My girlfriend and I will soon be visiting your beautiful city (next week, in fact) for the first time, and are looking for some chowish advice.
During our two night stay, looking for a "fine dining" experience, as well as sampling Montreal's famous smoked meats.
Did a little research on the board here, and narrowed the list to the following
Le Petit Plateau
Ben's (seemingly disdained, actually)
Would appreciate any pointers in helping make the final choice. Atmosphere, price, and location not as important as quality of the food.
And, of course, any recs for places not on this list also much appreciated.
