First time in Montreal - Looking for dining advice...

Corporate_40 | Jun 12, 2012 01:22 PM

My wife and I are going to be in Montreal for 4th of July weekend for 5 days/4 nights. Its our first time in Montreal, and are also going to be able to enjoy the Jazz Festival that week.

I have my dinners picked out, and wanted your thoughts if I’m missing anything. I tried going through all of the other recommendations, but again, having never been there, I’m sure there’s something I left out.

I have dinner reservations for:

Les 400 Coups

Liverpool House

Garde Manger

Le Bremner

Some obvious ones missing from other posts are Joe Beef (I was unable to get a reservation, so I thought that Liverpool House would be a good alternative) and Au Pied de Cochon (haven’t tried making reservations yet, just not sure where I would fit it in). And I know I have two Chuck Hughes restaurants on my list, but I have to go to Garde Manger and the reviews sounds so positive for Le Bremner, I figured why not.

So anyway, are there any places I’m missing or changes you think I should make. Also, are there any uniquely Montreal dining things I should try? I’ve been told to go to La Banquise at least once, but not sure what other specialties to check out.

Thanks in advance for any help…
