Best escargot and foie gras and Quebec City?

Hi Guys!

My husband and I will be travelling to Quebec City this Dec around christmas time. We're a bunch of foodies and really want to enjoy some top knotch French Cuisine. Any recommendations for amazing bistro's and restaurants where the locals go?? We're staying in the Lower Town but willing to travel anywhere. Thanks so much and your help is very appreciated!

Merci,

Elise

Well a great little restaurant in Lower town, on Petit Champlain, is Le Lapin Saute, which specializes in duck and rabbit dishes.

Another spot, in Upper Town, yes a tourist spot but if offers traditional Quebecois dishes, is Aux Anciens Canadians. Good escargot there, though served very differently from France. More in a cheese sauce than having to use tongs like in France. Many other places will offer it also

foie Gras seems more of a dinner appetizer for some reason. Le Champlain, the Chateau Frontenac's high end restaurant, offers some great pate as well as sauted which I love.

Best Foie Gras in town is at the Saint Amour and have it with a glas of Sauterne, ou of this world.

I checked out Saint Amour's website and anything that lists foie gras 5 ways has to be good. Question though, to anyone who knows, while the reviews here are all terrific, are they really open for lunch also and has anyone been there then and what was the experience? I'm not adverse to an expensive dinner, but I like a lunch option as well if possible.

Thanks

JDP - a lunch option could be Le Canard Goulu, on Maguire St. Very affordable and yummy. The restaurant is open for lunch on week days exclusively, the 'boutique' has more opening hours. And no tourists in sight :)

Yes Le St-Amour is open for lunch at more affordable prices than for dinner. A great way to discover the restaurant, I've been there a couple of times for lunch and never disappointed. Quebec is loaded with great restaurants, so no worries there.

enjoy
