My wife and I moved to Montreal a few months back, we're both incurable foodies (she is mostly veg with the occasional bit of fish, myself I'll eat anything that's not obviously a freshly roasted insect). I was hoping for some recommendations for somewhere wonderful to head out of town for an anniversary dinner (don't mind going as far as upstate VT, NH or NY or over to Ontario for something truly worth it - these new ice tires need a workout anyway). Ideally a sustainable/farm to table sort of deal.
We were thinking of driving down to Michaels on the Hill in VT, that sort of menu is kind of what we're after, but it's not open on a Tuesday, which is the day in question. And I figure, there must be something truly special out there in Quebec that I just haven't found yet? Not snooty posh or old-school fancy, just honest and good. It can be in Montreal as well, just, y'know, a bit further than the Plateau, where we've eaten almost everything in sight.
