Well I just spent the weekend in Montreal -- what a
great city for eating! We had:
Friday Lunch: a newly opened bistro in Vieux Montreal.
Price Fixe lunch was $10.50 for appetizer, main course
and dessert. We both had salad for appetizer; I had
Moules Mariniere and Ellen had Cassoulet au Canard.
Everything was excellent, though I could have skipped
the dessert just as well.
Friday Supper: fresh strawberries,
mascarpone/gorgonzola torte, and honey; all purchased
at the Atwater Market, a beautiful location for buying
produce, cheeses, meats, bread, flowers.
Saturday Lunch: Smoked Meat (Canadian Pastrami)
sandwiches at Schwartz's, which my friend Maurice
described as the Canadian Katz's -- well, I wouldn't go
that far as I found the meat a touch too dry and tough;
but it is a very respectable deli, at least as good as
the Pastrami King in Forest Hills.
Saturday Supper: The only miss of the trip. We went to
a jazz club called Biddley's and ate their barbecued
ribs and chicken wings. I wouldn't recommend the food
or the music particularly.
Sunday Lunch: The cafe at Musee des Beaux-Arts de
Montreal. Excellent soup, fair sandwiches -- certainly
better than any other museum cafe I've ever eaten at.
