One of Le Plateaus best
little bistros has moved across town, and we think the new La Montée
(formerly La Montée de lait on Villeneuve East) is a much needed
addition to the downtown expense-account scene.
The tented back patio is the perfect spot for a decadent weekday lunch
and miles away from afternoon office tedium. We positively drooled over
the fresh halibut with grated fennel ($21) and got giddy with
girlfriends over a glass (or two) of extra-brut sparkling Alsace ($11).
Now if we could only find someone to wine and dine us in the manner to
which weve grown accustomed.
