I have been reading through all the helpful suggestions for dining in Montreal, as my boyfriend & I will be taking a trip to the lovely city in August. I am very excited! We will be staying at the W...still can not figure out exactly what part of the city it is located in; I have read it is at the "gateway" to Old Montreal, the Old Port, Downtown, the Cite International...etc.
Anyhow, I digress. It appears that finding wonderful cuisine will not be an issue;picking amongst the numerous establishments will be, however. We do not wish to "overplan" our trip or our meals (i.e. a preset reservation for each evening), rather we would prefer to approach our meals in a more leisurely manner. Therefore, I was hoping someone could suggest establishments that serve a creative "bar menu", preferably within walking distance to the W. Thank you in advance, Jill
