Finally made it to L'Inconnu, after reading a few raves here. Had the Tarte de tomates appetizers, which was very good, served with a side of delicious 'micro-pousses' of lettuce and herbs. The main was much less inspiring: rabbit served 3 different ways: a rable stuffed with mushrooms which was insipid and dry, a small square of fried rillettes, which seemed like a good idea on paper but was also tasteless, and a tiny pot pie which had a delicious crust but forgettable insides. My dinner mate had the gnocci appetizer which was much liked, and the veal liver and tongue which was also good, but served with the same sauce as the appetizer. Dessert of chocolate truffle cake was nice and chocolatey, but nothing to rave about. Service was nice, decor pretty drab. Frankly, with the number of french restaurants in Montreal offering the same type of fare but much better done, I see no reason for going back.
