I'll be moving to Montreal next week, and I was hoping that some of you might be able to give me some tips (both restaurant- and grocery-wise) about my new neighbourhood. I'll be living on Rue Hutchison, just north or Bernard. And while I'm of course willing to explore the city, and am keen to check out some places I've heard about in the Plateau or near Jean Talon, what I'm really interested in are places within a short walk of where I'll be staying (so, Mile End, along Ave du Parc, my part of Outremont, etc.).
I'm happy to hear all suggestions. Some particular points of interest include: a banh mi place (or Vietnamese place in general), great pizza, and quality seafood.
I'll also be working at McGill, so I'd be interested in hearing about anything of interest near the university as well.
