Moderators: I hope it's alright that I post this topic in both the Quebec and New England boards as it equally applies to both. If you feel differently feel free to remove one of the two.

Alright so it looks like we've come up with a basic outline for our first anniversary foodie road-trip in late-August 2010. The focal points of this trip will be Montreal and Quebec City but I'll lay it out in more detail and see what you guys think. Here we go:

Friday Night: Leave Abingdon, MD and hopefully make it to Albany, NY.
Food options: Tony Luke's in Philadelphia for dinner.

Saturday: Finish the drive up to Montreal.
Food options: Suggestions welcome.

Sunday: All day in Montreal.
Food options: Juliette et Chocolat. Jean-Talon Market. Suggestions welcome.

Monday: Breakfast in Montreal then drive to Quebec City.
Food options: Suggestions welcome.

Tuesday: All day in Quebec City.
Food options: Suggestions welcome.

**This is when the trip could go two different ways, I will separate our two options with a slash.

Wednesday: 2nd day in Quebec City / Breakfast in Quebec City then drive to Portland, ME.
Food options: Suggestions welcome.

Thursday: Breakfast in Quebec City then drive to Portland, ME. / All day in Portland, ME.
Food options: Lobster Shack at Two Lights. Suggestions welcome.

Friday: Breakfast in Portland, ME then drive to Boston, MA.
Food options: Clam Box in Ipswich, MA. J.T. Farnham's in Essex, MA. Suggestions welcome.

Saturday: Breakfast in Boston, MA then drive home to Abingdon, MD.
Food options: Breakfast at Mike & Patty's in Boston. Lunch at Still River Cafe in Eastford, CT. Lunch at Trackside Brick Oven Pizza in Wallingford, CT. Dinner at White Manna in Hackensack, NJ.

There are a few certainties we've already decided upon. We would like a decent dinner in all four cities including one very nice dinner which will be our anniversary dinner and the best possible lobster dinner along our projected route of travel. Also, Mike & Patty's and White Manna are definite stops as well as a stop for fried whole-belly clams (not sure where yet, suggestions welcome here! I think Clam Box is in the lead).
