Boston Pizza, Brossard
You're looking for a restaurant that offers a bit of everything? You and your friends are arguing about what you're going to eat? Pasta? Hamburgers? General Tao chicken? Well, this is the place you need... Maybe.
Boston Pizza reminded us of the traditional sports bar / restaurant (somewhat like La Cage aux Sports) that has forgotten to talk about sports. This is the ideal restaurant for a bunch of friends going out or even for a meal with your kids (though you should note that there is also a bar on the premises). The service is very nice. Our waiter joked around and was having fun with the kids from a neighbouring table.
The menu is particularly diversified. You'll quickly notice this if you visit their web page. We had the choice between pizzas, hamburgers, pasta, General Tao chicken, etc. Their appetizers are also varied. We tried their cactus potatoes, which are like home made chips served with a spicy sauce. We also tried the chicken wings, a bit spicy, a bit expensive.
Sandra tried the "Greek style" pizza (with feta cheese and black olives) and added extra grilled chicken. She found the taste to lack refinement and was a bit disappointed. I decided to try the spicy penne with Italian sausages. They also lacked some refinement and I was a bit disappointed. On the other hand, our teenager loved his pizza. All of our plates were generously filled, even the dessert. We split a "chocolate explosion" cake which was filled with pieces of cheese cake. It was tasty, but not terribly impressive.
Our conclusion? This is a simple, honest restaurant that's a bit too expensive for the quality of the meals they offer (about 80$ for three, including tip and a drink from the bar). But since it's open late, it seems ideal for friends that would rather have a good time than a good meal.
