Montreal Mission 2009
Going to Montreal in a few weeks.
After a little research and reviews, here is the eating itinerary:
*Europea for lunch
and a few stop off's at Schwartz's and La Banquinesse (sp)?
Will send reviews when the digestion is complete
If anyone has any recommendations from the menu at any of these places, please feel free to suggest.
Leméac: panko crusted goat cheese appetizer with apple and walnut, pain doré dessert
Alep: get one of the predetermined menus - I forget what they're named but there are three and each of them include several courses
La Banquise: Poutine Classique or Poutine Chouxxx
have a dessert at Pop! I enjoyed the litchi granitas. A balanced and surprising end of meal. yum!
At pop! I like the arancini, the brussel sprout salad, and all the tartes that I have tried, along with the pot-de-crème au chocolat...You'll love the service there, they treat their customers so well.
Are you going to Alep or Petit Alep? I prefer the latter, personally, but both have their good points. Regardless, I love the filet mignion with spicy sauce (I can't remember what they call it on the menu) and also as an appetizer the Muhammara dip...amazing flavours.
