First time to Montreal and would like to hit some high points, restaurant-wise. We are staying at the Gault but are completely open to going outside the area for good food. Prefer casual dining rather than 3 hour 5 star evenings but price is not an issue. Atmosphere a plus but stuffy not enjoyable. Like up and coming restaurants but not trendiness over true quality. Made reservations at L'Express but don't know much about it-got a good review elsewhere. Have Wed evening to Sunday morning to experience the food of Montreal. ANy help is appreciated.
