I'm travelling to Montreal next week with my partner. We are adventerous eaters and wanted to try notable cuisine from a variety of restaurants. We're staying near McGill. After reading the posts here and consulting other reviews, we have planned the following:
Wed 6/30 "Le Planete"
Thu 7/1 "Cafe Ferreria"
Sun 7/4 "Pied de Cochon"
That leaves us with Fri & Sat open. We're looking for some variety (not all french bistro). We are considering Brunoise, Yoyo & Savannah. Any thoughts on those places? Alternative suggestions? Thoughts on the places we've picked so far?
We're also looking for input on things to see and do. We're big architecture buffs, so we're thinking about the CCA and we'd love to explore Montreal's neighborhoods (Little Italy, Plateau as well as the Village). We're also thinking about a boat trip on the St. Lawrence. Any other thoughts or ideas?
