Arthurs Nosh Bar
Stray from smoked meat at this updated Montreal-Jewish lunch counter from Joe Beef vets Raegan Steinberg and Alex Cohen. The Moroccan toast offers thick-sliced challah with a tangle of Israeli salad, chickpeas and a poached egg on top. facebook.com/arthursmtl.
The signature at pastry chef Nick Kemball’s bakery is brioche feuilletée, a flaky croissant-brioche love child. Try it with the addictive hot toddy marmalade, infused with smoky Lapsang Souchong tea. libertinebakehouse.com.
