Lonely Planet review

One of Montréal’s most respected restaurants (it’s so well known that there’s no sign) features extravagant pork, duck and steak dishes, along with its signature foie gras plates. Irreverent, award-winning chef Martin Picard takes simple ingredients and transforms them into works of art. The famous and surprisingly magnificent canard en conserve (‘duck in a can’), for instance, is half a roasted duck magret served with foie gras, cabbage, bacon, venison and spices, sealed and cooked in a can – then opened tableside and dumped over celery root puree on toast. Dishes are rich and portions are large, so bring an appetite. Reservations essential.
