Garde Manger

May 29, 2009

Located on a small street in the charming Vieux Montreal district, Garde Manger serves honest, simple, impressive food in a rustic chic setting. With exposed stone walls, blackboard menus, and a wildly oversized chandelier, the restaurant has gained a reputation for its fresh seafood and seasonal ingredients. The sea scallops with carrot butter literally melted in your mouth and the short rib braised in red wine was delightful. At night the restaurant transforms into a nightclub offering premium table service and encouraging patrons to use the bar and tables as their dance floor. Next time I will have to make room for their infamous fried mars bar dessert..

    I think this dinner has quickly risen to the top of my “Best Dinners in the Last Year” list. And let’s be honest Scanna, you wouldn’t have had the fried Mars bar even if you HAD room 🙂
