Best Montreal resto for: oysters, fresh local produce, and a good cheese plate

I'm going through an oysters phase. In my university days, I never ordered them because, frankly, they were just too expensive. Now that I've been out of university for a few years, I have ordered them numerous times and understand why people are obsessed.

I also have a constant love for fresh produce that is handled well and cheese. If I could write ballads to veggies in season and to cheese, I would.

In the next few weeks, I'm looking to go out with some friends to enjoy all of the above. We will likely also get some wine with the meal. A vestige from my student days is that I hate being overcharged on wine (especially since I'm more of a beer drinker anyway). Ideally, I'd prefer not to go anywhere where bottles of wine are necessarily $50+ because the expense doesn't make sense to me (especially when the bottle costs $18 at the SAQ).

My question is this: where should we go for dinner? I was thinking Lawrence and Boullion Bilk, Club Chasse et Peche or Le Filet (none of which I have ever been to). Any other great ideas? Any of the above standout as the clear place we should go?

One other detail that may be worth noting - I am a 'non-picky' pescetarian (in other words, I don't eat animals that live outside of the water but really am not picky otherwise and actually am a very adventurous eater). Everyone else is omnivorous.
