OK, we are Montreal foodies, French hubby cooks better than most chefs, and we have a babysitter but no reservations for this Saturday night. Tried LaPorte--booked. Thought about AREA since we hadn't been in a while, and only seating was at 6 something---too early! We are over PDC'd and were sadly disappointed with Joe Beef a few weeks ago as well as underwhelmed by MILOS a month ago. Your best suggestions for an interesting and GOOD meal at a resto where we we have a chance at reservations? Thought maybe Lémiac but wondering if there aren't better out there......what do you chowsters say?

    What about l'Atelier on St-Laurent ( north of Laurier) ? or maybe Cocagne on St-Denis or "La Monté de Lait" ( on ???, )

    or something different like Zumaia on St-Laurent or Pinxto ?

      L'atelier---haven't been but have heard good things--I think i will check tomorrow! Pinxto we like, but would also like to try something different---what is Zumaia?

        Zumaia is Pinxto's sibling; the cuisine is "Basque" oriented, from both side of the border, french basque with some spanish basque influence and the other way around.

        I went there couple of months ago, and was happy with the experience, but at the time, the restaurant was young and needed a bit more "rodage"

        You might also want to try Les deux singes de Montarvie on Saint-Viateur. Great food...
