IT had been a few years since we dined at this Montreal landmark (founded over 40 years ago), and we were not disappointed by our most recent visit.
While the food at Restaurant Paris is very good, it is the atmosphere that I really enjoy. You do feel like you are sitting in a little bistro in Paris. The hostess is an extraordinarily gracious woman who adds an air of elegance and style to this Montreal landmark.
The starter was a house specialty-calamari pan fried in a sauce of ink and red wine. The main was a rack of lamb with 6 meaty portions-perfectly cooked. My wife enjoyed the toulousse saussages with a plate of succulent golden and crsipy frites.
This is not fancy St. Laurent St. cooking. This is simple Frebch bistro fare done extremely well. With an very nice Bordeaux, dinner was $145, all in.
I would reccommend the Paris to anyone who wants to experience good and simple French food, without the glitz and glamour of more "polished" Montreal eateries.
