Les 400 Coups would have been terrific during the day, but this charming and refined restaurant in Old Montreal only does lunch service on Fridays. The walls are black, the ceilings are high with light fixtures as modern as it can get, and the bar table is all marble. It’s sleek, but not intimidatingly so. Like a lot of restaurants these days, there’s a semi-open kitchen where you can see Chef Marc-André Jetté and Patrice Demers working hard, and the smartly dressed staff strike the right amount of casual friendliness.

This was the most elegant dinner we’ve had; not only in terms of presentation, but the colours, textures and the combination of flavours were just perfect with nothing on the plate seeming extraneous. Our dinner started with the Mozzarella di Buffala with peach, fennel, almonds and Espelette pepper, followed by a moist Roasted Guinea Fowl Breast with earthy chanterelle mushrooms and a delicately Seared Scallops and Suckling Pig. To end our night we went for the aptly named Green dessert (a mature take on a granita using shaved iced green apple, pistachios, and olive oil over yoghurt). It was all very lovely and beautifully plated.
