Montreal foodie visiting for Easter - breakfast/lunch/wine shop/EL Ideas recommendations needed

estilker | Apr 2, 2012 01:12 PM

Will be visiting this weekend. So far I have booked:
G&T Oyster for lunch, Publican for dinner, EL Ideas for dinner.

Still looking for breakfast/brunch/lunch options. Deep dish pizza seems obligatory. Any good bakeries in River North around our hotel (State/Illinois)?

EL Ideas is BYOB. Where can I pick up a couple of decent bottles of wine (preferably around our hotel)? Also any tips on getting there? We have the 2nd service at 9:30pm. Public transport (seems a bit of walking is involved, not sure how sketchy the area is)? They offer a town car service for $30. Would taking a cab on our own be a better idea?

Also most places seem closed for Easter. So far I have found Vera that is open. Menu looks great and the staff were super friendly on the phone. Any other ideas?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
