wine bar. Nestled in the middle of anonymous shops aligned in an outdoor shopping mall alongside boulevard Curé-Labelle, Oregon is far different inside that it is from the outside. This well-thought wine bar serves an interesting wine by the glass selection, and a bistro-style menu that will certainly please the entire crew. A discounted 25$ 2-course table d’hôte is also offered after 9:30 PM on weekends for those late nighters.
