Six of us from Boston will be visiting Montreal in October. We are eating at Au Pied de Cochon one night. I have searched the boards and found it rather overwhelming, so was hoping someone might be able to recommend a restaurant for the the second night. Given that we'll be doing some serious eating at Au Pied de Cochon, and one of the group is a vegetarian that will have to suffer through that meal, we are looking for something a bit lighter, and fish and vegetable-biased, but not vegetarian. We recently had the bottle menu at L'Utopie in Quebec City, enjoyed that, and ideally would like something similar. Interesting ingredients and quite imaginative rather than Cassoulet, Duck Confit, Steak Frites etc. (all of which I do like mind you).
We're staying at Place D’Armes 55, St-Jacques Street West, Old Montreal. Thanks.
