[French: Café du Théâtre] 450

I rarely ventured beyond the limits of Montreal’s subway system (thank you short legs), and when it came to leaving the island, forget it, I simply refused to go.

…until last January, when everything changed.

Lured with the promise of food and wine on the occasion of le Café du Théâtre’s media opening, I finally made it to the other side of the bridge.

All buckled up,

450, here we come!

mtl food  snobLe Café du Théâtre is the fourth restaurant to open in the gigantic mall Quartier Dix30 in Brossard. Now, before you turn your nose up at suburban life, take a quick look at the pictures below. As the biggest snob on the premises that evening, I’ll be the first one to admit that the restaurant knocked me off of my high horse.café du théâtre mtl food snob blog café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 1 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog2 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 3The food, indeed, is good. Priced on par with what you’d find in the trendy part of the Mile End and Outremont, it comes in far more generous portions and without compromising the taste. Having picked and nibbled shamelessly from everybody’s plate, my conclusion is that meat is really where the party is at at le Café. The Coquilles St-Jacques were slightly too rich for my delicate arteries (butter, cream, cheese, butter, cream… HEART ATTACK). The hanger steak though was a juicy and savoury delight. And that’s not even mentioning the sweetbreads – oh sweetbreads – subtle in taste and tenderly complemented by the house porcini mushroom sauce.café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 6 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 5 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 7 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 8 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 9 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 10 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 11 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 22 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 14 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 13 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 15 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 12If you made the trip all the way from the Island, don’t leave without having one of their desserts. The Crêpe Suzette is probably your best bet to satisfy that sweet tooth without imploding. With a hint of Grand Marnier and a spoonful of vanilla ice, it will end your meal with elegance.café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 16 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 17 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 18 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 19 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 20 café du théâtre mtl food snob blog 21450, you’ve been good to me. Let’s hope it won’t take another quarter century before I see you again. À bientôt!
