Two dinners in Montreal
Just had two good meals in Montreal with 3 dining companions.
An excellent meal. We shared two appetizers: Mediterranean fish soup and House made rillettes, and there might have been a salad too. The fish soup was particularly good, rich, creamy, & very flavorful. For the main dish I had Mussles and Fries. The mussel sauce was subtle but quite nice, and fries were very good. DCs had the Braised beef short rib, the Roasted duck breast, and Toulouse sausages. All were good, although the sausages were a bit much - would have been better as a shared appetizer.
Le Comptoir Charcuteries et Vins
Noisy & small, but a fun place to go to get the flavor of Montreal. The online menu is just in French, but they had English menus for us when we were seated. The charcuterie plate was excellent, as expected. We shared four additional 'small plates'. The best was a pressed pulled pork BBQ sandwich. The beet salad with gat cheese was also excellent. The other two (lobster salad, shrimp salad) were OK but nothing special.
