I and my girlfriend are heading up to Montreal for the first time next week. We know nothing about the city (well hell, as Americans, our knowledge of your whole country is embarrassingly sketchy). If you were us, where would go, what would you eat? We're only going to be there for 3 nights and two days. And we love to walk, take public transportation, and expore cities.
We're not so much looking for "nice" places because, hell, we got a lot of "nice" places here in New York City. And "nice" isn't really our style. But places that are unique or special or ethic... now you're talking!
Basically we'd love to hear about something good and memorable and, in particular, something interesting that we can't get here in New York (extra thanks if it's something we can't learn from guide books).
