5 days in Montreal - help us shorten our restaurant list!

glang | Jul 4, 2012 11:09 PM

Hi there Montreal hounds,

We've read some threads and there are way too many places we'd like to try (see below - blush). We like every kind of food, from ethnic hole-in-the-wall to cutting edge cuisine. We tend to crave Chinese food because it's terrible where we live (Colorado); seafood ditto. We are good cooks and like to go out for things we can't or wouldn't easily make better at home. Our budget allows for a couple of splurges, within reason.

Be brutal - we have to get this narrowed down to 5 dinners and 5 lunches! (Some of these could switch from dinner list to lunch list or vice versa; by all means weigh in on that as well.)

We have from midday on July 11th, through breakfast on Tuesday July 17th - Saturday dinner is out, we'll be at an Indian wedding (thus no Indian places on our list).

Thanks all!
