  1. I finally took it upon myself to go there for diner on Friday.. and I was very pleased with the experience..

    we had 4 tatsy rasphberry point oysters, the potato veloute w/ ribs, and the beets & pralined bacon salad as appetizers.. and all 3 were terrific

    for entrees, we had the divine lobster spaghetti and the delicious pintade..

    we skipped dessert..

    all in all, a wonderful culinary exprience.. every thing was perfectly seasonned.. we found the prices to be high versus comparable priced, but more complex meals we had elseweher.. but it is definitly an address that we will go back to

  2. On Tastet's choices...

    O Chalet: I have been there twice and both experiences were terrible.. Food served at inappropriate temperatures, mix of tastes that just don't work together, inproperly cooked food (overcooked), etc. I do not recommend it and do not get what all the hype around this place is about.

    Jun i: Very good sushi/asian-inspired cuisine. Love it!

    Express: Is not what it used to be. The cooking has been lackluster as of late and declining in a major way. Don't understand how this resto still makes it in the top 12 list..

    Joe Beef: Havent been there yet, but heard many good things about it

    Bo: Havent been there either..

    Montee de lait: De food is delicious, especially for the price. My only problem with the place is the lackluster service when it gets busy. Last time I went there, we barely got any wine/food descriptions; the service was very slow; wines being served after a course was complete; etc.

    Chronique: a classic.. definitly, one of the top places in MTL

    CCP: well, everyone knows I am bullish on this.. well deserved

    Spaghettatta & Vasco De Gamma: They are ok restaurants, but no where close to all the others.. It definitly seems that Tastet is getting some cutbacks from these restos..

    XO: Haven't been; am going there on the 26th.. Can't wait to try..

    Raza: His description is spot on, but i find it difficult to see this becoming more than an occasional fling unless menu changes substantially...

    You got to wonder.. where are Chevres, Toque, Bronte, etc? Even places like Jolifou beat many of the restos above..

  4. it's funny to see how the restaurants on the main and the buena notte group restos are being compared to NYC's best spots...

    Montrealers don't even consider those as good culinary experiences, so they definitly can't compare to NYC.

    Regardless, I do believe that NYC still blows MTL out of the water, just due to the sheer size of the city.

    But, we do have some very good spots that are very often off the tourist paths: the Club Chasse et Peche, Juni, Raza, Version, Anise, Epicier, etc Now, we are talking...

  5. I have read a couple of reviews of this restaurant, but so far no one has mentioned that this is a boutique restaurant, that is, everything in the place is for sale. The salt shakers, the chairs, the cutlery...

    Did any of you pick up on that? Or am I dreaming?

    It is.. I bought some olive oil and some rectangular long plates..

  6. the wine list is okay-ish.. primarly focused on italian, portuguese and spanish wines.. there was 1 california wine, 3 french, 2 south american and the rest was iberican or italian..

    you will find something, but the selection could be better

    they also lack a decent sommelier
