Quebec Trip (Montreal & Quebec City)

Hey all,

I am heading up to Quebec in a few weeks from NYC - first time. I have Joe Beef and Au Pied De Cochon booked for Montreal.. Looking for two more dinner suggestions - Hotel Herman and Bouillon Bilk on the short list. Also, need some reccomendations for Quebec City: 2 lunches and 2 dinners. Any helpers?

Thank you!

Madrid Dinner Questions

Hey -

I will be in Madrid for 3 nights and am looking for some suggestsions for dinner.

I have one night booked at Meson Txistu and one lunch at Jose Maria in Segovia. So I am looking for a few suggestions that are not meat heavy... Ribeira do Mino, Los Galayos, El Barril de Las Letras, Sanxenxo, La Trainera, and La Paella de la Reina have been suggested and I am leaning for the first place. Thoughts or suggestions?

I am looking for a spot where locals go to eat, doesnt have to be fancy, just good food.

Also, any suggetsions on tapas bars or places to eat the best jamon?

Thanks in advanced all.

With the long time chef of Clancy's leaving to open Annunciation, is Clancy's still as good as it used to be?

Patois is great. It has a quiet little neighborhood feel. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu, it is one of my favorites uptown.
