Mid range French bistro cooking
Hi. The birthday celebrator wants to have the meal on a Sunday night at a French (ie France-influenced, like L'Express and Cafe Chenier) bistro in Montreal (the area of the city doesn't matter). Are there are any threads on this here? Or can someone provide me recommendations or a link to a good list they can choose from? Thanks.
Are you looking for French-inspired or traditional French? Because L'express and Café Cherrier are both pretty old-school French places. Whereas Eaterbob's list runs the gamut from Traditional to contemporary bistro.
For traditional I would go with Lemeac, and for contemporary, I would do Laloux. I'Ve never been disappointed by either.
You might also want to consider Le Margaux. I haven't been in quite a while, but if it's as good as it was before it went BYOW, it would a great option.
I started a post wondering about its new incarnation not long ago. I was interested in particular as a friend is visiting and he will be staying very close by (in the flat of a friend who is away) and we thought it might me nice to take him out there, as it is not much more than round the corner.
Since there is a SAQ Sélection round another corner, it would be handy - if it is good.
