Old Montreal always has a handful of hotspots worth visiting, each with its own flair. Some are more touristy while others are great for locals and visitors alike. In that vein, we recently published an article with a video where you can watch Chef Liam‘s recent interview with Dan Lima of Rosewood. Rosewood is a bar and restaurant known for its sophisticated pub food and giant HD screen. Right next door to Rosewood is another great eatery and bar called Joverse. I was recently invited to try their unique concept called “The Whole Damn Menu.”
What is “The Whole Damn Menu?”
The idea is that at any given time, when you go with five to seven friends, you can share every item on the menu. The menu I tried had 15 different items but that may vary as the options will change. The price is $198 + tax + tip.
You sit down, order drinks, hang out with your friends, and just order “The Whole Damn Menu.”
I laughingly contrast this to a going to a sushi restaurant with six friends where it could take us half an hour to decide on what we want. The concept here has the opposite effect. You sit down, order drinks, hang out with your friends, and just order “The Whole Damn Menu.”
The Joverse Menu
Here are photos from my outing. Note that the main photo (see above) is a churros with chocolate dip which is on the menu. Also, I have posted a bunch of photos below but it is certainly not representative of the entire list of menu items.
Should you go?
Yes! Review the photos and if the concept is for you, then go! Joverse is a trendy Old Montreal restaurant and bar with an extensive selection of wine. I enjoyed the food and the concept of having one “damn menu” really simplifies things. The restaurant is located at the edge of Old Montreal, just south of Downtown Montreal so its pretty central to hang out in either area afterwards.
