NYers at the end of a five-day trip to Montreal... I concede the gold ring to you. We didn't have a single disappointing meal here, and most were superlative, including:
Dim sum at Ming Do
Bombay Mahal
Rotisserie Romados
Crepes at Lulu B.
Burgers/vegiburgers at La Paryse
Les Delice de L'Ile de Maurice--first time trying food from Mauritius
Dark chocolate fondue at Juliette et Chocolat
Decent Vietnamese sandwiches, when our destination Lao-Thai restaurant was closed
Breakfast at a lovely diner on Rue Rachel--can't remember the name
Fairmount Bagels--loved the texture, but too sweet for my NY bagel palette
Coffee, hot chocolate, par tout

And may I recommend Cuban music night at Diese Onze?

Thank you for great eating, and a lovely city!

      What was the Mauritius place like?

        I'm curious as well, as Sylvester apparently left. The man was 75% the reason we'd go there.

          So true... I haven't been back since, and have quite a few disappointed friends who wanted to try it out.

            I don't know if the guy running the restaurant was Sylvester... but he certainly didn't seem like a newbie. He hosted, cooked, served, and answered questions about Mauritius with an easy, open manner. The food was excellent (and inexpensive to boot); we had an excellent evening there.

              The gentleman who currently runs Aux Délices de l'Ile Maurice mentioned to me (I asked) that he's a friend of the esteemed Sylvester's who took over after Sylvester's well-deserved retirement. He's no stranger to the restaurant and appears to take his responsibility to Montreal diners seriously. I went in November and it was just as good as I remembered it being before the handover.
