A fairly easy restaurant to find, it sits on Lakeshore Road in Burlington facing Lake Ontario. They also have a patio section out front for those breezy summer days. Our party of 6 decided to sit inside. We definitely made the right choice because the rain came down hard halfway through our meal. The décor inside is classic with dark wood paneling, chandeliers and a luxurious bar. The menu reflects the décor with classic North American comfort food. I’m severly late on this review because I came here back in 2012!
Although my visit to Montreal was short, I made sure to check out some famous landmarks and restaurants. After visiting the well known deli, Schwartz’s, Chinatown and the shopping mecca on Saint Catherine Street, we headed out of the downtown core to Le Plateau-Mont-Royal. It was a bit tricky finding the restaurant because there isn’t a sign out front. The only indication of the restaurant was the word ‘L’EXPRESS’ tiled on the floor in front of the restaurant. I guess this place is a hidden gem!
