LeDAiLY Description

There’s been a lot of buzz about new deli Le Daily’s opening. Possibly too much buzz? We wondered, and delayed our visit to see if the whispers were actually just overhype. Mistake. There’s a reason this all-star lineup of Francois Seguin (SOiF), Michael Chen (The CanneryLaiba) and Andrew Moo (TasteCollective) – a team that oozes creative deliciousness – has already succeeded in packing out every one of the 20+ seats at all hours of the day since soft opening began in mid-April. They are crushing it, pumping out shining, glorious tributes to all things lunch that we haven’t seen the likes of since Madison Kitchen

Le Daily is technically a deli, but that’s sort of like saying Bill Gates is kind of wealthy. In reality, it’s an homage to the deli tradition, whose gluttonous, cholesterol-laden pleasures are elevated with unrivaled ingredients. If it can’t be made, sourced or presented in the absolute best way, it’s not going on the menu. 

The humbly decorated, white-tiled, planter-filled space has a Montreal aesthetic – it’s old school yet contemporary, quaint yet cosmopolitan, cozy yet stylish, bold yet modest. The simple, brown barstool seating throughout is functional rather than decorative, encouraging guests to eat, enjoy and then get out for the next round of hungry diners. It knows what it is and doesn’t try to be what it’s not.
