Hi AntiHero, glad you found redemption within Montreal's finest food spots.
Au Pied du Cochon is one of my favourite restos in town. Mmm, love them Cromequis!
Montreal is a well cultured foodie city. Among the best out of the great cities around the globe IMO.
Its good you got a taste of some of the finer joints.
There are many more to discover, so its more reason to return next summer I suppose.
I love reading your RR and the deep essays that seem to flow with ease. Great writing amigo.
