Le Lapin Saute Restaurant Review

: Enter Le Lapin Sauté and experience a typical family-friendly French-Canadian setting from the last century, complete with a crisply burning fireplace. The soothing ballads of the French singer Charles Aznavour add a little European style, along with the seats that are reminiscent of those found in Parisian cafés. Nestled in the Petit Champlain district, the restaurant prides itself on rabbit, but the eatery also serves duck, lamb and salmon. Appetizers include homemade rabbit rillettes, foie gras, snails, and sun-dried tomatoes served with a goat cheese sauce, which lacks intensity but satisfies nonetheless thanks to the molten cheese. The duet rabbit is served with country and Dijon mustards and a maple raspberry sauce; the rabbit ends up a bit dry, but once again, is counterbalanced by a rich sauce. For dessert, we suggest the maple syrup crème brûlée. The wine selection includes European, South American, U.S. and French varietals. There are also two dozen private imports, as is customary to sell in Quebec City.
