Au Pied de Cochon takes the cake

I’ve eaten at Au Pied de Cochon, Anthony Bourdain’s favourite Cana­dian restau­rant, a few times over the past few years.

But my recent meal at this famous Mon­treal eatery owned by “wild chef” Mar­tin Picard and known for its love of pork, affin­ity for foie gras and sub­limely downhome-yet-modern  take on Que­bec fare was by far the best yet.

There is a steak in Spanish Harlem

In Jan­u­ary, I was vis­it­ing my brother Eric in the heart of West Harlem where he now lives when the steak crav­ing struck.

Only one year apart in age, my bro and I have sim­i­lar taste in food. In a nut­shell, we both like to eat. And on this par­tic­u­lar day, a hunk of red meat was the mutu­ally desired dish du jour.
