Montreal’s Restaurants – Expensive 2

Now to Les Trois Petits Bouchons (Three Little Morsels / Tastes) – one of Montreal’s Best Restaurants

Located in a brick-walled cellar, sit at one of the blond wood tables and enjoy an amazing experience. Known for its homemade charcuteries (deli dishes), classic duck confits, seasonal menu from local organic ingredients, fantastic wine list of about 150 types and all made especially for the restaurant without added sulfites! This is rustic French cuisine on a stylish French promenade — casual elegance.

There’s something for everyone here. The day’s offerings are handwritten in French on a blackboard (‘sur le tableau noir’). The waiters will translate.

Some favorites you might find:

___ Pieuvre grillée: the smokey soft grilled octopus is the signature starter, served with BBQ sauce and crême fraiche.

___ Petoncles Princesse. It is as good as anything one might find in a restaurant — a small, raw, impressively fresh scallop, served in its shell with diced cucumber, a dash of wasabi oil, and a spoonful of strawberry puree.

___ Unusual, tasty versions of Surf ‘n’ Turf.

The wine list at LTPB is heavier on reds that whites and it is predominantly French, from the Languedoc-Roussillon and other lesser-known regions; they are chemical-free.

Be aware, that for a special meal for 2, you could spend $200. But, you can enjoy the ambiance and culinary delight for much less, too. Prices: $10 and $15 for appetizers and $18- $35 for entrees; the wines by the glass are between $8- $12 but there are no bottles under $40.

Attentive, not over-bearing service and understanding childrens’ needs, too.

Casual attire, expensive, takes credit cards, good for kids, takes reservations, not wheelchair accessible.
