Looking for a suggestions for a dinner with out of town business colleagues. I'm looking for something with Montreal charm - something that will gives upscale impression, yet remains casual. I'm not looking for cheap, but at the same time I don't want over the top (20-25$/main would be a guideline). We're a group of ten.
Obviously I'm looking for a quality dining experience, but also something that will please a diverse group of people of varying ages. I'd like to avoid the tourist traps if possible (even if the out of towners would probably fully enjoy...)
I'm also looking for a more "hip" place to enjoy cocktails after dinner - within walking distance would definitely be a plus (walking through old Montreal is always such a nice experience for out-of-towners).
All suggestions welcome, but I'm considering: Le Locale (but the walk around for after dinner isn't exactly full of sights to see), Holder, Garde-Manger (although I've never been and as such I'm weary)
Thanks in advance!
