I'll be coming for the Jazz Festival, and am looking for every possibility from snacks to all sorts of restaurants in the area. One of my favorite places, Vieux Istanbul is no longer. I know about Basha in Complexe Desjardins which has pretty decent shawarma. In Chinatown I like Pho Bang, but I haven't found Chinese that knocks my socks off.
A friend and I have a Friday 7:30 show followed by a 10 PM on 6/30, so we're looking for an early dinner; I suppose we can do Vieux Montreal if we go at 5:30--any great place for under $60 with moderate alcohol?
Any not to be missed place (anywhere in town) for Saturday brunch?
I'm really looking forward to visiting the Pinnacle ice cidery when we drive up from Burlington.
