Montreal's best-known French bistro enters the 21st century with its reputation firmly intact: flawless cuisine, imperturbable if somewhat Parisian service and a smoky, some would say loud, atmosphere. The menu rotates somewhat, and there are always daily specials, but l'Express is best known for the standards: pâte, foie gras and bouillabaisse appetizers (CAD6-CAD12); steak tartare, steak-frites and veal kidney main courses (CAD13-CAD22); and crème caramel or chocolate mousse desserts (CAD5-CAD8). The exclusively French wine list is a reasonably-priced gem, and offers many by the glass (CAD6-CAD12).
