Last thursday I had the joy and pleasure of checking out Atame – a new sexy-hot-spot on Montreal’s classic plateau (and conveniently located within walking distance from mi casa).
Atame is an aphrodisiac-esque restaurant which combines tastefully selected love bites – sights, sounds, tastes and fragrances – that will take you on a deliciously sensual journey. The carefully selected ingredients and gourmet taste combinations are said to awaken your sensual side.
Here’s a run down of the menu we had the pleasure of tasting that night.
The flavour combination of the oysters (passion fruit and lychee) was unlike anything I’ve experienced before. And cocktails? Absolutely fantastic. I sampled the Love Potion and Old Fashioned (as suggested by the bartender) and they were sublime. The Old Fashioned was carefully ‘smoked’ the old fashioned way (hardy-har) by turning the glass upside-down and elevating a lit mini cigar inside the glass.
Our main courses consisted of: quail with black truffle sauce and arugula, duck breast with fig reduction on a bed of quinoa with a bed of blackberry topped greens, lobster tagliatelle with fresh peas, basil and lemon zest (om nom nom) and a fillet mignon SO tender – you could cut it with a butter knife.
Chocolate brownies with salted caramel and Amarula milk shake.
Oh…KAY! I need a cigarette.
After three sexy courses, I won’t lie – I was feeling quite amorous by the end of the evening. Now while I didn’t send out any love-drunk texts, I may have considered looking into a little digital black book.
Don’t believe me? Take the Nuda-challenge and try it for yourself!
Atame is located at 351 Duluth est. (corner of Drolet) You can call to book a reservation at 514.667.5848 or visit them online or check them out and like them on Facebook.
