What I really crave is some delicious salmon tartare... I love that. Best place here for that?

    The one at Pintxo is a little less traditional but very good.

      Lemeac has a nice delicate take on it -- apparently they prepare their own. (And their salmon with poached eggs on a blin is a great brunch.) Other chowhounds might have more comparative opinions on the dinner tartare.

        Leméac's is quite good. Le P'tit Plateau sometimes has a two-salmon starter (half raw, half smoked) that, like most everything else served there, is worth a detour.

          I have friends near there - perhaps they can be convinced that a salmon tartare is what they need. (It is something they would both like)...

          Anywhere good closer to me? Radiating out from Villeray/Petite Patrie - Plateau and Mile-End also very convenient, as is Outremont. Or Rosemont.

          I am a big fan of the Tartare at Holder (and their fries are great too!). Wilson's is also very good. I didn't enjoy the tartare at Lemeac so much, because I don't particularly love truffle oil.

            Wilson's really?

            That place seems dreadful. Has anyone esle been there? Got an opinion?

              Everyone I was with was happy with their food. I just had the tartare, and it was quite good. Not my favourite, but okay.

                Masaï on Parc has a sign up announcing beef, salmon and tuna tartare. Reviews of this resto-bar are mixed. Friends who went said it was ok but many kinks remaining to iron out. Any opinions?
