Could you please translate this small bit of the restaurant guide. We
would need this by Tuesday night.
3439 rue St-Denis, (514) 842-2242 $10-15
Open Mon–Wed noon–10pm, Thu–Fri noon–11pm, weekends
5pm–11pm. Booking not essential, but might be an idea with a big
group, as there are only a few big tables.
>From the Palais, take the metro direction Montmorency to Sherbrooke,
get off onto St. Denis and walk downhill, it’s very near.
The décor is traditional Plateau French Victorian—ornate wood,
overlaid with Tibetan drapes and chimes and pictures, which makes
it seem somehow as if the Tibetans had colonized France, or perhaps
the other way around. There are a lot of kinds of delicious dumplings,
halfway between a won-ton and a pierogi, awesome soups, and
more Indian-style vegetables with rice. Lots of vegetarian choice,
some meat as well. The breads are great. You will, of course, order
butter tea whatever I say, because you’ve read about it all your life.
One between you will do!
2171 rue Crescent, (514) 849-9333 $40-60
Open 5pm–11pm. Booking a good idea but not essential.
>From the Palais: Walk or take 55 bus up St Laurent to St Laurent
metro, go on green line direction Angrignon to Peel, come out onto
Stanley, walk along Maissoneuve west to Crescent.
The style here is definitely Tsarist Russia, and with a whole pile of
vodka and caviar choices, you can definitely get decadent enough to
encourage the peasants to rise up and overthrow you. All the food is
very good, especially the pelimeni (dumplings) and borsht (soup) but
I recommend the wild boar with foie gras for pure melt-in-the-mouth
delicious. The desserts are great too. I tend to think of this as a
winter treat destination, but it is sufficiently air conditioned to make
you feel as if it’s cold outside.
Le Georgia Georgian
5112 boulevard Décarie, (514) 482-1881 $25-40
Open weekdays noon–10pm, weekends 2pm–midnight.
>From the Palais: take the metro direction Côte Vertu to Snowdon,
walk west down Côte St Mary to Décarie, and then turn north.
Georgian food is like Russian only spicier, closer to Hungarian. There
are an interesting variety of dumplings and goulashes.
