My wife and I are making our first trip to Montreal over the (US) Thanksgiving weekend in late November. We're staying at Auberge Les Passants du Sans Soucy in Old Montreal. Breakfast is included in our hotel, so I don't need any help with that. We're will to range all over the city for great food. I was hoping you could offer some commentary with things already on our list.
Thursday lunch: Olive + Gourmando (we're looking for something casual in Old Montreal -- how will this work?)
Thursday dinner: Joe Beef
Friday lunch: We're going to be at the Oratory of St. Joseph). Is it a reasonable walk to head across Mont Royal and over to Schwartz's, St Viateur, etc.?
Friday dinner: I would love a recommendation for a good Middle Eastern place. How is Alep? It gets good reviews, but I'm not sure if there is an even better place for this type of food.
Saturday lunch: We will head to Marche Jean Talon just before lunch. I am assuming that we can eat lunch there, between samples, bakeries, and little prepared food stands, is that right?
Saturday dinner: Au Pied de Cochon
