Montreal Report: August 24-27, 2013

First off, I love Montreal and already miss it terribly...

My husband and I spent 4 great days recently and here's what we ate:

Patati Patata- solid poutine. Great IPA on tap. Good cheeseburger slider. We were surprised at how great the fish burger was! We will be back, loved the atmosphere and staff.

Bottega Pizzaria- we did not have the pizza, although it looked great. We tried a bunch of small plates- salumi, caprese, eggplant involtini... Food was good, our server was fantastic.

Au Pied de Cochon- did not have a reservation, so we thought we would try to get in on a Sunday as soon as they opened. We got lucky, after patiently waiting for a bit at the not-so-pleased hostess stand. Got seated at the food bar- love it. Stuffed ourselves- pied de cochon was a standout. Great server!

Mamie Clafoutis- I will dream of that chorizo ficelle, husband loved his chocolate croissant.

William J. Walter at Jean Talon Marche- We always stop in for a sausage with saurkraut, dijon and hot peppers- amazing.

Hambar- best charcuterie plate. Packed with housemade chix liver mousse, pickled vegetables, cured salamis and imported Serrano and Prosciutto. Cheese plate was perfect- featuring fromage quebecois.

Beauty's- had to get a Beauty's special before leaving.

Montreal has the BEST bagels (be quiet, NYC).

    lol we know, NY's are good if you like white bread.

    St Viateur or Fairmount? I'm all about St V.

    Thanks for the report, glad you enjoyed your stay.
