Westerner Visiting Montreal for the First time - Dinner Recs needed!

freelancer | Jan 8, 2010 10:32 AM

I am visiting Montreal for the first time in March for 4 days and need lunch and dinner recs! I am visiting Toronto for 4 days and then flying to Montreal for another 4 days. My intention is a gastronomical tour. I’ll be staying downtown but don’t mind going the distance for a ‘must eat’ place. I’ve already read through the ‘solo diner’ threads.

The only thing I won’t eat is seafood and I’m willing to spend up to $100 on dinner (excluding alcohol), though it doesn’t have to be high end – it just has to be a food memory to remember!

For lunches, I will probably be very busy walking/shopping, so a quick lunch in these areas would be great: Rue St. Catherine, Rue St. Denis, Rue St. Laurent, etc. Any suggestions here would be great.

So far, I have decided on APDC – and I am guessing the recommendation to sit at the bar still stands, if dining alone (a friend might join me on this trip - not sure yet). It sounds like I should even go twice…

Also, I will be in Montreal on a Sunday night – so the best restaurant in the city that is open, please post!

Thank you in advance – I would really appreciate your thoughts. I look forward to visiting your fine city for the first time and hope to make this a lovely gastro tour!
