Looking for Valentine's Day dinner in Montreal

thenewlyweds | Feb 11, 2009 04:29 PM

Hi, we're New Yorkers who are looking forward to going to Montreal for our first time this weekend -- and honestly we are looking forward to trying poutine and your bagels as much as (or more than) the gourmet dinners.

But here's the problem - we do want to have a nice evening out on Valentine's Day. I've read through many of the Chowhound threads (love the posts, especially Carswell's) but it just seems like a lot of Montreal's top restaurants are a little . .testosterone-y. For example, the word "loud" comes up in reviews a lot. And we love Anthony Bourdain, but we have him here, thank you very much.

So we're looking for a slightly lower-key, slightly romantic dining experience -- it sounds like Anise would have been perfect, if it still existed ... for those who know New York I'm thinking the equivalent of the old Alison on Dominick, or of a Peter Kelly restaurant.

Currently leaning towards Europea, but I would welcome any weigh-ins . ..

many many thanks in advance!
