I'm visiting Montreal June 9 - 16 and am in need of some advice. This is our second time here. We visited last October and tried APDC, L'Express, Park, Kazu, Schwartz, La Banquise, St Viateur Bagels, Impasto, Le Cartet, Le Filet and Romans. We tried the following bakeries: Point G, Premiere Moisson, Patisserie Au Kouign Amann, Mamie Clafoutis, Maison Christian Faure, Julette et Chocolat, Harmonie and A la Folie.
June 9: Dinner - Gema (We land in the evening and staying by JT).
June 10: Dinner - Le Club Chasse et Peche
June 11: Dinner - Toque
June 12: Dinner - Bouillon Bik
June 13: Dinner - Liverpool house
June 14: Brunch - Salmigondis
Dinner - Was hoping for sushi but can't decide on a place.
June 15: Open
Lunch options I'm considering: Dinette Triple Crown, Le Cochon Cache and Noodle Factory. I'm definitely returning to St Viateur for bagels, I'm dreaming about the sesame one already.
So here's what I need:
-I'm not completely sold on Toque. I browsed through the menu and I just don't see what the fuss is. Should I swap that for Hotel Herman? Or another must try?
-I'm looking for some more casual lunch options. Specifically, I need something in Old Montreal/Chinatown and St. Catherine's/Downtown.
-Which sushi place do you recommend?
-Any other bakeries I should hit up this time?
-Is the Atwater Farmers market worth visiting?
We're open to anything and willing to try all sorts of cuisines.
