When you were little, you dreamed about growing up and getting to eat whatever you wanted, like candy for every meal, unlimited soda, and zero broccoli. Au Pied de Cochon is like the grown-up version of that dream - it’s 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 tartare temaki, and an entire section dedicated to foie gras, in addition to lobster tanks brimming with fresh local seafood in the summer. And, from mid-February until early May, their sugar shack 45 minutes north of the city serves the most decadent maple feast you can imagine.
