While the kids are away, we're off to play - Montreal weekend

shaiken | Aug 7, 201312:53 PM

While all three kids are magically at sleepaway camp at the same time, we’ve planned a long weekend in Montreal. We leave Westchester Thursday around 3:00 and head straight up 87.

We’ll be staying at the Nelligan.

We have an 11:30 p.m. reservation at l’Express Thursday night.

On Friday, we’re having dinner at Toque!

Our plans for daytime Friday / Saturday are to meander, eat, drink, get lost, eat and drink some more, etc. One day we want to stay in Vieux-Montréal - maybe Saturday so we can catch the fireworks in the evening - am I correct that they are every Saturday in August?

Also on our hit list is Upstairs for jazz and a stroll up Mont Royal.

We’ll leave after brunch on Sunday for which I had Boris Bistro in mind.

A friend recommended Borgata for dinner one night - I’m wondering if we can eat somewhere before going to Upstairs and just go for drinks and music later.

Any ideas for lunch near Mont Royal? Something quirky and unique, not too fancy but with a nice atmosphere and good food - type of food doesn’t really matter.

Anything else that should be on our hit list? Maybe a good cocktail or wine bar for an afternoon drink?
