At #10 its La Salle à Manger




Can a bistro be a bistro and still feel exciting? At Montreal’s La Salle à manger, the answer is an emphatic yes. The maître d’ wears a beard and trucker hat, the floor is hexagonal tile and the wall behind the bar is pressed tin. The feel is young and fresh and casual without being pretentiously so; how totally Montreal. The star is chef Samuel Pinard’s superb market-driven cooking: expertly seasoned duck tartare or gorgeous seared gnocchi with pickled Jerusalem artichokes, tart green apple, whipped potatoes and heady Comté cheese. A buttery, nutty, crunchy and addictive farotto is served in a thick broth made with mimolette cheese and salty-crunchy sea asparagus – try finding that at your usual resto. They’ll also happily roast a suckling pig for 12 if the need arises. Whereupon they will parade it, Lord of the Flies-style, around the room.

I know the article from 2009. I do hope Enroute updates it soon.
