Chez L'Épicier

311 Rue Saint-Paul Est
Montreal , Quebec , Canada http://www.chezlepicier.com/
(514) 878-2232

For eight years, chef Laurent Godbout has been putting a delicious spin on classics (try his pan-seared sea bass with squid-ink risotto, scallops, and a chorizo cream sauce) in this Old Montreal dining room—and he hasn’t missed a beat yet. The tables are draped in white linens, but the vibe is delightfully unpretentious, aided by the attached l’épicerie (grocery store), which stocks local gourmet products. Pick up a souvenir jar of artisanal olive oil or Godbout’s own maple vinegar on your way out.
