Plateau Mont-Royal

Schwartz's

3895 St. Laurent Blvd.
Montreal, Quebec, H2W 1X9, Canada
TEL: (514) 842-4813

Opened in 1928, this kosher-style Jewish deli marinates its meat for 10 full days before hot-smoking it. The preservative-free beef brisket (similar to pastrami) is ordered by the fat content: either fat, medium-fat, medium, or lean. All tables are communal; counter seats overlook the busy meat-slicing area. The classic order is a smoked-meat sandwich with a side of fries and half-sour pickles. Daily lunch lines form along Montreal’s “Main Street,” Saint-Laurent Boulevard, so in 2008 the restaurant expanded with a take-out counter next door. By noon, there's still an hour-or-more wait.

Insider Tip:

To minimize your wait time in line, arrive by 11:30 a.m.
