This glittering Plateau icon is like a piece of Paris
relocated to Montreal
, complete with accents. Typical French appetizers like Du Puy lentil and squid salad or marrowbones served with crispy toasts and sea salt precede a set menu including steak frites, veal sweetbreads and poached salmon with salad. Though there are often seasonal specials, it’s a wonderful thing to be able to count on the same items being on the menu every time you go. The atmosphere is glamorous with the black-and-white tiled floor and vast mirrors, and the high ceilings help the happy chatter and clinking china fill the space with joy.
