My girlfriend and I are visiting Montreal in late August. Neither of us have ever been and are incredibly excited. We're coming in from New Orleans and take full advantage of all the good grub in our backyard. We're relatively down to earth, far prefer great food to a trendy atmosphere, and gravitate to divey neighborhood bars over shiek clubs. Would love any and all recommendations
Best local dish or dishes you can't get in the States and will miss once you leave?
Places the locals go?
Best bang for the buck?
Best place for that one meal when the budget's not a consideration?
Also, best bars?
Thank you so much for your help!!!
