Wedding Anniversary dinner recommendations? Romantic, not too fussy

marcj | Sep 12, 2010 07:48 PM


I'm taking my wife up to Montreal next month to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We'll be there for three nights. I've already made dinner reservations for two of them--Le Club Chasse and APDC. I'm hoping you all can provide me with some guidance for the third night.

We're coming up from Wash DC, so we have ready access to fussy, modern fine dining. I'm not looking for anything ostentatious (although price is not really an object), which is why I've canceled my reservations at Toque and Europea. I'd like something that's romantic, French (or French-inspired), and intimate. Most of all, I'd like a place that is uniquely Montreal.

I'd say we're "foodies," although I'm not exactly sure what they means. At any rate, we take food seriously, and (I like to think) we appreciate a well-constructed meal. The quality of the food is at least as important to us as the room or the service. So basically, I'm looking for a place that has it all.

We'll be staying downtown, but I'm happy to travel (within the city).

Based on posts I've read so far, I think I'm leaning in the direction of the following (in no particular order): Les Trois Petits Bouchons, Kitchen Galerie, Au Cinquieme Peche, Laloux.

I'd love to hear any thoughts you all might have. Thanks in advance.
