TIRE!!! Again, Quebecois-inspired cuisine graces the Midwest!
hmmm... bagel looks good... but doesn't look Montreal-esque... I need to get there to just for myself.
well-played Kindelsperger and Kamholz~ still can't believe you went to BellyQ after the completion of Day 1. That's just crazy talk.
let the taunting begin... but wait, don't comments like these below on Eater... :) I kid, I kid...
when cooked (read: fried) properly, I eat everything, shell included.
I'm still full...
Wait, that's a lie...
@Nick: It was my first time at Floriole~ heavenly to say the least! Cannelé was equally awesome.
@kelgar21: Snap. Even more excuse for me to get back down to Davanti Enoteca! I really love that place~
I would like to apply. :)
nice one! when prepared right, faux meat can be as tasty as the 'real' stuff~
Cai is ridiculously amazing. Dim sum aside, their a la carte menu is absolutely Hong Kong/spot on!
didn't know Goose had a poutine, a premium rendition no-less. I'll check it out tomorrow!
As the author of the piece, I was also thrown aback by the negative comments.
I also agree with @mrsdebdav and @Boston Otter!
It's a sandwich that tastes good. Period. That's why I featured it.
Hopefully people will have an open mind if they try it. I certainly did... and loved it.

@punkrockmartha there are some recipes online that 'apparently' emulate the sammy pretty well
@monopod not sure, but will reach out and check for you... The cheese nice and melted... not swiss, but the dairy feel was definitely apparent
@blake definitely had my fair share of dinners at PDC... imho, as much as I love foie gras, it isn't the most balanced use of the fatty goodness. Tasty tasty as hell, but not enough acid to cut the fat...
... or maybe I wasn't drinking enough wine with the meal. ;)
Their other foie dishes are superb tho. Plogue a Champlain (buckwheat pancakes, foie, apples, maple syrup, cider) is one of my all-time favorites!
from the looks of it, I should really consider opening up a Montréal-style diner/cassecroute in Chicago.
I could definitely go for a steamie right about now!
how could I forget Frites Alors!? Touché!
@heddylamar: Best in Montréal is at La Banquise (open 24/7 no less). They also have many non-traditional poutines (my fav is Le Galvaude: rotisserie chicken, peas and cheese... much like a Québec hot chicken sandwich). My guilty pleasure is the down-and-dirty poutine at Restaurant 'La Belle Province' (it's a chain diner all over Montreal, almost as ubiquitous as Starbucks).
Chez Ashton in Quebec City is unanimously go-to for that city.
I get that all the time.
Regardless, bottom line: Korean is the trend for 2012!
One can't forget about C-House... and Bar Toma!
As for little places, M Burger always hits the spot.
Balsan's brunch menu killer as well, especially with their homemade madeleines (so hard to come by good ones in Chicago).
mitsuwa = sugoi! oishii! amazing!
ginza (in tokyo hotel) great too, but sadly not as good as the former.
Hard to believe that no one said Balsan yet~
