Hello hounds: My wife and I will be visiting Montreal next month. The food choices are many and our nights are few so we'd like some advice. We plan on trying Au Pied de Cochon. It's stuff we cannot get in CA and we've heard raves. Is the hype justified?
We'd like a different kind of experience on another night. Grain de Sel looks interesting -- their menu looks innovative. We got a rec for L'Express which looks more classic. Any opinions to offer on these two? Or any additional recs for Quebec-style, local-driven choices where we won't find too many tourists?
Looking forward to your suggestions.
