Fodor's Expert Review Le Hobbit Bistro

$$$ Outside the Old City French

Tucked into a converted house that was built in 1846 and open since the 1970s, the nameis obviously inspired by Tolkien and harks to a slightly hippy past, but this restaurant is far from the shire, serving fresh, colorful salads, juicy burgers, and delectable tartares in a rustic-chic setting. Highlights include duck confit with a cranberry and orange compote, bison-cheek risotto, and apple-and-beet salad in a light vinaigrette. Breakfast features tasty egg sandwiches and flaky croissants. Black-and-white prints of St-Jean-Baptiste add a true neighborhood-bistro vibe.
