Le Bistro Montage Restaurant Review: The band has finished playing, but the night is still young and you're hungry. Where, in this early-to-bed town, do you find a decent meal? Most of Portland may be sleeping, but the crowd at Le Bistro Montage is wide awake. The huge, almost luridly dark, room is usually thronged past midnight with most of the seating at long communal tables. The cuisine stars Cajun and Southern dishes such as clam and andouille sausage, an array of linguine, and jalapeño-infused mac 'n' cheese. Lunch features po’ boys, brunch omelets and hash. Don't expect subtle food or subtle service; both are brash, but fun and satisfying. Drop in on a Monday or Tuesday evening when bottled wine is priced half-off. During earlier hours, the restaurant is surprisingly kid-friendly. If required, grown-ups can find a more adult atmosphere, but the same menu, in the adjoining La Merde cocktail lounge.
