Leméac Bistro -- yummy!

Fritzy | Oct 27, 2005 04:16 PM

Because of very busy morning and a need to head to the airport around 6:30 pm, I was looking for a place to eat a fine Sunday dinner around 4 pm – hardly an ideal time to be looking for fine cuisine in Montréal. I had long been considering giving Leméac Bistro a try and this seemed the ideal time to do it. I only regret I put off my visit for so long. The main course of grilled veal chop in morel sauce was a total delight. The veal was tender and moist and the sauce outstanding. To make it a truly memorable meal, I ordered a nice Sonoma pinot noir, La Crema, made all the more palatable by not breaking the bank at the same time. The wine list appeared to be rather extensive.

Although the severs were very informally attired, the service was helpful, fast and friendly – just the way I like it (helpful but not pushy). At that odd hour (after Sunday brunch and before the conventional dinner hour) I think there were only three tables going. I don’t know what service is like when it is busy. I have read the place can get rather noisy when it is full. But my date and I had a nice restful dinner by the window looking out on rue Laurier. I can’t wait to go back.
