Am coming to MTL in June. What are some good restaurants in the gay village. Got any ideas for a birthday celebration (moderate)? Thanks!

    O'Thym has good food, it's also a BYOB, so it'll help you stay in the moderate range! Enjoy your stay.

      Brunoise on St. Andre is great.

        Good pick, but Brunoise is not in the Village. It's in the Plateau. It wouldn't be a bad idea to try and check out place outside the Village though, since most of the restaurants there are rather bad.

        I haven't been there in ages since I worked in the neighbourhood, but if you're into sushi, I remember Miyako as being excellent and reasonably priced - if anyone's been there recently and knows otherwise, do chime in!

          If you are into sushi than I think that Taro would be a better choice with perhaps the most inventive maki's in montreal. It also an atmosphere more in keeping with a party, especially after 11p.m.

            I would recommend La Loïe just south of the village on the corner of René-Lévesque and Panet Street. Beautiful French Bistro with inventive dishes, a real foodie experience.

          Well. It's not GREAT, but it's decent: Le Saloon, on St-Catherine. Great ambiance for a party, decent food and lovely martinis!

            Saloon has great ambiance that's for sure! But overly priced mediocre uninteresting food.

            How about St. Hubert? Very local thing....lol. I'M JOKING!

            Further down the street - I think the sister to Miyako opened a shabu shabu - japanese hot pot. Though may be a little hot for summer but it was fun and good!

            I like Bato Thai on Ste-Catherine!
            Low-key atmosphere, very reasonable prices - and delicious food.
