I'm looking for other BYOW places like Le Colombe and Zest De Folie. Any thoughts???

    Le P'tit Plateau is amazingly consistent. If anything, the food is better than ever, with a number of more modern dishes joining the more traditional southwest French fare. And they refreshed their decor and stemware during their summer holiday. The main thing is to go to the second seating, so you don't get the bum's rush at 8:30.

    For other ideas, see the many recent discussions on the subject. For example:
    Search the board for BYOB, BYOW, BYO and *apporter* or *apportez* for more.

      We just had an excellent meal at Au P'tit Plateau . I don't know what it was like before but both my magret stuffed with foie gras and my wife's veal were memorable and I look forward to going back the next time I am in Montreal. Service was friendly and straightforward

      Bleu Raisin is amazing. (http://www.lebleuraisin.com/


      I also like Les Infidèles. (http://www.lesinfideles.ca/)

        I used to love "Le P'tit Plateau" but I haven't been in a while and I hear it's not a stellar as it once was... L'Entrepont has been recommended by two foodie friends (warning: they don't take all major credit cards; call to check about paying).

          I recently went to Le P'tit Plateau can had a delightful meal. My appetizer of green beans and smoked duck topped with foie gras au torchon with an onion confit dressing was divine.

            I second Le P'tit. The food is very simple, but immaculately executed with no pretension. I had the escargots, the notorious duck confit (which has been discussed here and elsewhere), and a fantastic prune-phyllo dessert with candied orange peel and armagnac ice cream; and may I say this was one of the most memorable dining experiences I've had in Montreal. What I really like about the place is the lack of pretension; it is honest cooking. Some people have issues with "the service", but for me their level of service is excellent: attentive, polite, caring, but with a sense of pride that leaves no room for the standard North American ass-kissing that you see elsewhere. I want my food, I don't need to be worshipped, and I can hold my own door or chair. Bring a good robust wine and you'll be in heaven.

            L'Entrepont takes only MasterCard or cash. The food was good.
