After two years of living in MTL I am now appealing to your collective wisdom to solve an ongoing problem. We are a group of graduate students that convene every Friday at the McGill grad pub after work. After several beers we are in the mood to go somewhere different, continue with good beer and, most importantly, eat some dinner. Since we are grad students we are relatively poor and, in fact, one of our group shuns almost anything remotely "fancy" or "hip" (he hates Reservoir, for example). Nearly every Friday we are unable to meet that criteria, especially in summer where having a terrasse is also important. Since we all live in different neighbourhoods, we try to stick to a relatively central location walking distance from McGill. We often go to and love L'Amere a Boire but their terrasse is small and it might be nice to expand our repertoire. Can anyone help us? Is there anywhere that can satisfy our picky bunch (mains should be less than $15)? THANK YOU!
