THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW A PRIVATE EVENT SPACE Beaver Club Restaurant Review

: On the main floor of Montreal’s “Grand Dame,” Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth, is Beaver Club. There are no windows, giving the restaurant a private men's club vibe. Chef Martin Paquet is originally from Sorel and knows firsthand the finer points of French Canadian cuisine. To start, order pan-fried duckling foie gras (from Marieville, Quebec) with strawberry, rhubarb and maple caramel marmalade; the sweet, fruity mix nicely sets off the liver taste. Filet mignon flambéed tableside in Canadian Club whiskey is a sight, and as richly meaty as the generous slab of juicy prime rib bathed in a mix of miniature squash, bell peppers and beets. If dining for two, there are a few mains created for couples, such as beef Wellington. The after-dinner cheese plate offers a wide selection of local varieties, each served at precise temperatures and with fine wine pairings. Desserts are a work of considerable imagination, such as the trilogy of crème brûlée, the chocolate-orange temptation or a local favorite, the Quebec strawberries passionara. The Beaver Club’s gregarious waiters and maître d’ help navigate the 30-page wine list, which focuses on France and California, and also includes selections from Canada, Spain, New Zealand and South Africa. They might choose a winner like the Marcel Deiss Muscat d’Alsace, 2004.
