Hi, two New York Chowhounds visiting Montreal. I haven't been there since I was ten so I don't know the city very well at all & browsing through all the threads is quite overwhelming! Here's my partial & incomplete list from what I've read:
Breakfast & Lunch:
Reservoir (for brunch)
Le Petit Aleb
Olive & Gourmando
Cluny Art Bar
*Au Pied De Cochon (this is definite, which day is best? Fri-Sun?)
Le P'tit Lateau
La Banquise Resto
Diex Du Ciel
Cocoa Locale, Fous Desserts, Juliette et Chocolat, Premier Moisson (for desserts & pastries)
Let me know if you have an opinion on any one of those -- must-visit, not worth it, etc. Also in what area are those restaurants?
We're staying here:
Castel Saint Denis Hotel
2099 Saint Denis Street Montreal, QC H2X 3K8 Canada
If you have any more recommendations, anything from breakfast to dinner (not too pricey, Au Pied du Cochon is our blow-out meal in Montreal and we're most likely having another one in Quebec City) that would be wonderful. We love any cuisine except for Italian and Mexican and prefer local and seasonal ingredients. And of course something we can't easily find in NYC would be a plus!
Much thanks in advance!
