QUÉBÉCOIS If you want to sit outdoors on the touristy, pedestrian-only part of rue Ste-Anne (it can be abuzz with action), find an open table at Le Pain Béni. It pegs its menu as “bistronomique,” a mix of high and low, with traditional French fare punctuated by avant-garde experimentation. Here’s an example: Smoked duck breast with apple vinegar, mascarpone espuma (foam), and pickled figs. If that’s too adventurous for you, Québec cheese fondue may hit the spot. Indoor seating is also a fine choice, with exposed stone and brick walls from the 1600s. The restaurant is located in the Auberge Place d’Armes, right next to the narrow art-lined walkway, rue du Trésor.
