Four Nights in Montreal

My wife and I are going to Montreal over Thanksgiving weekend. Special occasion - while I wouldn't say price is no object, we are certainly willing to splurge on at least a couple of meals.

We'd like the best quintessentially-Montreal (read new-French/bistro/Quebecois) meals we can find. The best two meals we've had in the past year were at Vancouver's Lumiere and Gordon Ramsay in London. We were in QC a few years ago and loved Laurie-Raphael.

I'm thinking Toque, but I have the slightest fear it is 'old-French' and/or stuffy. If someone can straighten me out one way or another, that would be great!

Anise sounds right up our alley, so I plan to make a res there. Also, L'Express sounds fun, and good for a less formal night out.

Any more suggestions? Any place serving Okanagan wines?

And what foodstuffs should I smuggle home from Montreal?

Thanks in advance,
