Merry Christmas Chowhounds!
My husband and I are heading up to Montreal (this Sat/Sun) and then Quebec until New Year's Day for a week of 'mange, mange, mange'. Could anyone recommend phenomenal tasting menus that they've had at any of the Quebec or Montreal restaurants. This may be our last trip to Canada for some time. :-(
The most memorable tastings menus I've had thus far were Hiramatsu in Tokyo; Komi in Washington and Le Bernardin, in NYC. I highly recommend these three. I preferred the first two places over Le Bernardin just because they are small, intimate and personable. Le Bernardin is a very big place, relatively. I prefer one or two bites of something truly extraordinary as opposed to a bigger dish of above-mediocre quality.
Thanks for any suggestions or advice you can share.
