M sur Masson
Serious foodies keep Laloux on their must-eat list, and it's not hard to see why: the prices are good and the food is refined in an elegant decor reminiscent of a high-end French restaurant. The cuisine is fresh and based on very local ingredients like immature juniper berries, sea buckthorn, and local honeycomb. The restaurant takes pride in its exemplary environmental approach like an Ocean Wise certification, a composting program, and organic or sustainably-produced ingredients. The seasonal menu changes often but the duck magret or seared scallops are always a good bet. For a more casual atmosphere, head over to Bar Laloux next door for a great three-choice, C$20 table d'hôte in a mid-century Scandinavian decor.
Dinette Triple Crown
Chef and Kentucky native Colin Perry has brought Southern cuisine to Montréal and it's a hit. He and his girlfriend and co-owner, Nicole Turcotte, a native Montrealer, have built a huge following with their tiny restaurant (a counter with eight stools). Fried chicken with fluffy mashed potatoes and gravy, braised greens, hush puppies, and biscuits, along with pulled pork sandwiches and brisket, will have you speaking with a southern drawl in no time. There are also daily specials and desserts. If the weather's nice, tell the hipsters behind the counter that you'd like to have your meal in Little Italy Park across the street and they'll provide the picnic basket, cutlery, dishes, and a tablecloth—just don't forget to return the basket.
M sur Masson
The menu at M sur Masson is filled with dishes that are satisfyingly traditional but with enough creative twists to keep food lovers interested. The French onion soup is one of the best around, making use of a deep-flavored Swiss Gruyère des Grottes, and if veal liver is your thing, this is the place to order it. The old cheddar poutine is the house specialty and makes a definitely satisfying lunch. The dining room, lined with wooden benches and globe-shaped light fixtures, is appropriately bistro-esque. If you're coming for Sunday brunch, be sure to reserve a table.
