The best of the best.....
Spending a weekend in MTL soon.
Definitely on our list is a dinner at LeFilet. We loved it last year and can't wait to return.
I'm looking for suggestions for the 2nd night which will be a Sunday. Price is not an issue and although we're staying in Old Montreal, we're willing to travel for a good meal.
We've done Joe Beef, Europa, Toque and Au pied doesn't really interest me.
What's hot right now and not to be missed?
Unfortunately some of the best are closed on sunday. But here are some that are not:
- Le Comptoir
- La salle à manger
- Hôtel Herman
None of these suggestions are hot right now, but I thought I'd include them, since I've been to Milos, Ferreira Cafe and Lemeac several times, and I have been wanting to try La Chronique for a while.
I've enjoyed Milos and Ferreira Cafe on Sunday nights. I especially like the grilled octopus and fried zucchini and eggplant at Milos. I prefer the grilled fin fish at Ferreira to the grilled fin fish at Milos. Ferreira also serves the best custard tarts I've found outside of Portugal, served warm.
Not sure if they are open Sundays, but I've enjoyed very good Italian at Hostaria, which is realtively new.
Club Chasse & Pêche belongs with Joe Beef, Europa and Toque up there somewhere in the stratosphere.
Da Emma and Osteria Venti seem to have the favor of the rustic italian enthousiasts. Loved Venti myself.
If you are looking for something special maybe you can try a member of the Montreal french old guard? Le Mas des Oliviers, L'express and La Mère Michel are still solid choices that carry of lot of historical vibe.
