Cabane á Sucre Au Pied de Cochon 2016

One of those "must do"  treks one should make if you're at all interested in food, culture and the concept of excess: Cabane á Sucre Au Pied de Cochon. Fois gras for miles, maple butter, local meats, and course after course of decadence. They do, indeed, bring take-away containers to the table at the outset, encouraging guests to set some of each dish aside, knowing full well the impossibility of completing the meal. 

The staff is warm and attentive, the atmosphere is cozy (given how packed in everyone it is around each table, it's inevitable), and the food is hedonistic—yet, somehow still convivial comforting.
