Birthday Celebration restaurant in Quebec City?
My husband and I are going to be in Quebec City for his birthday (we live in foodie heaven, San Francisco). We're staying at Auberge Sainte-Antoine and it's our first trip sans enfants for about 2 years (!!). I'd like to take him someplace wonderful, not too stuffy though. I have reservations at L'Initiale and Panache, but wonder what people's thoughts are on their relative merits. We will be in QC for a total of 3 nights, so other suggestions for other nights (and they don't have to all be posh) would also be welcome. Thanks!
Your at the Chateau? Au Anciens Canadiens just up the road is real nice, Le Charles Baillairgé in the Clarendon Hotel (oldest dining room in Canada), Gambrinus in the front of your hotel, Au Parmesan again near your hotel is great for veal... but I would go to the Voodoo on Laurier (you can walk there) for cool tuneage, people and food. Or you can come to my house and I'll cook something simple but filling :)
