Ten Days in Montreal in Sept - What do you think of this resto itinerary?

EJCSanFran | Jun 16, 2006 12:34 AM

I’ll be spending ten days in Montreal (first visit) at the beginning of September. Based on my research on the board and elsewhere, here’s my resto schedule:

Mon – Chez L’Epicier
Tue – La Chronique
Wed – Tapeo
Thu – Laurie et Raphael (Quebec City)
Fri – L’Express
Sat – Toque
Sun – Area
Mon – Cocagne or Les Heretiers
Tue – Les Chevres
Wed - Brunoise

Au Pied de Cochon is missing – intentionally. I was torn, as it seems to be the most talked about resto in Montreal. But, much as it may tarnish my claim to being a “chowhound”, I’m not a big fan of foie gras… or, for that matter, huge portions of food, which seems to be an APDC signature…

We’ll also be squeezing in lunch at Schwartz’s and Olive & Gourmando; baked goods at Cheskie Heimishe Bakery (per Gourmet’s recommendation); bagels at St. Viateur and Fairmount; and a couple of recommended chocolatiers.

So, my questions to all are, what do you think of my restaurant itinerary? Am I missing anything major? Are there too many “fancy” places? Would you re-arrange the order or make any substitutions? And is Brunoise the best choice for our last night in town? Someplace special/maybe a little romantic would be a nice way to end our trip...

I’m also a little concerned about prices – have I chosen too many "$200+ for two" meals? I don’t really mind spending, but if I can economize without sacrificing quality (of food and service), all the better… Thanks, Chowhounds!
