There's a wonderful casual restaurant called "Le Navigator", near Notre Dame.
Totally French, not a word of English spoken, but no matter, the food is authentic, delicious and reasonably priced.
We had Lyon Sausages with potatoes, Pate, Salmon in a light butter sauce, a lamb dish and "Ile Flotante" that was as light as air.
"(humbly, in regards to John and Souphie)"
Gosh, I'm humbled, but so long as you're willing to eat at new places, especially at lunch, you have no problem.
Regalade St-H, best prix-qualite of the spring
Concert de Cuisine not French but hey
Bouchons & Assiette
Les Petits Plats
in that order.
Call when you hit the ground.
Older places if these don't work out:
Hi Maximilien! It's so hard to compare, because restaurants here are so varied, plentiful, and $$$! But I am generally in LOVE with Liverpool House, l'Orignal, Westmount Taverne, le Chien Fumant, Pullman, Les Enfants Terribles, etc. Would have totally quoted Joe Beef, Au Pied de Cochon, XO, and DNA if they were more within my budget. Sigh. A millionaire's tastebuds on a writer's budget :(
