Fodor's Review

It takes a lot of nerve to open a French bistro in Montréal’s most voraciously English-speaking neighborhood, but Brasserie Central spruces up snobbish Westmount with a refreshing menu that was quick to convert even the most skeptical ones. Decidedly French but very Parisian, this black-and-white, light-filled brasserie has, however, a slightly deceiving tendency to appropriate classic dishes and twist them beyond recognition (niçoise salad, when served with octopus and feta, is not much niçoise at all); not that the final result isn’t mouth-watering, but a rose by any other name just wouldn’t be a rose. Delicious dishes, but they could benefit from more realistic names. Budget-strapped visitors should consider the $20 two-course lunchtime table d'hôte.
