have perused the boards a LOT. still looking for the best recommendations. my first trip to Montreal will be in late June. I'm coming from NYC / Brooklyn and really really enjoy good food, but don't want to have a HUGE splurge meal, just something really tasty, authentic and in a nice dining atmosphere (cute and trendy or old and charming or...). hoping to find a french bistro or seafood restaurant in old montreal where one can get an entree for $25 or less that fits the bill.
Thinking of Holder right now, but had previously made reservations at Brasserie T! based on a NY Times article.
Any thoughts about this?
