      I love Misto restaurant on Mont-Royal...it is mostly pasta but with a new twist. They have a couple of dishes of fish and meat, but not a lot. There is osso bucco and salmon that are quite good. Their beef carpaccio is one of the best. However, it is not cheap. It depends if you are looking for less expensive. Your post does not talk about prices.

        I found Misto very overpriced for the pasta... it was very pedestrian for the price.

        since lunch is the new brunch - how about something classic like oysters? Friends were at Lémeac last week and enjoyed - if you don't know it, it's bistro fair, lovely room and service.

        I would also suggest trois petit bouchons, didn't know they did lunch.\

          For sure try Reservoir on Duluth, corner of St-Laurent. Their weekday lunches are amazing and it's a real local joint.
