Travi’s menu pays homage to his home of Boston and the emerging flavors and culture of Montreal. With many exciting options that are perfect for sharing, find an array of house-smoked meats and fish, and signature dishes like crispy oyster sliders; clams casino with cracker stuffing and bacon; Portuguese mussels with linguica chickpeas and beer; Applewood smoked brisket with three mustards, in addition to other small plate, entree and bar snack (think malt vinegar pork rinds and smoked meat poutine) options. The bar offers ample seating and features a variety of hand-crafted cocktails that incorporate house-made tonic, syrups and juices. Here are highlights from our first visit there.

Kentucky Daisy (rye, cynar, rosemary, mint, lemon, barrel aged bitters).
Saskatchewan Summer (rye, cardamom, honey, fernet, forbidden bitters).
Maple Eggs: Scrambled eggs on top a maple custard with crispy bacon.
Malt Vinegar Pork Rinds: The perfect crunch bar snack.
Smoked Meats Poutine: French fries dotted with cheese curds, and gravy made from drippings from the house smoked meats on the menu.
Chefs special of scallops tossed with olive oil, blood orange, mint and breadcrumbs.
House Smoked Sturgeon slices served with thin Johnny cakes.
Monkfish Fran çaise: pieces of monkfish served over garlic spinach and a potato purée that has mozzarella cheese curds whipped in.
Apple cider donuts served over apple butter and a slide of salted caramel sauce.

Littlefork is open nightly for dinner thereafter. They also feature a late-night menu on Fridays and Saturdays after 10 p.m.; brunch is planned to arrive soon.
