I've just read the 5 Days in Montreal novel -- er, post/thread -- and boy, am I exhausted.
My wife will thank me for taking all of that time . . . >after< our trip . . . assuming that I gleaned the right choices from that long, long discussion. So, please help my marriage!
But I have another list to throw out to the Montreal Chow-ers:
La Couscoussiere d'Ali Baba
These are among the selections in Eyewitness Travel's *Top Ten: Montreal and Quebec City*.
I'm not attached to anything on this list (nor to that guidebook); I just chose these from the longer list that it had.
To help to gauge how you should react: My wife and I are, I guess, less interested in expensive/trendy places than are those who posted to Five Days. We don't eat beef and don't need seafood unless it's really unusual.
We are about sixty, serious but not grave when it comes to dining out, and willing to walk far, eat early, or put up with less than spotless surrounds.
Of places mentioned in the Five Days thread, I do have three questions:
Is Chien Fumant expensive/trendy? What cuisine is Romados? Damas?
