After years of working from home in the plateau & mile-end, I find myself, to my surprise, working out of a downtown office tower, on the corner of University & de Maisonneuve.
It's been years since it ever occurred to me to have lunch downtown, and I am sad (but not surprised) to find the the culinary wasteland of downtown appears not to have changed all that much.
So I'm wondering, chowhounders, what are your favourite places for reasonably-priced lunches in the downtown area - say btw sherbrooke & rene levesque; crescent & bleury.
The only decent place I can think of is Osaka on Bleury (but that's really on the outside edge of dt).
any great suggestions?
