L'Os a Moelle? Wednesday night special dinner (montreal foodie)

  • 9

Can someone tell me how much the prix fixe is at L'Os a Moelle?

I am arrive late on Tuesday and have reservations at Chez Denise at 12:30am. Is that about right for dining there late?

Also we want to go for a long meal on Wednesday and are trying to get reservations (6 people) at L'Os a Moelle.

Beyond those two I am going to try to famous falafel everyone is talking about, and go to a few of the markets.

Sound good for two days? No need for me too be too ambitions, right?

Thank you for all of your help.

Kate

  1. I last ate there in September 2004. At that time it was 38e for 6 courses, 2 choices per course except dessert which had 4 choices. Wines were very reasonably priced.

    Metro stop is Lourmel. I liked this restaurant very much. Thierry Faucher (chef / owner) is a trainee of Christian Constant from the Hotel Crillion days.

      loved this restaurant when we there last year. i believe the prix fixe was 39 euros, and a bargain in every way. it is small so with six, don't go without reservations. they have a winebar across the street which is also charming.

        I love that place too. I was there last a couple of years ago. The staff was incredibly friendly and the food was wonderful. Their melon soup was excellent. While in Paris, I eat there often. There is a stairway under the bar that leads to their wine place across the street.

    2. All great ideas, and keeping it easy is another one.

      On wednesday morning, there is the market Avenue du President Wilson between Alma and Trocadero where you will find the vegetables of Joël Thiébault, whose clients include Pierre Gagnaire, Alain Passard, Pascal Barbot, etc. He grows his vegetables in Carrieres-sur-Seine, 8km west from the market.It's easy to spot: it's the biggest stand with the biggest queue.

      15th arrondissement alternatives to l'Os a Moelle include le Troquet (40€ menu) and le Beurre Noisette (check them on www.viamichelin.com for more info). Also l'Antre-amis (http://www.lantreamis.fr/menu.htm) is unsufficiently known.

        Is the market Avenue du President Wilson still available and worth going? We would love to check it out and pick up some gourmet vegetables towards the end of August if it's open. Thanks.

          Sure it is. Wed and Sat mornings. Worth seeing, also for the chic clientèle (and sometimes maids of the rich 16th's arr. residents).

            Thanks for the link - we can't wait!

            The market is open but its main draws (Thiébault and the organic stand up the road) are on holiday in August. They will be back at the end of the month, though.

            1. re: souphie

              Would Thiébault be there on Sat Aug 22 or Wed Aug 26?
