Located downtown in the Graves 601 hotel, the restaurant is known for its New American fare and award-winning wine list. In the trendy lounge adorned with a backlit bar wall, visitors begin their Cosmos experience with handcrafted cocktails like the Brazilian Rose, made with Leblon Cachaça, guava purée, and Cointreau. Patrons then settle into plush round-back chairs in the dining room, where glass-encased lanterns and neon blue accent lights illuminate huge striped wood columns. Most diners recommend the ever-changing prix fixe menu, but those set on trying a signature dish should opt for the pan-seared duck breast.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

This Greek-owned diner has occupied the same tiny location on Sherbrooke West in NDG (Notre-Dame-de-Grace) for decades. The breakfasts—including big and gloriously unpolished affairs like the Mish-Mash (the ultimate scrambled eggs)—are justly famous, but it’s worth going just for the repartee between the counter-hands and regulars.

We loved: Home fries.
