It's Gramps' birthday this Sunday and I am in dire need of restaurant advice. Guests will be myself, girlfriend and brother (all mid twenties) with my parents (~50) and my elderly grandparents and great aunt. My grandparents are extremely picky and their palate is generally limited to traditional European food.
Due to their age and tastes my usual staples like Europea, D'N'A, L'orignal, Griffintown Cafe, Tuck Shop and the like are out of the question.
I'm hoping to avoid another mediocre meal, past birthday restaurants have included: Casa Minhota, Cafe Campagnolla (in LaSalle), Tasca (quite possible montreal's worst portuguese restaurant),
Any suggestions of decent restaurants with good portion sizes that are likely to please older guests while also offering something good for the rest of us would be greatly appreciated. No sushi, no portuguese.
If all else fails...we'll take them to Icehouse, if only to see their reaction when the fried chicken is dumped on the table.
