After lurking for years I've finally registered.
My fiance and I visit Montreal yearly where all we do is eat, drink and eat some more. It's "our" city so we decided that we'd elope there this September after 10 years of dating.
Thing is whenever we visit we don't really go to fine dining establishments, but obviously for our first meal as a married couple we want something special.
I've already done the searches and cancelled out a few places. There will be 4 of us and were foodies, but not so much into things like tongue, sweetbreads, fois gras etc. Two of us don't eat red meat (we were vegetarians for years and now enjoy poultry, fish and uh...bacon.) so APDC is out, I think Toque might be a wee bit out of our price range. Laloux looks good but one of our 4 is allergic to shell fish which there seems to be a lot of.
We love artisan cheese, craft beers, good wine, fresh and local produce, perfect bread, lots of butter, rustic homestyle foods as well as molecular gastronomy. Oh and dessert must be out of this world, lets make a baby mind blowing. (We'd be willing to go elsewhere for a good dessert.)
We're also getting married at 1:30 so we could possible to a later lunch/brunch instead of dinner.
Please help me find a perfect place!
On a side note...is there a market near the Fairmont hotel that sells flowers?
Thank you so much!
