Fodor's Review

Frequently named Montréal's best restaurant (a very coveted title in this foodie capital), a meal at Toqué! is not so much about sustenance but rather about the experience. Located on the ground floor of a glass tower, this celebrated bastion of fine dining attracts government rainmakers and the expense-account crowd. Toqué is slang for "just a little stubborn," as in the chef's insistence on using fresh, local ingredients from the best providers. Therefore, the menu changes daily, depending on what the crew finds at the market, but foie gras, duck, and wild venison are staples. Some clients wouldn't consider ordering anything but the seven-course, C$115 dinner tasting menu. Chitchat at the tables revolves around famed chef Laprise's latest award and how lucky everyone is to have gotten a reservation
