Eating Montréal - Fairmount Queen Elizabeth Hotel

Our time in Montréal was interesting, but there's no doubt that the artful execution and quality of the food is unlike anything I've ever experienced. One particularly amazing dish was the cream of mushroom soup in the hotel restaurant Le Montrealais Bistro-bar which is also is where the room service comes from. When we go on vacation, we don't spend a lot of money, but we always splurge on local cuisine, particularly room service if the hotel is a little extravagant.

Steak sandwich from the restaurant inside the Fairmount Queen Elizabeth (room service). This sandwich was simply steak and bread and it was the single best thing I had to eat while in Montréal.

Scallops with sun dried tomaotes and portabello mushrooms - room service

Large Pizza - room service

Small Pizza - room service

I didn't get to taste this napoleon, but I was assured that it was incredible.

Pastry in the underground mall underneath the Fairmount Queen Elizabeth hotel. We walked down every day to take a look at the insane French pastry. I was in foodie heaven...
