Great Italian Dinner

illusion | Nov 24, 2008 04:48 PM

Well, here is my challengethat i have not been able to replicate,

a few years ago, ive tried out a restaurant called "la botte" down in santa monica , california, it has been basicaly my best meal ever, great contemporary italian food. for example:

Gorgonzolla stuffed artichoke,
4 cheese ravioli, (with shaved black truffle)
a ricotta cheese cake to die for, (basicaly like eating a cloud from heaven)...

... Well, since then ive been trying to replicate the experience in montreal, While i have to admit ive did not try every single italian restaurant available, ive tried a few of the culprit one without much luck:

Buenna notte, Stromboli, Tenuta, otto, primavera, Grazziella, ill martini, la diva, novelo ect ect...

ive read other things about many of the other known restaurant in town : Da emma, Bice, Bis, le lattini, il mulino, but in all honesty none have really inspired me..

well, in my last hope, i am here to ask for your help for suggestion for the dinner of a life time, be it in a trendy or classic atmosphere, the only thing that really do matter to me is a divine sofisticated meal i can remember for years to come.

thanks for your help
