First trip to Montreal. Reccomendations?

tlk | Jan 13, 2010 12:09 PM

I and a group of my friends are heading to Montreal from Boston in March to celebrate (ugh!) my turning 40. I've never been to Montreal, and I'm very excited. I'd love to get some ideas for several places for us during our stay.

There will be a group of about 10 of us, and I'd love to hear some suggestions for a nice place for us to go for dinner on the Saturday night. We're staying Downtown/Old Montreal so maybe somewhere not too distant. We also have a vegetarian, so it would be great if he had more choices than just a salad. This will be the "Birthday Dinner" so maybe something special.

Any other ideas for "normal" (i.e. not an "event" dinner sort of place) places we shouldn't miss during the week?

Also I have a hankering for yummy Chinese food one night or for lunch.

And, finally, we're going snowshoeing on Mont Royal one night, so is there a place for yummy warm cocktails after that?

I know I'm asking for a ton here! Thanks in advance, and I look forward to all the suggestions. Also, I hope I can return the favor for any of you planning a trip to Boston!
