Another birthday dinner at Queue de Cheval

The two things I miss most about Montreal are the good food...and the beautiful women ;)

By coincidence, for the second year in a row I was back in my hometown for my birthday, which meant another dinner at one of my favourite hometown restos, Queue de Cheval.

The meal was incredible...

my appetizer...steak cut tomatoes with blue cheese...fortunately with a huge amount of blue cheese...unfortunately with a huge mound of onions (which i did not eat).

next course, bone-in filet mignon! although this (18 oz.) cut of meat is on their menu, it is not always available...lucky me! This time I decided to try it with their gorgonzola butter and I was not disappointed! Nice touch to include a clove of garlic. As usual, I ordered the (incredible) creamed spinach and a baked potato (I must add that my friend's garlic mashed potatoes were awesome..something to keep in mind for future visits)

Next the waitors SCREAMED a happy birthday song for me...presentation of the birthday "cake" was great but it was a bit too rich for me...

I finished it off with strawberries marinated in balsamic and covered in mascarpone cheese

as always, service was incredible...i like the usual formula of showing samples of the food with explanations and then showing your specific general, I really like the vibe (not pretentious at fact they like to joke around)...and the atmosphere was just as beautiful as ever (and that includes the five girls up-front ;) )

oh, and some additional pics...

2 pound Jamaican lobster tail anyone?

not enough? how about a 10 pound lobster then?
