help me impress my parents! (french bistro)

roarlaura | Feb 27, 2007 06:32 AM

My parents are coming to visit this weekend, and they're still a bit mad at me for moving faraway to the frozen north. So I need some recommendations to help them see how wonderful a city I now live in.

My mom spent years in Paris, and the fact that Montreal is francophone is one of its biggest redeeming qualities in her eyes. :) I thought we should go to a good French bistro on Saturday night. We ate at L'Express this summer when she visited, so I'd like to try something new. Above all I want something not too too expensive and pretentious, and preferably in the Plateau (lower or upper) so that they experience "my" neighborhood.

I see these names popping up: Au Petit Extra, L'Entre Miche, Le P'tit Plateau... The first two are more downtown, so I'd rather some other suggestions. Thoughts on P'tit Plateau? Has anyone been to La Prunelle on Duluth?
