I'll be at a conference next week in Montreal at the Palais des Congres and I'm staying at a hotel near there. I want to know if folks have suggestions for places near the Palais des Congres that I should try.
I also want to try Au Pied De Cochon and La Banquise which are farther away from the hotel. In general, is taking the metro and walking the best way to get around or is it better to take a taxi? Are more areas safe to walk through?
