Au Pied de Cochon

Martin Picard’s cult restaurant was conceived less for the gourmet than the gourmand. And the unapologetically gluttonous appeal of the original menu items that made its reputation—like the foie gras poutine, and duck in a can—remain the guiding culinary principle here. If your doctor has explicitly forbidden a full meal at PDC (it happens) then at least sample the experience with a drink at the lively bar, and with a few small snacks, like foie gras cromesquis or perhaps some tarragon pickled deer tongue. If you want to go all out, have the namesake stuffed pigs trotter, which is enormous, packed with cubed foie gras, and plated with a ladle full of pommes purée. It can serve an entire family. On a more refined note, Picard also makes excellent boudin noir—thickened with chestnut flour, presumably inspired by the boudins of Auvergne. The wine list is solid. An evening spent here cannot help but be memorable
