Meet the owner

Among the first oyster bars to open in Montreal and certainly ahead of the panoply of trends abundant today, Maestro SVP has been offering the best seafood, with plenty of options to spare, to Montreal for just over two decades. “When I started in oysters, a lot of people were convinced that it was only a seasonal food,” says owner Ilene Polansky. “They thought you could only have them four months of the year and then jump from one thing to the other, but they couldn’t have been more wrong.”

With the advent of more advanced forms of cold storage, oysters are available year-round from a broad swath of the world’s finest waters. “I fell in love with them when I first started working in restaurants and when I owned a bar just out of university,” says Ilene. “I knew that restaurant service was far more my speed. The amount of care and attention to great food that you can give, the sense of home you can develop are unparalleled, not to mention that I like to get a good night’s sleep!”
