When someone thinks of a hotel, they don’t necessarily think about a burger. Many of the elegant hotels cater to a fine dining crowd. These days, burgers are finding themselves on more and more fine dining menus. In Montreal, one of the most luxurious hotels on the entire island of Montreal is the Ritz Carlton. After closing for a few years for major renovations, they reopened in 2012 with a brand new restaurant named Maison Boulud.
Queue de Cheval is now located at 1181 de la Montagne.

On every restaurant related bucket list, there’s that place that seems a little bit above reach. It’s that one place that is synonymous with power and extravagance. Every city has one and not just anyone can set foot inside. For 15 years, La Queue de Cheval has been putting forth a reputation for just that. For one brief moment in time, a little prohibition allowed yours truly to cross another item off that elusive bucket list.

I’ve been waiting months to come to this location. I first found out about Taverne Gaspar around the same time I was doing Burger 105 at Méchant Boeuf. It turns out that those two restaurants are part of a family of similar establishments that are all located in the Old-Port area of Montreal. As a matter of fact, you can easily walk from each of their locations within minutes.

As some of you know, I’ve been trying to expand my reach outside the realm of the bacon cheeseburger in the last few months. Well, I couldn’t refuse an opportunity to try something that I’ve never done before in my life. As a matter of fact, it’s something that I’ve never done in any facet of my life. What I’m talking about is Korean BBQ.
