Montreal this weekend

Montrealers m'aident, s'il vous plais...

I'm coming up from NYC for the weekend (which, admittedly, doesn't make a lot of sense from a weather standpoint) and was hoping I could get some recommendations. I've visited before, about two years ago in the summer, when walking around wasn't as chilling as this weekend promises to be! Could anyone help with the following:

1. Can you recommend a really good bistro relatively close to the St-Denis/Saint-Laurant area?

2. Any recommendations for restaurants with good organic foods on the menu (not necessarily vegetarian)?

3. Do you know if there's anything going on for Chinese New Year this weekend? (not necessarily chow-related; any events, performances, etc.)

4. I know that this is off-chow topic, so please e-mail me offsite if you'd like, but any recommendations for INDOOR actitivities or events would be appreciated. I've already taken in most of the museums, Biodome, etc. on my last visit, but if you know of anything going on that an out-of-towner might not pick up on through the regular channels (ie: not ultra-touristy), I'd welcome any suggestions (live music?) I know, I'm a wimp temperature-wise compared to the hardy Quebecois.

Thanks in advance for any info.
