La Maison at the Domaine de Bournissac, is a Michelin one-star property. La Maison's chef, Christian Peyre, begins lunch with St.-Pierre poêlée—sautéed John Dory capped with bacon and served with a mini copper casserole of cèpes—and finishes, two hours later, with crème brûlée subtly perfumed with verbena leaves and topped with a sugary crust caramelized to crackling perfection.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List

A Montreal mainstay for two decades, this bistro feels new thanks to the recent arrival of talented chef Marc-André Jetté and pastry chef Patrice Demers. Their menu of updated French classics—and a well-chosen, all-French wine list—keeps the room packed until 1 a.m. on weekends (late for Montreal).

We loved: Desserts like Breton with apple Tatin puree and aged-cheddar ice cream.

Insider tip: , Laloux’s sibling wine bar next door, serves excellent savory tarts.
