I am a Montreal foodie who's planning a trip to your city in April. That's how serious I am about food, I am starting my research months ahead. I have been to NYC numerous times but always failed to try out any restos. I have mainly eaten in Chinatown or grabbed a quick bite somewhere. This time, I am hoping to find some really delicious restos and watering holes that you guys always go to.
I am looking for places that serve:
a) fresh seafood ie. lobster roll since we don't really have that in Montreal
b) fine french dining since there's so many places here
c) local favourites that you think it's worth a visit
d) a good bar/pub for food and drinks
I am keeping an open mind so the price range can vary. I am not really looking for famous nor trendy places, the only requirements I can think of are a comfortable atmosphere, unpretentious service and obviously, food to write home about!!
I am looking forward to seeing your suggestions, thanks again and if you ever pass by Montreal, I will be happy to help.
