An Obscure Treasure
257 Rue Prince, Montréal, QC H3C 2N4
We started off the night by walking right past the restaurant 3 times. Le Serpent is practically unidentifiable from the outside, but visually stunning on the inside. The space feels quite unique in both its shape and décor. The room is long, narrow, and L-shaped and its ceilings are adorned with large industrial lighting fixtures.
As part of the same group as Le Filet and Le Club Chasse et Pêche, it is a given that service will be impeccable. The waiter explained the menu and specials in detail and suggested wine pairings for several dishes. We started with the ''Kit of 3'' - a dish featuring three types of raw fish, each served in a distinct fashion. The salmon and jalapeno combination was my personal favourite, while my date preferred the hamachi.
