Au Pied de Cochon is the restaurant that gave Montreal its reputation as a city of gluttony and excess, and eating here is a necessary experience. The menu is full of unique dishes like their duck-in-a-can and salt and maple sugar fries, an entire section dedicated to foie gras, and plenty of fresh local seafood. In other words, there's almost no better place in town to indulge in a rich meal. The same people have a sugar shack (traditional Québecois cabins where maple syrup gets made) about 45 minutes north of the city, where you can try the latest crop of syrup and all kinds of maple-adjacent food. Go early in the year for a most decadent maple feast or in the summertime when you can have a fabulous country picnic.
