Time to throw out whatever guidebooks you've been using. Ben's hasn't served a decent sandwich since the 1950's. If you want Montreal smoked meat (which is brisket by the way), head to Montreal Hebrew Delicatessen (aka Schwartz's)on St. Laurent, or to Lesters on Bernard.

To be exact, it's "Bens," not "Ben's." No apostrophes are allowed on Montreal signage, thanks to the language police. And, yeah, it sucks.

Enjoy AU Petit Extra, it's one of my favorites. I highly recommend the confit de canard.

Ben's has not served a decent smoked meat sandwich for years!
Sometimes Americans seem to take their information about Montreal from those anglos who left the city 25 years ago!
