My husband and I will be in Montreal for an academic conference in mid March and I am trying to choose the meals in advance. We live in Brooklyn, so hoping to do the Montreal-French thing, but also maybe find a couple of non-meat places so we come back alive for the daughter we'll leave behind. This is what I have so far for dinner:
day 1- having dinner with a couple of vegetarian friends (also fromout of town) so I was thinking 5ePeche?
day 2- group dinner with work people at lemeac. i didn't choose it, but if you think it's horrendous, please let me know and I'll lobby to have it changed
day 3- DATE! Au Pied de Cochon
day 4- TRYING To decide. Options so far are Les 3 Petite Bouchons, Kitchennette, Kitchen Galerie, Laloux. Which one would you choose? Given we are (hoping) to go to APDC the day before, maybe some place with good fish selections? Also, maybe more moderately priced would be nice. Maybe Le Local?
The conference we'll be going to is in the Le Centre Sheraton (co-headquarters) and the Fairmont Queen Elizabeth (co-headquarters). Any recommendations for lunch and/or breakfast around there? Also, we'll be moving over the weekend to another hotel Le Relais Lyonnais in Rue St Denis, so a suggestion for brunch around there would also be great. (I assume we'll be making it to Schwartz, probably more than once!)
Finally, we'll be sans toddler so we want to take advantage and go out to drinks - can you recommend some good cocktail bars or nice places to have a drink?
