i come to montreal nearly 2x a year lately from nyc. i was here just a month ago for a bachelor party and now i find myself in town again in montreal for 1 night with my girlfriend after a wedding in vermont.
we've been to joe beef, garde manger, apdc, chasse et peche, and l'express. i was actually looking forward to eating in joe beef's garden (and ordering properly) but alas, they arent open on sundays.
im caught between comptoir and les 3 petits bouchons. i love the montreal style of food but felt that apdc was a bit much and too heavy to enjoy.
can someone steer me to one over the over? what are must-have dishes at both?
