New Year's eve at Les Infideles

b grubbs | Dec 5, 2004 08:46 PM

We have a crew of about 12 and a plan to head up from NH/VT to Montreal for the changing of the year.

A friend of another of the group has us set with at least preliminary reservations at Les Infideles (6 courses/$115 Canadian, I hope), both for quality and the BYO wine bit, on Dec. 31.

Here's the question: At least four members of our group have dietary restrictions (2 vegan, 2 vegetarian+seafood diets) that, with the standard 6 course menu, would probably lead to more than a few untouched plates. Can anyone here offer any insight into this specific kitchen's openness to requests for substitutions?

I realize that New Year's Eve is likely to be busy enough that this could be a serious imposition (and I also realize that trying to induce a French bistro to put up a vegan spread is as crazy as trying to get a vegan to eat at a French bistro), but we are trying to accommodate a varied group of friends for a nice dinner and figure that it is at least worth asking about the possibilities.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated -- and more general comments on eating with a varied group in Montreal would also probably be useful (though it looks like there are already a number of threads on non-meat dining in Montreal). Even outright mockery relating to the futility of our quest might also be amusing.

Thanks,
Barney
