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.

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...
They are mostly good.
I'd try :
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.
