French Bistro Montreal ....

TguyMTL Aug 30, 2011 01:30 AM

I am looking for suggestions for a great French restaurant in Montreal. But here is the thing.... We are entertaining friends from Australia and and from my experience traditional French fare may not quite be their thing - I know your asking, than why take them to a French restaurant? Because they asked... forgetting that last time they refused to eat the following: fois gras, organ meats of any sort, wild hen, boar, horse - we went to the Petite Conti.

I really thought Chez L'epicier would be nice but last time we went it was PACKED with tourists and the service was not so great. Open to your suggestions.

      Sounds like your friends don't like French bistro. Maybe French fine dining would be more appropriate. L'Épicier, for example, is fine-dining and not bistro.

      I think Club Casse & Pêche, La Porte or even more bistronomique places like Au 5e Péché or Cocagne should be on your list.
