steak frites

As a McGill alumni now living outside of Quebec, I have a soft spot for Montreal and try to get to town a few times each year. I have a meeting there coming up so am looking froward to a few days of good food. One thing I miss is Parisian style steak frites. I know there are already several threads about this topic, but the posts are dated and well- things can change pretty quickly in the restaurant business! (although the Chicken Tikka sandwich remains an amazing treat at Foubourg- as it did 15 years ago when I when I lived in Montreal!)

So any updated recommendations anyone? I realize opinions differ as to what a good steak frites entails, so let me give my bias- to me, an english steak and fries is a charbroiled, high quality aged cut of beef; but for french style steak frites I really want a hanger steak, glistening with butter and served with homemade skinny cut fries...mmmmmm (incidentally had a wonderful example of this during a recent trip to Quebec city at L'echaude). So - any suggestions for Montreal?
