I've just had one of my best meals in a long time at Patente et Machin. Not only the food was absolutely fabulous (Mushrooms with Foie Gras and Scallops & Argentinian Shrimps in a delicious clams sauce and the famous Pudding Chomeur with Aged Cheddar...More

I went here for dinner with my 3 siblings based on the NYT review. The menu is not available online anywhere because it changes frequently. I was not worried, because I can always find something I like. Unfortunately, that was not the case here. Every...More

From the looks outside or the surroundings, nothing hints to the food that is beeing prepared in this small location. Surprise surprise, great cuisine. Top chef inside a more that ordinary local. To bad the outside does not refect what is inside.

Thanks to a NYTimes article my husband found- we put this place on our dinner 'musts' while visiting QC with our teen children. We were lucky to get squeezed in to an early seating after calling one day in advance (so call earlier!) Our waiter...More
