Hi all,

Long time lurker, etc etc. from Toronto.

The fiancee and I have had many great food experiences in Montreal thanks to all of you. We have a couple of notches in our collective belt to fill out, namely Joe Beef, Toque, and Club Casse. Please let me know how I should solve this puzzle. Haven't booked a hotel yet, but it'll probably be downtown as usual and I'll be driving. This is what I have booked so far.

July 18
lunch/late lunch - ?
snack - ?
dinner - Joe Beef - 9:30

July 19
breakfast/brunch/lunch - ?
dinner - Club Casse - 5:45

July 20
breakfast/brunch/lunch - ?
dinner - ?

July 21
breakfast/brunch/lunch - ?
afterwards - probably Kouign Amann and Fairmont to pick up food before we leave

I believe that the Joe Beef reservation should stand firm, however I'm debating between lunch and dinner for Club Casse and Toque. How does lunch compare with dinner for both of those restaurants? Also, how would I book reservations, since OpenTable doesn't show any lunch slots for them?

Once that's complete, I'm not sure where else to go. I've been to 400 Coups, DNA (RIP), L'Express, APDC, Jardin Nelson, La Banquise, Schwartz's, Premiere Moisson, and the Jean Talon Market. I wouldn't mind going back to 400 Coups, either for lunch or dinner, Jardin Nelson, and the Jean Talon Market. The other places I've been to several times, and I'd like to take a hiatus.

Should I try Garde Manger? I've been to Le Bremner and it was ok, nothing outstanding.

I also know that on Mont-Royal, there's a place we pass on Saturdays and Sundays on the way to Kouign Amann, and it always looks like it's rammed for brunch. Is that place worth it?

Oh, and are there any cool bars/lounges to visit? Something along the lines of Death & Co in NYC.
