Boucherie Lawrence, Montreal, 9/4/15

This is a smaller place where the menu changes daily. Their dozen 2-3 tops are constantly full and they offer a larger picnic table for larger parties. The kitchen is on one end of the room and you could see the guys coming in with supplies from their butcher shop which is located a couple of doors down. The plates are smaller and most are designed for sharing.

The waitress was most helpful in making selections and also in choosing a wine. I thought it was most gracious when she offered that if we didn’t like the wine to just say so cause they’d be glad to sell it by the glass and she’d find us another to try.  We started with the mustard pears which are pears soaked in a sweet syrup with mustard seasoning. They were paired with lardo on toast and it was splendid! The chanterelles with egg were nicely tasty and served with a ton of buttery onions but we pulled off the toast as you didn’t really need the extra filler. Besides I wanted to get my starch content from the fries with the lobster. These were served with some house made cheese that was creamy and nice and a wonderful contrast with the crispy fries. The lobster was sweet and full of flavor – this was a standout dish! The beef tartar was heavily seasoned with mustard and chives which was really nice. The mustard was actually stronger here than in the pears. Last was the tomato salad which was a mix of all shapes and colors of Heirlooms, served in a mild vinaigrette.  We chose the chocolate and blueberry tart on the waitress’ recommendation but even tho the chocolate was rich and creamy the blueberry flavor didn’t come through.
