I will be arriving in Montreal via Amtrak on 12/26 and departing 12/30. I had grand plans to eat at some of the city's best restaurants (Joe Beef, Au Pied de Cochon, Toque!), only to find out that they're closed during this time. I've been trying to determine what the general dining scene is like during this period but am not having a lot of luck. Does the city tend to be quieter? Do a lot of restaurants--not just fine dining, but more casual spots--close for the holidays?
