Taste MTL, suggestions?

I've recently moved back to Montreal from about a year in the USA and I'm looking at taste mtlmas a good way to get back into the city's restaurant scene.

Was hoping the hounds could make some suggestions on which rests are worth checking out. So far my only reservation is at Baxo.

    1. I've booked at Brasserie T for sunday. I wanted 400 coup but that was already full by the time i learned about the event!

      Baxo menu looks awesome!

        I went to Brasserie T! last night, and we absolutely loved the menu offered! Was fantastic, would recommend this resto for sure.

        Next Thursday we're going to 400 Coups, so looking forward to that one.

          I went on Sunday and honestly, we were all underwhelmed. The portions were small and the sides weren't great on some of the plates (Two people ordered bavette and it just came with fries, one person ordered ribs i think and it came with a coleslaw). It was good food but for the price we paid and the reputation of the chef, i guess we expected more.

            Well this is Brasserie T!. Simple brasserie food but well done. First time I went I was disappointed like you, found it way too simple and was expecting more because of Toqué's reputation, but I enjoyed it a lot more the second time when I knew what to expect. Portions may have been smaller for the event though...

      2. They are mostly good.

        I'd try :

        La Chronique.
        5eme péché.

        1. the menus are up. most of the 19,29 dollar ones are very disappointing

            Ferreira had a nice 10pm $19 menu, but somehow, I guess they changed their mind because it's not posted anymore...

          2. Bocata has a $29 menu. The food was very good but the portions were itty bitty. If I had paid the regular price and walked out still hungry, as I did last night, I would not have been happy. The drinks are overpriced.

              went to Decca77 last night, wasnt impressed. Food was decent but for some reason service was terrible. Waiter was nice but took 1 hr from the time we sat until we got our soups. Wouldnt recommend for taste montreal, thought its normally better.

              Going to carte blanche tomorrow, la chronique on tuesday and laloux on thursday. Can report back after.
