What's good Italian options? Anything on crescent or nearby?

If you want to eat at 7 o'clock, not possible at Impasto. But if you don't mind eating later, very doable.

And Gema doesn't take reservations.

Then finally, the only thing that could be vaguely considered good on Crescent street is that it isn't longer.

Best restaurant tartare

Angus Pride beef is "better-marbled beef" according to their website
http://www.anguspride.com/about/angus

The last thing you want in a tartare is fat and/or marbling. The beef used should be as lean as possible.

And at L'Express the tartare is hand-cut.

You win some, and you lose some. And I wouldn't be surprised if it was the same franchisee moving shop to a better location.

That's unfortunate on both counts.

Cabane a sucre Au Pied de Cochon saison des pommes 2015

Does anyone have a description of the menu? And/or pictures?

Alternative for Pintxo?

Taverne F does Portuguese petiscos
Mesón is the sister restaurant of Tapeo
Tapas 24 is owned by Carles Abellan
Le Filet does awesome small plate dishes with a emphasis on fish

But like chefjeannine, my first choice would be Tapeo

All should be more than fine with a 12 year-old.

And depending on when you're arriving Pinxto is in the process of renovating their new space and could be open by the time you arrive. Email or call them

Late Night Dinner Rec for 1 Tonight, Montreal? Plus if bar seating, great appetizer menu, or small plates

In priority order for tonight's dinner:
L'Express
Le Comptoir
APDC
Joe Beef

All offer "smaller servings or great appetizer choices."
All have "a bar to eat at" (and as an added bonus, at L'Express, you get served by M. Masson, hands down the best server in the city)
And all have "amazing food."
For the first two, 100% chance to eat immediately. For APDC and Joe Beef, I'd say better than a 50/50 chance you get seated immediately, and 100% chance if you don't mind waiting.

For the other diners, again, in priority order:
Bouillon Bilk
Club Chasse et Peche
400 coups
Le Filet
Le Comptoir
Pastaga

And whatever you do, have fun!

Mexican Spot in St. Henri

Canada’s Best New Restaurants 2015 - Home

Personally I would have chosen Cirkus, Ma'tine, Notkins, North End and Le Slang.

This is Montreal, which is in Quebec. I wouldn't be surprised if some palms weren't greased...

Canada’s Best New Restaurants 2015 - Home

Jatoba, La Table Des Gourmets, Lavanderia, Pizzeria Gema and Salmigondis make the long list.

Les Fillettes, Briz, Nolana, Wilfrid sur Laurier, Hà, Tejano, Tapas 24, Lauréa, Ma'tine, Notkin's Oyster Bar, Maison June Rose and MKT did not make the cut.

Quebec Trip (Montreal & Quebec City)

No need to change anything for Montreal. Make the reservations at Hotel Herman and Bouillon Bilk.

Where do get a plate of fresh pasta

Pasta a Go-Go.

Places in Montreal you WOULDN'T take your kid?

Instead of La Banquise, I'd suggest Chez Ma Tante, Paul Patates, or Pataterie Chez Philippe.

Instead of Beaver Hall, I'd suggest Commerce, or Albert.

Osteria Venti is closed. You might want to replace it with Impasto or Scarpetta.

Instead of L'Orignal (notice the lack of a second "i") I'd suggest Les 400 Coups, Cirkus, Comptoir vins et charcuteries or Manitoba.

Instead of Maestro SVP, I'd suggest Chez Delmo or Notkins Oyster Bar.

Most restaurants in Montreal these days will accommodate both vegetarians and carnivores. It's not a gimmick or something rare at all.

This Ice Cream Turns Into a Pile of Edible Silk

Is there anyplace in town that serves shaved snow cream?

Week of gluttony

Brasserie T! is not a destination restaurant. It is good, but not great. 400 Coups is much better, but Bouillon Bilk is the best of the three.

The Price of Beer

Swiping from here
http://www.reddit.com/r/montreal/comm...

On selected times/days of the week
Grumpy's has $4 pints
St. Elisabeth has $4 pints
And Mad Hatter serves 150ml glasses of beer for $1

Restaurant on Sunday? Montreal

Why would you ever think to doubt us? Glad you got a reservation.

Food Events 2015

I'm not so certain I would call it "good" but it does give one a sense of what the Marché des possibles is like. Now I know I don't have to go.

Thanks
