recently in montreal, which i loved, and one thing i was struck by was the number of food spaces i saw doing double duty -- restaurant and retail space in one, e.g., LE TARTARIN, which i know has been mentioned here before, but i couldn't find posts from people who'd eaten there -- anybody been? also, a place in Old Montreal that I think is called L'EPICERIE -- it looked beautiful, but i haven't been able to track it down on the web at all -- anyone been there? another place in Old Montreal, further west, i think on Rue St. Paul, on a corner, that was casual but packed. of course i didn't write the name down. ring any bells for anyone?
also, hugely interested in knowing of other such places in the montreal area -- any ideas?
