Jellyfish Crudo + Charbon – Trendy old Mtl spot

This trendy spot located in picturesque Old Montreal is one the latest restaurants to adorn one of Montreal’s most popular neighborhoods.

Opened in 2016, Jellyfish gives people a great first impression. The atmosphere is buzzing and the décor beautiful. It has a large bar in the middle of a two-level dining area. It tends to be packed most nights with a varied clientele, making it a great place to spend the evening.

As the Crudo + Charbon indicates, they serve raw dishes and charcoal-grilled dishes, or a blend of the two. The cuisine is a mix of Asian and Italian with a modern twist, offering tartars, ceviches, tatakis and carpaccio. They have great drinks with special cocktails of the night written on the board. Their menu is very much a cuisine “de partage” – sharing experience, so much so that we decided to stick with entrees only and forgo the main meal. We had some meaty oysters from Prince Edward Island and salmon tartar with lemongrass, ginger soy and pickled onions. Followed by delicious charcoaled heirloom carrots with whipped ricotta, miso, Asian glaze topped with parmesan. The hit of the night was the octopus, best I have tasted yet, cooked tempura style with caramelized onions, panca aioli and lemon hummus. Truly eye rolling. I will go back just for that dish.

We completed the meal with a beautiful and tasty Tres Leche dessert which was served like a piece of art with strawberries, green tea cream and crumble.

A must try!
