Montreal choices - HELP Please!

We are New Yorkers coming to Montreal for a romantic weekend, and of course, great food and wine. We will be there for 4 nights. I have made reservations at Joe Beef, APDC, and Anise. I am thinking of a casual bistro for the 4th night. I want something very typical for Montreal and something that I can't find here in NYC (and something not too expensive). Please help me pick a place for the 4th night! Thanks in advance.

      There's Le continental on St-Denis where the food is very good. The service leaves to be desired, but the food is always great.

      Yoyo, a great BYOW in the Plateau Mont-Royal.

        Ditto the above, especially Au Petit Extra. And don't forget:

          Hi Carswell!

          Say, when are you going to favor us with your review of Au 5ième péché?

          Reasonably priced bistro? I think you'd be pleased with either Au Petit Extra or Le Margaux.
