Montreal Vacation Sunday to Thursday
We will be in Montreal from Sunday to Thursday, and we're looking for some places to dine at. We don't know the city at all so we're looking for something easy to get to in the vicinity of Hotel Ruby Foo's where we'll be staying, but will definitely go further by cab if there's something that good.
While not quite in the middle of nowhere, the hotel is not close to the best that montreal has to offer. If you want to keep travel time to a minimum you should head over to Monkland and check out the Taverne, Messob D'or, or any of the other numerous offerngs on the street. You are also not too far from the Jean Talon Market and parts of Little Italy.
Here are three suggestions. The first, Milos, is THE place for fresh fish in Montreal. The second, les Chevres, treats vegetables as respectfully as it does meat and fish. The last, Joe Beef, is a lively little bistro for enthusiastic Chowhounds. What all three have in common is a very strong emphasis on freshness and a high degree of respect for "the ingredient".
5357 ave. du Parc (between St-Viateur and Fairmount)
1201 Van Horne ave.
2491 Notre-Dame St. W
There are many, many more fine restaurants to choose from. Search this board. You are certain to find something that intrigues you.
EB_TO, just read any of the other threads about visiting Montreal. The only places around your hotel are Hot and Spicy, Baton Rouge, Burger King, etc.
I'm sorry to break it to you, but your hotel is in the middle of nowhere. You'll have to leave the neighbourhood if you want to eat anywhere worthwhile.
Well if you are on vacation in Montreal, you will HAVE to get away from near your hotel if you want to see anything. Ruby Foo is not in the best area of the city, foodwise as well as for sightseeing or shopping.
Like Rcianci asked, it would be easier to help you if you tell us what you like and your budget!
