Branzino meal at Impasto

During our time in Montreal, we took a trip over to Little Italy. We wanted to enjoy a fancy lunch so we researched which restaurants would be available since a lot of Italian restaurants only open for dinner and need reservations. We knew Impasto would be serving lunch until 2pm so we’d have time to go to the Jean Talon Market first and then enjoy our lunch.

Benno runs the show, caring for the cows, plowing the cornfields and potatoes. They’re full blown farmers.
