My girlfriend and I are going to be doing a road trip through middle-New England and hope to be able to spend about 2 days in Montreal while doing so. Skimming the message board, it is easy to see that Montreal has a huge culinary/dining scene and I'm having a problem sorting through the clutter, having never been there before.
I was wondering what restaurants you would all recommend for a 2 day stay. We'd prefer medium priced establishments, although we'll look at truly special spendy places as well. Favorite genres include "ethnic" (Asian, African, Indian, everything in between... we'll try anything), Jewish deli, vegetarian friendly restaurants, Italian, and seafood. We also have an absolute requirement for top-notch ice cream places. A close downtown proximity would be nice, since that's likely where we'll be staying. English-language friendly is an additional bonus, since we don't speak French.
Thanks to everyone in advance!
