Heading up I-87 to Montreal with my wife for our anniversary this weekend, commemorating the first trip we ever took together, nine years ago. Obviously, things have changed a little bit in that time, so I'm looking for some new lunch, dinner and dessert recommendations for a four-day trip. However, my wife is a vegetarian - dairy, but no fish - and I'm not.
We really liked Le Petit Alep on our last trip, so we'll probably go there again, but I'm stumped for additional options. I'm not a big fan of strictly vegetarian/vegan places, so I think Aux Vivres and Lola Rosa are out. L'Gros Luxe looks like it might have enough options for the both of us, but what else? Any other recommendations for Mediterranean? Any decent Indian options? We'd like to keep the prices reasonable, though I'd also like to find one place that would be suitable for an anniversary dinner. We'll be staying downtown, near the Bell Centre, but will have a car and have no problem taking the metro anywhere.
As for dessert, we'll definitely hit Kem CoBa for ice cream, but my wife is also a sucker for French pastry, so any pastry shop recommendations would be welcome. Meanwhile, I'm a sucker for pasteis de nata (Portuguese egg custard tarts), what's the best place to get those?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
