Fodor's Review

Inspired by Tolkien, Le Hobbit Bistro is also legendary in its own way—albeit on a much smaller scale. Tucked into a converted house that was built in 1846 and open since the 1970s, this little restaurant serves fresh, colorful salads, juicy burgers, and delectable tartares. Highlights include duck confit with a cranberry and orange compote, and apple-and-beet salad in a light vinaigrette. Order à la carte or from three prix-fixe options, aptly named Hunger, Greed, and Decadence. Breakfast is just as good as dinner, with tasty egg sandwiches and flaky croissants. Black-and-white prints of St-Jean-Baptiste create a true neighborhood-bistro vibe.
