Québec City week-end report.

Maximilien | Sep 30, 2013 09:53 AM

Last minute decision to spend the week-end in QC.

Excellent weather; ok food.

We arrived late on friday and staying at the ALT hotel in Ste-Foy, we decided to eat at the Bistango restaurant.

Nice "hotel" restaurant with solid "bistro" type menu; got the day's special of the "morue charbonnière" which was well cooked; GF ordered the classic salmon tartare.
No dessert
With that, we had a nice bottle of "Clos Mont-Blanc" pinot noir from Spain.
A tad expensive and not a destination restaurant; go if you are in the area.

Saturday morning, we brunched at Krieghof (ave. Cartier) for classic and standard brunch fare.

McDo and a belgium beer (at Pub St-Alexandre) during the day.

Saturday evening, GF wanted steak and we went to Charbon Steakhouse (gare Du Palais).

I'm not a steakhouse "guy" in general, but we had a good evening there. (don't know how it stacks up to MTL steakhouse, anyone?).

GF had the filet mignon, and I ordered the simple dry aged "Steak de Cote" With that, we ordered a very nice bottle of "Hess Allomi Cabernet Sauvignon".

They have a nice selection of American wines.

Good and expensive.

That's is ...

Will probably go back and plan ahead to do the "better" restaurants.

Max.
