Why Park Lafontaine Smells like Poutine

April 24, 2012

It is time to accept that Park Lafontaine is just going to smell like poutine day and night. Nearby Montreal Restaurant La Banquise is in such high demand any time day and night that the tempting odor of fries and gravy is frequently smelled wafting over the park, tempting picnickers and joggers alike.  Next time you are enjoying a day in this lovely park, why not give in to temptation, grab a burger and a poutine and enjoy it at one of the many picnic tables while you watch the well-dressed Plateau residents enjoy their favorite gathering place.

La Banquise is one of Montreal’s premier poutine destinations. Not content to serve the famous Quebec meal in it’s most usual incarnation, fries covered with cheese curds and slathered with gravy, this family restaurant features over twenty poutine variations, adding even more every month! You can order your poutine topped with three kinds of meat, or covered in Mexican toppings like sour cream and guacamole, or even with part of a turkey dinner! With this many poutine options, delicious burgers and hot dogs, combined with friendly service and a great location, it is no wonder that there is almost always a line winding outside the door at La Banquise.  The intimate restaurant features plenty of seating inside and on the back patio, but you always have the option of doing takeout and enjoying your poutine in the park. Open 24/7, this Plateau poutine joint is an institution in late night eats.
