My fiance and I will be in Montreal this long weekend to eat and eat some more. However, life got in the way, and I was not able to make reservations at restaurants I found on Chowhound from all your wonderful suggestions. I was able to get a reservation at Le Club Chasse et Peche for Friday dinner, but Au Pied de Cochon and Joe Beef were fully booked, sadly, as they sound like such great dining experiences!
First, does anyone have a reservation for 2 that they'd like to offer up?? Haha I realize this is a strong request, and I'm not sure what I can do in return... maybe return the reservation favor for a restaurant in NYC?
If not, does anyone have suggestions for delicious places to eat for Saturday, Sunday, or Monday, lunch or dinner that I can book last minute? I think the hardest to find will be the dinners as I'm sure I'll be able to do poutine or smoked meat for lunch. In NYC restaurants reserve tables for walk-in customers, but it seems that this is not something done in Montreal (at least I got some confused answers when I asked!).
Just looking for a good food experience and taste of Montreal. We're in town from NYC and really didn't have any plans other than to eat through Montreal, hence the disappointment in myself for not having anything booked! We welcome your advice, and thanks in advance!
