Torontonian's recount of Montreal feast (Leméac, Bistro Bistro, Cube, and more) Long.

Two Torontonian foodies staying at Hotel St Paul this weekend. I've been diligently skimming the past few pages of the forum and picking on what I think fits us: we want more of a 'Montreal French' experience in a bistro sense as well as potentially a little more luxe and modern meal too. Thoughts/inputs/additions on my choices would be fantastic. As a baseline we've been to l'express on the last trip and thought it was great. Would like to experience more of that perhaps in a little more elevated setting.

Holder - steps away and seems like a great little bistro

olive et gourmando - again close and keeps coming up in the forums, thinking good for lunch

Cube - Somewhat more expensive then we wanted but is it worth it? Of course it's right in our hotel...

Anise/Chez l'épicier - One of these will probably be our fancier dinner. The menu of Chez L'epicier appeals more to me...

Leméac- would quite like to try their $20 for app and main after 10PM deal. Have also read this is kid friendly and has brunch?

au petit extra - looks like a charming bistro but not terribly close - worth it?

laloux - if we're in neighbourhood considering this as well

SECONDLY we will be joining a larger family group of 7 staying at the Omni. They will have kids 11 and 14. Half of the party is visiting overseas from Hong Kong and enjoys 'Western' food but a more staid menu or greater variety might be in order.

Right now am just thinking Au Pied du Couchon... Any other thoughts?
