Happy Bastille Day!

If I was in Montreal today, Bastille Day, I would book a table at Europea. The lovely restaurant's table d’hôte features a 5-8 course service using fresh Quebec ingredients.

Ooh la la!

Or at least I would go to the acclaimed resto's boutique, located just a few steps from the Notre-Dame Basilica. They have the most scrumptuous little macarons (macaroons in English), with such flavors as double pistachio, lemon + cream and mint with chocolate.

They look like mini-burgers but taste nothing like a Big Mac!
