Last night, Akemi and I visited Old Montreal, my neighborhood of choice should we ever get a place here. It’s beautiful, especially this time of year –
After taking a stroll, we headed over to our dining destination on this night: Le Bremner, sister restaurant to Garde Manger. There’s no signage outside the restaurant so, if you go, make sure you check the address.
A few of the culinary highlights –
Akemi’s hake and maple dashi clam chowder. She loved it – but found it too rich and could finish it. So I finished it for her.
The lobster BLT
Pancakes and sucre a la creme Pimms butter.
Equally terrific were the Jerusalem Artichoke 3 ways, the lamb heart & remoulade, and my lamb neck cavetelli.
Our dining companions: my friend (and future collaborator?) Anne-Marie Perrotta and her fiancé Jerome.
More good times – and equally good eating. But when I get back to Toronto, I’m ON THE PROGRAM!
