Beyond the Plate: Good Vibes at Mano Cornuto

Griffintown’s Mano Cornuto is the neighbourhood cafe you wish you had.

No bad vibes here – just simple Italian home cooking kicked up a notch or two. Come in for an espresso and homemade focaccia in flavours like pistachio butter & basil.  The Day Menu is loaded with irresistible Italian staples like antipasto, burrata salad and sandwiches like the Classico: mortadella, pancetta, arugula, truffle honey, artichoke spread, plus hand-rolled pasta and desserts.

At night the menu packs a little more punch. Grab a spritz (there’s five on offer) and a starter of  Nordic shrimp with fennel cream, charred fennel, dandy greens, and peperonata. Move on to whole sea bass, with anchovy butter and walnut gremolata.  And, of course, a rocking little wine list. If you go now, you might catch the end of rhubarb season and the Gelatina di Fragole e Rabarbaro aka strawberry and rhubarb “Jello” with whipped cream and basil.  Everything’s so much better in Italian.
