Planning a visit in mid-May. My boyfriend has never been to Montreal and I haven't been since I was a kid. We will be there for five days and are staying near in The Plateau neighborhood.
Living in NYC, we love excellent food of all kinds. We're not planning on going ultra high-end this trip, but are interested in what I assume are "mid-range" restaurants for Montreal—Joe Beef, Au Pied de Cochon, Le Bremner, etc.
So far our list includes all of the above as well as visits to Boulangerie Guillaume and Jean Talon Market. Would love a rec (or a direction to previous threads—didn't find much in search) of other Montreal must eats. Also, we love great coffee and cocktails, so a nice coffee shop to visit and a few good bars would be appreciated too.
