Montreal Comfort Food a Hit in New York City

In "The Rise of Canadian Comfort Food in the Big Apple", T: The New York Times Style Magazine chronicles the proliferation of Montreal classics like poutine and smoked meat at restaurants all over the Big Apple.

Over the past few years, New Yorkers dissatisfied with small-plate politeness have found a welcome alternative in the meat-and-potatoes fare of Montreal-influenced dishes.

Restaurants that get a nod in the short piece by Jessica Loudis include Mile End Deli, French Louie and M. Wells, from ex-Au Pied de Cochon chef de cuisine Hugue Dufour.

The irony, of course, is that the small-plate politeness New Yorkers have apparently grown weary of is very much de rigueur in Montreal at the moment.
