The food critic for Le Devoir enjoys Landry & Filles this week, the ploye-centric food truck hit gone brick-and-mortar over a year ago. "Une belle petite adresse ; belle, petite et savoureuse," writes Jean-Philippe Tastet. "Je vous recommande une visite. Vous en ressortirez détendus, divertis et repus."

Sounds like a formula for success. Partners Marc Landry, Josée-Ann Landry, and Lisa-Marie Veillette get it done, Tastet declares, thanks to hefty plates at affordable prices, polite and enthusiastic service, and cool, diner-like digs. The critic enjoys fried zucchini with curry mayo, and lemon and herb roast chicken. The showstopper, however, is rabbit three ways (stuffed saddle, thighs, ribs), served with mashed celeriac, and extras like coleslaw with house Thousand Island dressing, roasted Brussels sprouts with peanuts and chilies, and mashed potatoes.

Don't skip on the sides, Tastet counsels, because "chaque assiette ou bolinette est équilibrée, savoureuse, effectivement enthousiasmante." Desserts are less successful, but it's unlikely you'll have room for them anyway, the critic writes, half in jest. All told, it's another strong recommend for Landry & Filles, a nominee for restaurant of the year in 2015.
