tasting dinner with wine for one
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.
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!
