  1. Hard question! They are all good!

    - Brunoise for a cozy, yet outstanding food experience
    - La Chronique, for an upscale ($$$$) gastronomic dinner
    - Leméac, for an upscale bistro, very good food and service

    1. Just got back Monday from Montreal. The very best of all the restos was au pied de cochon. It was fabulous...earthy, delicious and superfresh. The legendary pork chop is divine!! They slaughter their own pigs, jar their own plum tomatoes, make their own ice cream, etc. Their veggies are delivered daily by a farmer who supplies a few other restos in the area. I recommend it more than the others.

      I ate at Lemeac which was good but not on a par foodwise as au pied where you get more bang for your buck. Lemeac was also incredibly noisy so we couldn't carry on much of a conversation.

      1. I have not been to Lemeac, but I absolutely LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Chez L'Epcier. It's romantic and upscale yet still manages to be quaint and relaxing. The food is to die for and the service is excellent. A must for someone who enjoys wine.
