First Stop: Montreal


View An American Food Tour in a larger map

I've long wanted to go to Montreal. I've admired from afar the playful work (and groundbreaking "cookbook") of the city's unabashed ambassador, chef Martin Picard, and his bistro Au Pied de Cochon, which will be a mandatory stop on our American (and Canadian!) Food Tour


I also hear this city has bagels that make New York nervous, bustling markets, and numerous cheese shops to lose oneself in.

Here's where you come in--to help us start off, in the poll below, please vote for where you think we must go for bagels in Montreal. And in the comments below, feel free to add suggestions for bistros, breweries or bakeries (and more) that are worth exploring. As we eat (and drink) our way through the city this week, I'll be posting short reports and updating the map to show we're we've visited, and we'll be holding more polls as well.

Santé!

Producer's note: Thanks to readers Heavy D and hjli for pointing out that Schwartz's Deli doesn't serve bagels. We've taken Heavy D's advice and added R.E.A.L. Bagel as an alternative to Schwartz's in the poll below. All apologies!
