Will I like french?

Ghostquatre | Aug 9, 2008 11:38 AM


I'm 20-24 years old, I've been living in Montreal for 17-21 years and I have to confess: I have never set foot in a french restaurant.

I was wondering if it would be something that I would like. Considering the high prices and the fact that I have no idea how to drink/taste wine, is it going to be worth my money? If I can't understand how complex wine tasting is, will I be able to grasp the supposedly super refined cuisine? Hell, I'm not even sure what exactly is french cuisine aside from the fact that most people consider it haute cuisine.

Could someone recommend me a good french restaurant for a french newbie? I wouldn't want something like a chain restaurant and also preferably a place where the waiters won't go rude if I don't order wine. I could make up excuses, but I would rather feel comfortable where I pay for a service.
