Across from the Bell Centre, where Champions rejoice...
...STEAKHOUSE 1221: AN INSTANT INSTITUTION
Walking past the window full of freshly butchered meat, you enter through revolving glass doors into an expansive three-floored restaurant where the air is thick and heavy, filled with the unmistakable smell of wood charcoal grilled meat. Its warm dark wood and brick interior, open kitchen, and the hum of business banter compliment the menu and extensive fine wine & Scotch selection. 1221 is loved by the business crowd not only because of its terrific steaks, raw bar, cigar lounge or large terrace but because of its location. Sitting in the heart of Montreal’s business district on the corner of Drummond at 1221 Rene Levesque Boulevard directly across from the Bell Centre, home of the Montreal Canadiens, it is the perfect spot for a power lunch, after-work drinks or a pre-game dinner.
Our dry-aged steaks and culinary guilty pleasures, attentive dual waiter service and the convivial and energetic ambience of our landmark restaurant create the ultimate culinary experience. Additionally, our Cigar Bar offers fine cigars from Cuba in a comfortable setting while our Veranda offers cigar smoking and dining in a relaxed outdoor setting.
THE 4,000 MILE JOURNEY OF...
...THE NEW BREED
1221 is a CARNIVORE’s ULTIMATE PARADISE. Our knowledgeable and attentive servers bring forth a cart laden with different cuts of raw USDA prime dry-aged steak, which range from the 10-ounce Petit Mignon to the “Cadillac” Porterhouse at 28 ounces. The LaFrieda Black Angus USDA Prime Kansas Cut and bone-in Rib Eye are our most popular cuts, while our Australian Oakleigh Ranch Wagyu and American Snake River Gold Label Wagyu often sell-out quickly, so call to reserve!
In our relentless pursuit to bring you the world’s finest steaks, 1221 has partnered to create an EXCLUSIVE CANADIAN agreement with world-renown butcher, Pat LaFrieda Meat Purveyors (stars of Food Network’s hit reality show “MEAT MEN”), to bring you the finest USDA Prime steaks. Our Black Angus cattle, hand-selected by cowhands for us on a Kansas farm, are 100% free of antibiotics and hormones. The farm is designed by Dr. Temple Grandin to assure the humane treatment, integrity & quality of our new breed. Thankfully, the cattle do not need to walk the entire journey from farm to your plate!
