Reviews for Monsieur B, Triple Crown and More

Lesley Chesterman bestows praise on BYOB bistro Monsieur B. One dish, in particular, scores: "Considering the low prices and the bring-your-own-wine savings, I would highly recommend Monsieur B for any budget-conscious gourmets. Oh, and I forgot to mention: the french fries." [Gazette]

Marie-Claude Lortie pays Dinette Triple Crown a visit and finds few faults, save perhaps a dearth of elbow room (a mention of the restaurant's imminent expansion is conspicuously absent). Botton line: more accolades for Colin Perry, Nicole Turcotte and company: "Charmant et efficace. On se sent rapidement chez soi dans ce lieu exigu où tout le monde se parle. Le concept sympathique et la bonne cuisine sans prétention." [La Presse]

Impasto wins over another critic; this time Andréanne Chevalier: "On trouve des restaurants italiens presque partout. Ils ne peuvent toutefois pas tous se targuer de faire voyager nos papilles comme si elles étaient en Italie. À l'Impasto, la simplicité et l'authenticité de la cuisine nous y transportent directement, avec une touche de classe." [Métro]

Similarly, Le H4C has another convert. Andrée Harvey is down - big time: "Tout! Le décor, les plats, l'ambiance musicale (juste assez discrète), la variété des vins en bouteille et au verre, la mise en valeur des produits locaux et l'attention portée aux détails. Il y a même une carte de thés!" [Voir]

Over on the casual front, Lorraine Carpenter scores some fiery fare at VIP in Park Ex: "The guy at the cash told me that chili chicken was the hottest dish on offer, and when I ordered it to go, a customer of South Asian origin warned me that my people don't take well to such spicy food, at least at first. Fair warning." [CultMTL]

Lannes & Pacifique is a decent BYOB on Beaubien says Emily Raine: "The portions are generous, so as long as you're kind to yourself at the SAQ, Lannes & Pacifique is a great spot to spoil your palate without spanking your wallet." [CultMTL]
