Le Quartier Général is loud in the way that high-ceilinged bistros can be – a bring-your-own-bottle policy only drives the decibels up. Fortunately, you’ll enjoy hearing the food descriptions twice. Food here is, above all, pretty: Snails look like dark rosebuds nestled next to Bayonne ham. Grilled octopus, shelled edamame and goat milk yogurt is a play of pastels. If desserts like cheesecake riff on the 1980s, consider that Montreal’s BYOB scene was stuck in the late '90s until now.
