My brother and his soon-to-be wife are headed up to Canada next week for a honeymoon. They live in Portland ME. They'll be in Montreal for a few days, then in Quebec City.
For Montreal, they already are planning on dinners at:
Le Bremner (based partially on CH reviews)
So they are looking for other meals. Specifically, they want:
1) A place for a casual dinner in Montreal on Sunday night. Ideally somewhere they could just walk in without a reservation. Does not need to be French or Canadian food—it could be anything that is casual and delicious. They are staying pretty central in the city. They will be tired, so not looking for anything fancy or drawn out that night.
2) Suggestions for dinners in Quebec City. Casual places are preferred. Probably not looking for repeats of what they already ate in Montreal, so anything is fair game. Definitely prefer local types of places, potentially with local specialties/foods. Ideally different experiences than what they could get in Boston or Portland.
They are also interested in eating good poutine at some point, but that could happen anywhere. Any other ideas would be great, and if there are comparable places to Le Bremner or Leméac that are better, then they might consider changing their reservations, too.
Thanks in advance!
