I'm going to be in Montreal (2 nights) and Quebec City (4 nights) in early August. I'd really appreciate any recommendations for places that allow BYO and have excellent food. I won't say that price is no object, but I'm not adverse to paying for a great meal.
I collect small production wines (less than 400 cases made), mainly from California, and will probably be bringing some highly regarded Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauv. with me. Since there are three of us, I can bring 6 bottles from the States (I might bring only 4) and can guarantee that they are not wines that will be on a list or available thru the SAQ.
I'm also looking for places that have great food and a great wine list for at least one night. Any recommendations from locals for places that are off the regular tourist path would be greatly appreciated.
I will be staying in the Old City in both places, but don't need to limit myself to restaurants there. I'm willing to take a cab to almost anywhere if the meal is worth it.
Thanks in advance for any help.
