    no i did not see it. is this the wine series with superstars with Club Chasse? Who is coming next please share the link good luck with bernardin; i did not eat there in some time but when i worked in nyc this was the place for special occasions. i feel lucky to have attended a montrachet tasting in the salon upstairs with a special menu of very simple dishes prepared by eric with all these good things about la chronique and with the warm weather now i will book a lunch soon and try the fish tasting

    LC - maybe she had the same impression as me whats the big deal?! we have to be a bit more careful with the phrase 'great restaurant' certainly it do not have the consistentcy of LE BERNARDIN and for sure there is not the same genius at work to make a fish tasting menu is to be able to make a perfect fish each time which is very hard even for the michelin stars in france i will say that i had some of the best dessert in montreal there and also a good wine list and the room itself is special and intimate and basic strait forward - very montreal i do not remember the tasting menu of $195, but if they pour GREAT wines then maybe this is ok

    LC review in gazette today 2.5 stars Quote: "we need chefs like Taro's who can take suhi from ordinary to extraordinary"
  5. Beef Tartare? Best fries?

    Forgot to say - me too I like tartare with white wine... especially white bordaux or even champagne cuts the richness and let you eat the whole plate good with the garlic as well
  6. Your favourite terrasse

    Why don't you open one yourself, and see how lucrative it can be. ← for what? i am not a resto entrepreneur the opposite, i am a good resto COSTUMER why would you say such a thing?

    careful selection of seasonal fresh fish is very important i agree small selection - i have no problem as long as it is fresh and tasty

    no man or resto is an island i doubt that you do not compare one duck confit of one resto to another in your profession or one frite to another or one chef to another or one resto to another with your rating system like that, i compare one sushi to another anyway, i will check out Taro. Even if the food does not make me think again about montreal poor sushi quality at least the girls will distract me!
