My partner and I will be in Montreal Dec. 21-27. We are from New Orleans and are looking forward to some great food, as well as Ron's first glimpse of SNOW (Yes it is true). Staying at the Fairmont, I have gotten some great tips on this board for several meals but am still looking for something for Christmas day. I have received some menus from the Fairmont, but am very wary of most hotel food with the exception of a quick breakfast fix. Any suggestions? It doesn't need to be a huge blow-out, in fact I know that many places will be understaffed and overworked so would like to keep it rather modest. Being in the business I am more interested in quality food and service rather than the "scene". Any help would be most appreciated. Looking forward to APDC, l'express, lemec, etc. Any other suggestions for small, off-the "A" list restos would be great. Thanks!
