I have an American friend staying with me in the city and tonight is her last night in town...
I would like to take her out somewhere nice, but everything seems to be closed on Monday.
To give you an idea, here's what the past week has looked like:
Monday dinner - Lemeac
Tuesday brunch - Olive et Gourmando
Tuesday dinner - ??? - (I think we did Pop/Laloux)
Wednesday brunch - Lawrence
Wednesday dinner - Magpies
Wednesday cocktails - Sparrow
Thursday breakfast - Bagels Etc
Thursday mid-aft - JTMarket
Thursday dinner - Kazu
Friday lunch - Pho Lien
Friday dinner - Le Club Chasse et Peche
Saturday brunch - Le Cartet
Saturday dinner - Au 5ieme Peche
Sunday breakfast - La Brigade Volante
Sunday dinner - Pintxo
I did Pintxo w/o her yesterday and it was by far the most enjoyable meal I've had all week, if not all year in the city. I'm considering taking her back only she's pescatarian-(?) veg/fish -- so not ideal for tapas with 2 people, I don't think.
I would have really liked to have done Les Trois Petits Bouchons, Les 400 Coups, Chez l'Épicier, Le Chien Fumant, La Montée or something along these lines... but it's Monday night and I can't think of anything of this quality that's open.
I think the kitchen at Mas Cuisine is cooking on Mondays... can anyone offer feedback in comparisson to the above choices and based on the list of places above that we've been to this week? Has anyone been to Graziella recently; is that boring for a last night in Montreal? Ferreira maybe?? What about Orexi, is it true that they are closed for good? Is Atma open tonight?
