roozle and I have just returned from a well-balanced trip to Montreal: full of scenic vistas, historic interest, art galleries, fireworks, architecture, festivals, unpaved back roads, and most importantly a tremendous variety of excellent food. The best was Stash: a Polish bistro named for its founder, Stanislaw Pruszynski, and whose placemats advise the diner that "Everything tastes better with wódka, even wódka". We agreed and got shots of Wyborowa which was very tasty.

roozle had the Roast of Wild Boar menu, and I had the Primer menu. The barszcz was thin and delicate, and the salad hearty, which was the reverse of what I expected but quite delicious. roozle's meat and red cabbage worked well together but I thought the bigos and placki complemented each other perfectly and the other tastes from the krokiety and meat and cheese pierogis made for a more interesting meal.

The dessert was the weak point of the tables d'hote; the fruit squares were nice enough but not really very interesting. Perhaps something on the a la carte menu would have been better.
