I am presently in Montreal for 5 weeks visiting from Arizona. I went into a great kitchen shoppe on Laurier and my wife and I met the owner Francois. He was a most welcoming and delightful gentlemen. He gave my wife and I about 6 restaurant suggestions, One of which was Tri Express. Last evening my wife and I walked a couple of miles and got to the restaurant at around 7:45 P.M. We were abruptly seated by a rather unfriendly individual and immediately told that the restaurant closed at 9:00 P.M . Additionally,we were told that " we would have to eat within 1 hour ". I have to think that it was the Owners night off. If not, it's too bad if he has that type of attitude. We promptly left the restaurant deeply disappointed, however had a wonderful at Truffert Bistro locared at 1481 Lauier. The beet appetizer was one of the best i've ever had and the salmon was outstanding. Above all, the owner Christophe takes great interest in his customers satisfaction.Boo Tri Express and Kudo's to Truffert Bistro.
