I'm visiting from New York, staying downtown for a conference, and find myself with a bad cold, so I won't be joining big groups for dinners and late nights, but I still want to eat well. I'd really love recommendations of places that would be friendly and delicious nearby (I'm happy taking the metro or bus to nearby neighborhoods - I'm on rene-levesque and l'hotel-de-ville). Specifications:
-A place that's good for a singleton - nice counter/bar service would be great
-Quieter places are welcome
-Any cuisine, but some ideas are Montreal cuisine, Japanese, Portuguese, French
-Elegant, not touristy
-Price point up to $20/entree
-Good wine is a plus
Thanks so much.
