alanrichmaninterviewsm.jpgÉminence grise food writer Alan Richman, a former Montrealer, heaps praise on both Le Vin Papillon and Maison Publique in a recent GQ article and takes the pulse of the city's current restaurant scene: "The best of the new restaurants I tried when I went to Montreal not long ago weren't upscale at all. Unfussy is now absolutely acceptable. Yet as relaxed as Maison Publique and Vin Papillon are, nothing separates the care they take with their cooking from what you'll find at more ceremonious restaurants." [GQ]
