I've been on the West Coast for the past year (I've relocated to San Francisco) and I won't lie -- I don't really miss the food scene back home too much! ;)
But I am excited to be coming back into the city for a couple of weeks next month with my wife, to visit family and friends, and I'm wondering if there are any new restaurants on the scene that are worth checking out?
I'm also looking forward to eating some good simple french food and regional terroir again (we've actually got way better down here but it's a completely different experience at an entirely different price point!) and I'm wondering if the same few bistros are just as consistent and great... Les 3PB, Chez l'Épicier, A5P, Laloux, etc? Any new names in similar style?
What about Greek food? I've been going to Vegera ever since Orexi closed it's doors. Is there anything better for the typical Mtl family style Greek stuff?
Any new bakeries or patisseries worth trying?
I feel kind of spoiled after moving to SF and there's certain things I once held sacred that I don't even think I'd enjoy anymore (most ethnic-asian foods, seafood, ice cream, etc.) but the beauty of returning home for short visits is that I can focus on what really counts and what Quebec does right, so please update me on what's been happening food-wise in La Belle Province since I've been absent!
Merci amis!! :)
