This week, my wife and I are driving into Montreal from Williamsburg, Brooklyn and are planning out what restaurants we want to visit. We've scoured the Montreal Chowhound messageboard and they had some really great suggestions from other users. We're both in our 30s, I am a teacher and am into antiques and scouring flea markets. I like to eat meat and vegetables; into microbrews but generally tend to eat healthy. My wife eats no meat, loves french macarons, pour over coffee and vintage Chanel. :)
We're going to arrive on Montreal this Friday (April 15th) through next Tuesday. We've already made a reservation at Au Pied De Cochon on Sunday and have been trying to figure out if we want to go to Le Fillet and Lemeac. Between the two, they both look extremely good. What do you think?
Also, we're looking for casual eateries where we can get small plates for dinner as we don't want to eat too many big dinners while we're here. We both like the eating experience we had in Spain where we ate small dishes with good wine. We'd love to have that same experience in Montreal. Are there any places that anyone can recommend with this in mind?
Thank you kindly in advace of your suggestions. I'm currently looking for French inspired bakeries and pasteries in Montreal.
