Fodor's Expert Review Le Parlementaire

$$$ Outside the Old City Canadian

Despite its magnificent beaux-arts interior and its reasonable prices, the National Assembly's restaurant remains one of the best-kept secrets in town. Chef Yves Légaré prepares contemporary cuisine with products from Québec's various regions. In summer, for example, the three-course lunch menu typically includes everything from minifondues made with Charlevoix cheese to ravioli made from lobster caught in the Gaspé. Other dishes might include pork from the Beauce region, trout from the Magdalen Islands, and candied-duck salad. Breakfast is served weekdays from 8 to 11, and lunch from 11:30 to 2:30. Depending on the time of year, the restaurant also opens for breakfast and sometimes for Sunday brunch.
