Quebec City: Artisinal foodstuffs? Cool markets? Great eats?

micehell Oct 15, 2006 12:16 PM

Hello Chowhounds,

I'm looking for some advice on all things food in Quebec City. Not only am I looking for good places to eat while I'm here for the next 4 days but I'm also looking for the best markets in town where I can find artisinal treats. Or even better, if there are farms or vineyards in close proximity, I want to know where they are!

Regarding the restaurants I'm flexible on price, I don't mind paying for an exceptional meal, but I also appreciate the more afforable hidden gems too.

    Check out Le Clocher Penche in St Roch for very good food.
    There is an old (the oldest in North America) grocery on St. Jean (outside the walls) I can't recall the name of but it's defnitely worth checking out. See if someone remembers the name.

        We ate at Chez Victor for lunch one day and really liked the feel of the place. Burgers were great as well although the beef did taste different from that we are used to in US(we do eat grass fed beef so I don't know what the difference was).
