I've had to live away from Montreal for the past year but am bringing some friends back with me in July. I'd like to expose them to what I think Montreal does best: affordable neighborhood joints in the range of $30 entrees. I know that there are usually one or two places on top of this scene and I'd like to know which would be a safe bet now. I'm looking for the following characteristics:
Nothing too fancy, a focus on French/Quebec food, either BYOB or reasonably priced Table d'Hote (we want to stay in the range of about $70 per person after wine, tax and tip), takes reservations, consistent quality, accessible by metro. Bonus points for having larger portions as I am traveling with some... larger Americans used to eating a lot.
Failing a good recommendation, I'll probably just take them to APDC, but I'm kinda bored of it. Besides, chowhound has never let me down before!
Thanks in advance for your great recommendations!
