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?

    Les 400 Coups has gotten a lot of positive attention lately!

      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.

          Not sure if they are open Sundays, but I've enjoyed very good Italian at Hostaria, which is realtively new.

            Not necessarily "hot", but new and recommended, is Maison Boulud.

              Thank you. I will do some research on these and make my decision.

              La Chronique

              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.
