Seeking very fine lunch, not brunch, on a Saturday
I've noticed that many very fine restaurants in Montreal are open only in the evening (Bronte comes to mind), but I would like to have an excellent meal at lunchtime on a Saturday. What I do not want, however, is brunch (eggs, brioche and so on). Any suggestions?
I'd say Le Petit Alep. The decor leans more towards to the casual bistro side, but the food is of the highest quality. Dishes for the most part come with a small accompaniment of fries and fattouche, but you'd be well served to order a variety of their mezzes and salads, and pig out.
re; this wasn't meant to be response to the L'Express suggestion (another great option). Sorry!
