During our 2016 Grand Tour, we visited our good friends the Greens in Montreal. One hot sunny day, Giulia took us on a tour of the best of Montreal’s markets including Jean-Talon in Little Italy and Atwater near the Lachine Canal where we bought the ingredients for a killer meal. Check out our review of all the markets we visited and see what we did with the wonderful ingredients.
With a few exceptions, Le Club Chasse et Peche served up good food, wine, and cheer. The highlights of our meal were the cornbread and a decadent lamb shoulder. The least memorable dish was the pan-fried halibut. We recommend going during the shoulder seasons when game (shot or farmed) and fish (ditto) are suited to the robust and rich preparations preferred at this Montreal institution.
I had high hopes for the Liverpool House restaurant in Montreal, but our visit certainly had its culinary ups and downs.
Located in the former headquarters of a Canadian textile magnate, the eponymous Hotel Gault is an oasis of design and hospitality tucked away on a quiet street in the middle of Montreal’s otherwise thronged and noisy Vieux Montreal district.
