I will be in Montreal from November 23 (Sat) to November 25 (Mon). We will be staying at Le St. Martin on Maisonneuve Ouest and I need some advice! We are coming from Toronto so we would like to eat at restaurants that are perhaps, distinctly Quebecois, or give us a good feel of what is going on in Montreal at the moment.
After having scoured the boards, I have come up with a list of restaurants that we would like to try for dinner on the two nights but have no idea how to narrow them down. And I am open to other suggestions.
1) Maison Publique
2) Le Filet
3) 400 Coups
4) 3 petits bouchons
5) Au Pied du Couchon (my husband has been 3 times and has loved it)
The one caveat is that I have a dairy and egg intolerance, and I'm a bit concerned at which restaurants are not willing to make any substitutions or modifications.
Also, I am having some difficulty coming up with places to go for lunch. I want good casual places where we can get a decent lunch but still be able to snack throughout the afternoon!
Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
