If burgers are your thing, the Hôtel Nelligan's casual dining room is the place for you, with its excellent renditions of comfort food. The mighty Méchant hamburger (an 8-ounce patty with bacon, blue cheese, and carmelized onions) is a winner, but options like the beer-can chicken, crab cakes, hanger steak, and designer poutine are also crowd pleasers. For dessert, two can share the cheesecake. The food may be humble, but the atmosphere is cheeky and chic, with an interior
waterfall, brick walls, and an illuminated bar. A DJ spins music Thursday to Sunday, and rock bands perform Tuesday and Wednesday nights. The late-night (after 11 pm) menu offers two courses for C$23.
