Going to Montreal on weekend to cover restaurants and shopping. What fun! Last year stayed at Bonaparte (place was great, resto terrible); ate at L'Express (attiude with bad food), and adored Atwater Market (discovered great local chevre). Now looking for 4 great places to explore for dining. My list includes: La Louisianne, Toque, Chez l'Epicier. Bistro Java U, Messhall, Daou. What do you locals think? Additions? How do I get to St. Viateur for bagels?
Shopping: any new Montreal designers/shops? Great stores to discover different from NYC.
Grateful for all your suggestion. I'll sway for my favs in NYC.
