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.

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

      Au 5ième péché

      Le P'tit Plateau (BYOB

        Hi Carswell!

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

      2. 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.

        1. au cinquieme peche on mont royale street provided the best restaurant lunch i have ever had in montreal in 30 years. absolutely fantastic for quality and value. highly recommended.
