I'm an ex-Montrealer (10+ years now) who will be in town this Thursday and Friday for the Museums and the Web conference. On Thursday night (after 9pm) a group of us (between 6-8 people) will be going out on the town after an early evening event. I'm looking for a place with a good wine list (including by-the-glass choices) and an option for small plates dining for those in the group who want to eat more (and no attitude for those who just want to drink); somewhere that would accommodate a slightly larger group and be fun and funky for the group of out-of-towners to which I'll be showing my old hometown.
Montreal laces that I already have been to recently that I like quite a bit: comptoir à vin « bouchonné » , Bu, APDC (but obviously not for this instance!)... How about some of the tapas places like Tapeo or Pintxo? Would they be appropriate? Other ideas?
And for Friday, any opinions on Joe Beef (for a smaller group between 2-4 people) or the Liverpool House?
Thanks in advance...
