My girlfriend and I are coming to visit Montreal for the first time in August. We are going to Toque for our "upscale" meal but are very open to suggestions for mid range and smaller restaurants for the rest of our trip. We are staying near the Latin Quarter but can travel.
We are both NY Hounds and I can tell by your board that you guys hate overly vague questions but we are absolutely open to any kind of food. Sushi, sandwiches, seafood, middle eastern, whatever. Most important is great food and friendly owners. We also enjoy visiting new neighborhoods and centering our visit on good food so we're willing to travel anywhere. We will have a car although we'd prefer to go by train if possible.
Also, if you guys have wine bars (NY has become overrun with them!) we'd love to hear your suggestions. Thanks for your help in advance and osrry for the long posting!
