Thank you for life!  |  Pres

The Plaza has a new option. On weekends, Marcy is already busy. Its fauna is diverse, but with a mostly young demographic, given the musical and festive nature of some of its owners, including Chris Gilty, La Rama and T.J. Marc-Andre Patrie (Wala B) is a connoisseur of wine. Prefer Tuesdays and Wednesdays for a quiet evening!


Marcy's other partners include Julien Patenaut (who is still on the menu at Fleurs et Cateaux/Sans Soleil and System restaurants/clubs), Hideyuki Imaizumi (co-owner of Osmo and Fleurs et Cateaux/Sans Soleil), David Schminer at many of the city's best restaurants and bars, including those mentioned above. ) and chef Alex Geoffrey (Tron for short!).

The latter is a pizza lover. He was in the kitchen at Tony's last summer when Osmo was serving “pies” on the terrace. He knows the origins of many styles that have evolved over the decades and has probably tasted every pizza on the East Coast of America.

As for Marcy, her choice fell on New Jersey. This neighbor of New York is the state's best classic “tomato pie.” It is thin, simple, crisp and digestible. To make it a little more “sexy”, Alex adds buffalo milk mozzarella from the Fuoco cheese factory in Saint-Lin, in addition to Pecorino. There are four other 14-inch pizzas on the menu, at $22 each. Make your choice!

All other meals are priced under $20. These are salads, pastas, and seasonal vegetable dishes. On the wine side, restaurants are having a hard time offering five or six bottles of designer wine for less than $70 these days. This is the reality of today's market. But Julien Patenaut has made an exceptional selection that will put stars in the eyes of natural wine lovers who know their “classics”. If you want to drink on the cheap, there are three cocktails for $10, a few beers and wines of the day by the glass.

  • The first part of Marcy will soon become a daytime cafe.

  • The mezzanine is bright.  In the evening, its Tiffany lamps make the place very warm.

Soon, you'll be able to sip your rosé or Negroni on the twenty-seat terrace in the center of the plaza. It will be closed for automobile traffic from July 4 to August 25. There will also be a covered roof terrace that can add a good number of customers to the already attractive current capacity of 70 seats.

Marcy has three distinct divisions. You enter through a side called “Marco” named after the former jeweler who ran the shop in this location. We will soon be serving coffee and sandwiches during the day in this cozy space. At the end of the bar, an opening leads to a second area with a high ceiling. A beautiful mezzanine, with its retro Tiffany lamps, completes the restaurant, which evokes both an Italian-American institution frozen in time and the Chalet Bar-BQ at Notre-Dame-de-Grace with its wooden walls. The decor was designed by David Schmidt and Daniel Finkelstein (Finkel Design Company), masters of creating unique spaces. You won't want to leave!

6600, rue Saint-Hubert, Montreal
