Le Latini or Toque?

I am taking clients out for dinner in Montreal mid-October (6 people).

Torn between LeLatini and Toque! but I haven't been to either in a while.

Any thoughts?

LeLatini has my sentimental vote as the first place I ever had Puttenesca sauce (which turned into a love affair). And Toque!, well it's been flawless every time I've ever been.

The ziplock bag is for the Schwartz's I'll be hauling home

I think the Latini is an excellent restaurant -- IF you're a regular customer with cash to burn. The owner, Moreno di Marchi, is someone who is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about Italian food. BUT unless you're a friend of the house, you might end up with indifferent service. Happened to me more than once and it just ruined everything.

Toqué! is a great restaurant, arguably the best in the city. A little cold, yes, but they have settled into their new space now. This time of year, I think the food is unbeatable. There are 18 chefs in the kitchen. When dinner is "on" at Toqué! it can be mind-blowingly special.

My vote: Toqué!
