Help me plan my weekend chow in Montreal

marieber | Jul 12, 2007 06:05 PM

My husband and I are planning on a getaway weekend in Montreal in mid-October. We'll be there Oct 19-21, so I have primarily lunch and dinner Friday, and lunch and dinner Saturday. I've never been to Montreal and don't know much about Montreal eats. So help me!

Couple big questions:

What would be considered Montreal "street food" meaning, if I wanted a quick grab snack somewhere what would I be looking for and where would you recommend I get it?

Likewise, is there an official Montreal sandwich or lunch fare that I should know about? And likewise, were do you recommend I go?

Dinners -- looking for one nice restaurant (not necessarily "fancy" but GOOD!), not sure if we're too big on French food...I know I know...but there's plenty of time to make a reservation; the other dinner probably at a pub or something, and we want to view the hockey game (I think it's the Saturday) -- anyplace "classic"?

Lunches -- go wild, what do you recommend. Think casual chow!

Thanks in advance for anything! I'll be following this thread through October!! Have at it! Much appreciated...

Marie
