Quebec City , Quebec , Canada

Situated on an ancient cobblestoned street in the Old Port district, this casual French bistro is often packed with locals throughout the day. Inside, the restaurant is decorated with parquet floors, built-in wooden cabinets, large mirrors, and tentacle-like chandeliers with exposed bulbs. There's also a stainless-steel bar and a seasonal outdoor patio, which provides excellent people-watching. The menu includes French classics such as duck confit and steak frites, as well as more unusual dishes like conchiglioni pasta with duck gizzard and dried figs. L'Échaudé also has a well-priced, mostly French wine list and a late night menu of small plates.
