We have a group of 11 that will be in Montreal during the Easter weekend from Friday to Saturday.
We scored a reservation for all 11 of us at the Sugar Shack on Friday! There leaves Saturday brunch/lunch and Saturday dinner which we do not have reservations for. We were hoping to get into Au Pied de Cochon, but they're booked.
We are more than willing to split up the group into 2 and sit at different tables - even different seating times.
I've been to Garde Manger and loved it - but not as much as Au Pied. We have come to Montreal every year to eat here.
