St-Henri restaurant Sumac packs flavours from all over the Syria, Lebannon, Israel and Iraq into its healthy, homestyle comfort food.
Summer time in the city means being outside as much as possible. For those who are loosely employed, that means going to the pool and doing “work” while working on that tan. But for those stuck in an office all day, an evening meal at a local terrasse is a warm weather luxury. With more and more restaurants putting tables and chairs on the sidewalk in front of their establishments, the choices of so-called “terrasses” to frequent have practically doubled over the past few years. Now, there are some obvious favourites out there— idyllic summer spots with picturesque back gardens and the like—but not all terrasse fare is created equal. Here are my picks this year for great food at good prices.
