[Greek: Rodos] a family affair

IMG_1139Running a restaurant is incredibly hard work.

It eats up a ridiculous amount of time, represents a crazy amount of pressure, and would certainly not work without the unconditional support of friends and family. So when one’s progeny decides to take over the business and give it another generation of history, it’s no longer simply a commercial success story, it’s a matter of legacy and pride.

and worth a serious celebration.

After a summer of renovation, Rodos re-opened to the public, with the daughter and her groom now in charge. To celebrate the new milestone, media and bloggers were invited to the biggest Greek feast of all time.

Greeted with a few glasses of Atlantis, the lovely light and citrusy dry wine the SAQ fanatics among us know too well, we quickly took our seats at the long communal table. Dolmadakias, fried eggplants, braised lamb shoulder; we indulged like royals as endless Greek delights followed each other throughout the night. The grilled perch was particularly satisfying: tender and savory, it was served with a delicate side of beans and pancetta. If you are visiting Rodos anytime soon, don’t leave without having one of their famous Loukoumades for dessert. These little donuts, swamped in honey and sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon, were simply addictive.

A dinner at Rodos is like eating at your favorite aunt’s place. The atmosphere is warm and kind and the food, authentic.

To the many more generations of Rodos to come, Yamas!RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 20 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 27 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 28 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 13 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 10 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 15IMG_1221 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 18 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 14 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 26IMG_1146IMG_1192 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 12 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 9 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 7 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 8 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 6 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 5IMG_1294 RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 3RODOS Restaurant montreal food snob blog 2
