Canadian Thanksgiving in Montreal: Where and what to eat

withabandon | Jul 30, 2012 10:01 PM


My daughter is a McGill student living in the Ghetto. I'm going to visit her over your Thanksgiving weekend this fall. We're from the US and since she never comes home for our Thanksgiving I thought we might do something traditionally Canadian, since that is when I'll be there.

So, are there traditional foods for Thanksgiving? Are there any nice restaurants that serve whatever traditional fare might be? Is Monday the day to celebrate-- or is it traditional to do so on any day over the weekend?

I'd love recommendations in general for some interesting places to eat. We are foodies and enjoy the full range of places-- from fine dining to hole in the wall type places. We've eaten in a couple of really good places in Old Montreal and one in Little Italy on other visits, We are open to trying new places. I'd like to take her one or two places she can't afford on her student budget.

I look forward to your replies!
