A nice big pot filled with tender pieces of halibut, plump scallops, clams, mussels, shrimp and asparagus in a light, rich saffron broth peppered with flavourful bits of minced onion, red pepper, and chives. Served with plenty of bread for soaking up the fabulous broth. This pot is the perfect meal for a cold Montreal winter’s day.
Accords is a modern but cozy wine cellar restaurant located on Rue Notre Dame in Old Montreal, and is one of only a handful of natural wine bars in Canada. Chef Marc-André Lavergne focuses on using fresh, seasonal, high quality ingredients to make dishes inspired by whatever is being produced locally, collaborating with somellier Philip Morisset the create unusual but delicious wine parings.
Another standout dish is their smoked salmon fillet and yoghurt with dill. The smoky salmon has just the right amount of chewiness while still being tender on the inside, and pairs beautifully with the sauce and greens.
