It was my meal at Le Continental that finally brought me to a place where I could declare a favorite food... which is Duck L'Orange at Le Continental. The End.
It's prepared table-side and the time you spend staring over into the bubbling, aromatic pot that builds a level of anticipation that's almost as palatable as the dish itself. Inevitably the rest of the restaurant orders it after they smell it. I didn't know, but apparently there's such a thing as a "saucier", to exclusively make sauces. I believe they have employed one of the finest at this establishment.
Now that I've told you the most important part (it's the Duck L'Orange... the Duck L'Orange was the most important part), I do have to say the rest of the experience was nothing short of extraordinary. We had the pleasure of actually having our Christmas Eve dinner here, so that made it extra magical. Every staff member we encountered was beyond amazing- friendly, knowledgeable, and seemed almost as excited about our meal as we were. The coat check was complimentary (which meant a lot for Quebec in December!). The decor is simple elegance. While it is fine dining pricing, you get far beyond what you pay for.
If you ever get the chance, make special time to eat here... and order the Duck L'Orange. Trust me.
