Pineau: the restaurant’s name is both a nod to the grape as to its location. Think local, creative cuisine, original house cocktails, clever wine pairings and attentive service in a chic, unassuming atmosphere on Papineau Street.
Chef Sarak Tiann draws inspiration from the city itself to create alluring and accessible dishes. With an eye to seasonal local produce, he incorporates unusual ingredients, such as yuzu or sansho peppers, to reflect Montréal’s multicultural nature.
Offering a 5-course tasting menu and a wine pairing menu, the Pineau culinary experience begins with snacks, such as olives or oysters, before moving on to starters the likes of grilled calamari or smoked eggplant. Main dishes include delicately firm halibut accompanied by purple cauliflower florets and king mushrooms alongside a moist effiloché of duck with shitake mushrooms, parsnip purée and brioche.
An array of private import organic, bio-dynamic and natural wines by the bottle or glass are offered alongside a list of original cocktails and local craft beer on tap.
Pineau’s understated décor with warm wood accents and thoughtful lighting perfectly showcases the artistry on the plate. Greenery and cork wall art complete a dining scene that compels patrons to return again and again.
