Montreal: Dinner, lunch, and “Name that bar!”

mels | May 18, 2009 12:39 PM

I have been to Montreal once before, maybe 4 years ago, and loved every minute of it. I am an adventurous eater so no cuisine is off limits. However, I would love to find some great quality French or Greek restaurants (or restaurants with French or Greek influences), two cuisines I do not have regular access to at home, but all suggestions are welcome.

I have two dinners (ideally downtown or Old Montreal) and one lunch (ideally Old Montreal) to work with, possibly some late night snacking somewhere. Oh, and I missed out on the smoked meat sandwich last time. Is there anywhere decent within walking distance of the Rue Peel Metro station?

As for the price range, $20-$30 per entree for dinner is OK for one night. The other night I’d like to be more moderately priced.

Now for a game of “Name that Bar!”

I recall going to an English style pub on Rue Crescent with a nice beer list that was nice to sit around in and toss a few back. I only remember it was on the corner and I could see the lights from Hard Rock from this bar (opposite side of street). It sat slightly elevated above the street and the side windows were all opened up as it was warm out. It wasn’t very large. If I had to absolutely guess, I would say it was on the corner of Rue Crescent and Rue Sainte Catherine. Does anyone have any idea of where I am talking about, if it is even still open?

Any bar suggestions would be great. There are 4 of us in our early and mid 30s, interested in sitting down, having some drinks or beers and catching up with each other - no clubs, no madness. Any thoughts?
