tasting dinner with wine for one

TeeZee Oct 11, 2013 09:45 AM

will be in MTL on a Friday, staying over from a business trip to see the Habs play on a Saturday night. Looking for a place where I can enjoy a leisurely tasting menu, preferably with wine pairings. Don't want to be pushed off to a crummy table in the back because I am on my own. This will be my night's entertainment after a long day of meetings. Prefer French or French-inspired. On previous visits, have enjoyed Toque (old location), Nuances, Chez la Mere Michel, Bonaparte, Caprices des Nicolas (since closed). Willing to try anywhere. Any reccos? Can push the boat out as it's an expense account.

    I would recommend Les 400 Coups, La Chronique, or maybe Europea

      All perfect recommendations from Maximilien (as usual). My top choice would be Les 400 Coups

        These places do tasting menus for one? What's the tasting menu like at 400 Coups?

            They should and usually do.

            what they want os the whole table doing the tasting menu.

          Sometimes they don't have a tasting menu on their regular menu but will make one up for you. Le Filet did this for us. We asked to be surprised and they took care of everything else, it was the best meal I have ever had in Montreal. I could also see doing this at les 3 Petits Bouchons. The Bremner did it for us as well except that the meal was a total bomb!

              Did Le Filet prepare you a bespoke tasting menu or did the waiter or kitchen just pick dishes from the regular menu?

                The waiter chose the menu for us and it was spectacular and all for 100$. I went with a friend who knows the manager so I think we got a special price. I am scared to go back in fear that it will never live up to expectations.
