Montreal: Brunch at L’Express

November 17th, 2010

When I asked around about places to go with my group of friends in Montreal, Zach from Midtown Lunch emailed me right away to direct me to his findings that he posted on Serious Eats a while back.
Only being there for a weekend, I didn’t get to check out a whole lot of it, but we did hit L’Express, on St. Denis in the French district for brunch our first morning there.

Lacking any sign except for the one on the pavement, L’Express is a little stealthy. Once inside though, it’s warm and friendly and reminded me of the Brasseries I’ve been to in Paris.
My friends and I had to get a little assistance on some of the vocabulary on the menu, but we all managed to find what we were looking for be it ham and eggs or marrow bones.

Seeing a Croque Monsieur on the menu, I asked for my favorite a Croque Madame but was declined. I improvised with a request for a side of an over easy egg. Really, there are few things in this world more satisfying.
I’ll refrain from the excess commentary and just make with the pictures of the rest of the meal. Enjoy!
