I am traveling to Montreal for the long weekend. Last year I had the pleasure of visiting over Labor Day and having been looking forward to this visit ever since. We will be traveling with another couple that has not experienced Montreal. Some of the highlights from last time were: goat cheese salad, short rib, and pain perdue @ lemeac and a few hours at Baldwin Barmacie, tasting menu w/ wine pairing @ Toque!, a pit stop at Fairmount Bagel, weekday lunch special @ Estiatorio Milos, and Saturday lunch @ Jean-Talon Market.
I have a few decisions to make for the group and would appreciate your suggestions. Price is not much of an issue, one person in the group is a pescatarian so APDC is out.
Lemeac, Cafe Ferreira, Le Local
Jean-Talon Market - Lunch nearby / Perhaps Le Petit Alep, Le Petite Marche or Byblos
Toque or Le Club Chasse et Pesche
I believe Lemeac and Le Local are open on Sunday night for dinner - Whichever one we don't go to on Friday or Deca 77.
Nothing too heavy as we have a long haul back home. Estiatorio Milos?
On Saturday night we are looking to go out after dinner. Looking for a lively place, good drinks or wine, a bit trendy, not full of college age kids. Some of the suggestions I have come across are: L'assommoir, Plan B, Edgar Hypertaverne, Buvette Chez Simone / Bouchonne, BU and Pullman.
