Planning a trip to Montreal filled with good food...please help.

Hi all my SO and I are planning on traveling to Montreal from the 21th to the 24th and would like some suggestions of good places to dine out. We've both been to Montreal before on numerous occasions but this will be the first time where we'll have this much freedom to look for stuff to do/eat. We're both quite into good food but not so much into wine. We've done numerous Winter/Summerlicious events in Toronto and we really enjoyed restaurants like Nota Bene. We're just looking to fill out out trip will new experiences. The following are some of the things we'll be looking for.

First of all, we will not have a car hence we will only be able to commute downtown since we're staying at Sheraton downtown.

We will be there for 3 nights and would like to do one fancier dinner. She's really into Foie gras and duck confits so I'm definitely going to do that for one of the nights. Since we won't be drinking, I'm thinking a price range of $100 for the 2 of us should be enough for a couple apps, 2 entrees and one dessert. The other two nights, I would like to check out something a little less expensive, like a nice bistro or something with a unique atmosphere preferably somewhere with a prix fixe.

Moreover, she's really into desserts and chocolates. I would like to take her to a couple of nice bakeries that we normally don't see in Toronto.

We would also be looking for a couple of good breakfast places as well as nice lunch spots near the Sheraton that we can check out.

Thanks a lot guys. Any input would be great.
