Too many reservations for Montreal!

freshstart19 | Jul 14, 2012 10:17 AM

Hi. We're coming to Montreal for our 15th anniversary in a couple of weeks. I received great recommendations on this site. I've made way too many reservations and am now trying to figure out which to cancel since I do not want to go overboard and spend $800 to $1000 on food. I splugred on the hotel in Old Montreal.

So, which should I cancel? Thinking I will probably not try foie gras but may try poutine. I'm really not a foodie but definitely got caught up in finding "the" place for our anniversary. I've now read bad reviews for my choice for our anniversary and am now doubting that.

Our anniversary dinner at Les 400 Coups. Friday lunch at Club Chasse et Peche with dinner at Au Pied de Cochon. Definitely thinking of canceling one of those. Doing both on the same day is probably too much. Sat night at Garde Manger. I got up at 3:30am to try to get the Garde Manger reservation and only 6:45 was available so I grabbed it. I'm probably going to keep at least 2 of these reservations. Wondering if Club Chasse et Peche is a better choice for our anniversary dinner?

Am in the process now of printing out menus for places like Restuarant Holder, F Bar, Brasserie T, Laloux to see how many some of those would work. Really don't want to worry about ordering wine because food is so expensive. I'm overthinking this way too much! Getting to the point that I'd rather go where I get a great pizza with a good bottle of wine instead of worrying about how much wine will cost in addition to dinner.
