I got spoiled with a surprise lunch at Toqué, which is known as one of the best restaurants in Montreal (depending on who you speak to obviously). Given it’s fanciness I thought it would be quite gluten-free friendly and it sure was. I recently read that the head chef Normand Laprise is gluten intolerant which would increase the restaurants understanding of celiac disease. My boyfriend called in advance and told them I was celiac and they already had it noted when l arrived. I was told almost everything on the menu could be adapted to be gluten-free and was brought fresh gluten-free bread (which has only happened in 2 other restaurants in Montreal).
I ordered the beet and goat cheese salad and mackerel with mussels, clams and shiitake mushrooms as a main. Both our meals were delicious and I would definitely recommend Toqué and say it is incredibly gluten-free friendly.
While it’s expensive the lunch is reasonable for the quality, between 26$ and 50$ for the table d’hôte which includes a starter, main and coffee. Treat yourself or someone special to a nice gluten-free lunch or a fancy dinner. Reservations are a must.
