    Look at places like :

    La Chronique, Lemeac and L'Express for foie gras terrine.

    A quick googling of my fav. places show that most places will have (cold) terrine as an appetizer and nothing really as a main course.

      I believe Kitchen Galerie Poisson, the old Montreal version which is open for lunch, has the Kitchen Galerie emblematic Foie Gras appetizers, from the more basic cold foie gras parfait to their seared or hot foie gras.

      If you're coming in June and looking more for foie gras as a main course, check out Club Chasse et Pêche for lunch, they usually have their rissoto with foie gras pieces available. Outdoor eating only, but that terrasse is amazing.

          Not too familiar with the place, as I've only been once to that location. Most of it's patrons are office workers, so I believe it is actually more crowded at lunchtime. If you can make reservations, it is always better, but you should be okay without, especially if it is just you. At worst, leave your name, and walk around old Montreal for 20-30 minutes, if it's a nice day, it's always pleasant.

          Just a note, be careful, I'm referring to Kitchen Galerie Poisson, that is on Notre Dame, near McGill street in old Montreal, NOT the original Kitchen Galerie location on Jean-Talon. The Jean-Talon one is not opened for lunch.

            I think foodiegal was referring to Kitchen Galerie and not Kitchen Galerie Poisson. If so, reservations are an absolute must for Kitchen Galerie.

              Pintxo sounds great as well.....I couldnt see their lunch menu on their site, but if there are several foie gras dishes, that would fit the bill! thx :)

                They give you two appetizers (one is always foie gras), and you can choose any main from the menu and it costs 18$. (incredible value) The lunch menu is the last thing mentioned on the menu and isnt very clear...but it is the same menu at lunch as at dinner.
