  1. Don't think so, but in very close by Brooklyn there is Mile End for smoked meat, poutine and Montreal Bagels. http://www.mileendbrooklyn.com/

      There is also Le Pescadeux, which describes itself as a French-Canadian maritime restaurant. Have not been there yet, but am eager to try it.

      Le Pescadeux
      90 Thompson Street, New York, NY 10012

    2. This is authentic Montreal food--smoked meats, poutine, PEI Mussels etc. They specialize in fish duets--you choose two fish with amazing preparations on one plate.
      It is reasonably priced and open for lunch and brunch.
      C'est magnifique!:).....

        Try M Wells, two stops into Queens on the 7 in Long Island City.

        1. re: ChiefHDB

          Yep, M Wells - opened by an Au Pied du Cochon alumnus.

          1. re: ChiefHDB

            what do they serve is it a montreal restauraunt?

          2. re: BROOKLYNDINER

            Which are you talking about, bklyn, Mile End or Pescadeux?

            1. re: BROOKLYNDINER

              What is Pei Mussels?

              1. re: habsfan110

                Mussels from Prince Edward Island

              2. re: BROOKLYNDINER

                Whats the restaurant called?

              3. m. wells and now fedora both have ex APC alums but fedora's food was pretty mediocre when i was there last week. nothing on the menu reminded me of joe beef or garde manger whatsoever.

                m. wells is a bit more creative but the lack of dinner service is getting a bit tired lately. i don't really feel like eating bone marrow and general tso's sweetbreads at 11am on a tuesday.

                    there's actually more to montreal cuisine than french fries and gravy.

                    1. re: sam1

                      agreed

                    2. re: asiansupper

                      I tried the classic there. I liked it.

                      1. re: asiansupper

                        Is corner burger from montreal? what else do they serve there?

                      2. Your best bet is definitely M Wells in LIC. The food is superior to Mile End and Fedora. The chef is not merely an alumnus of Au Pied du Cochin. It is Hugue Dufour himself.

                        Dinner service is available Tuesday thru Thursday. I think it's the only time they take reservations. They now have a liquor licence and are serving beer and wine. Cocktails designed for the food will be added in the next few weeks. Weekend service will take a few months.

                        The prep space is tiny so they have to figure out how to accommodate 3 meals (2 completely different menus) 6 days a week in a tiny diner kitchen. That's why they've been expanding slowly, "tired" comments to the contrary.

                        It's a supremely inventive restaurant with riffs on both diner staples an classic Quebecois food..

                        Plus it's a short commute on the 7 from midtown _

                            Long Island City. Look for details on the Outer Boroughs board ... http://www.chow.com/restaurants/91712...
