ontreal’s “minuscule restaurants, chef-run sandwich spots,” and reasonably priced wine bars are three good reasons why the city is “an exciting place to eat,” said A.J. Kinik in Food & Wine. Here are four eating and drinking spots not to be missed.
Au Pied de Cochon Chef Martin Picard’s “instant classics” include pied de cochon (pig’s foot), duck poached in a can, and foie gras–topped poutine—the “signature Quebecois dish of French fries and cheese curds smothered in gravy.” 536 Duluth E., (514) 281-1114
McKiernan This luncheonette-by-day turns into a cozy wine bar at night. The menu features house-made charcuterie, chicken tikka with two chutneys, and a Saturdays-only sautéed shrimp with biscuit, poached eggs, and bacon-speckled gravy. 2485 Notre Dame W., (514) 759-6677
Buvette Chez Simone This wine bar in the Mile End neighborhood is “the city’s newest oenophile hangout.” The reasonably priced wine is paired with small plates meant for sharing, such as “superb spicy cod fritters.” 4869 Parc Ave., (514) 750-6577
Provisions Specialties at this fancy sandwich shop include a lamb sausage wrap with eggplant spread and a chicken confit on focaccia with oven-dried tomatoes. 1595 Boulevard St.-Laurent, (514) 844-9656
