Le Lab Review
Fabien Maillard is Montréal's mixologist extraordinaire, and the name of his unpretentious bar is entirely apt. Creating cocktails is his passion and it's shared by the friendly, skilled staff. The potent potions—including a $28 Zombie loaded with liquor—are inspired by everything from old, classic recipes to the fruits of the season, as in the $13 Threesome, with fresh raspberry, blackberry, and strawberry purées. The entire menu changes twice a year, and there are also monthly specials. Call to reserve on weekends; its packed despite being off the beaten track.
