In Montreal for the Weekend, looking for dinner companions

OrganicGourmet Feb 23, 2008 08:13 AM

Hi there,
I've visiting Montreal for the weekend only, and would love to head out for a great dinner with like-minded people. If any one is interested or if you have recommendations for a great restaurant that has good seating for a single diner, please send me your suggestions. I want to try something special...I've been reading a lot of press about how great the restaurant scene is here.

    It would help if we knew your budget, but for a single diner, a seat at the bar in front of the open kitchen at Au Pied de Cochon is a ring-side seat at the best show in town.

      Hey thanks, that was actually on the top of my hit list, and I'm heading over there now. Thanks! Oh, and my budget is generous, as long as the chef can deliver. I've enjoyed great Pho for under $10 and Otoro for $22 per piece. You know how it is!
      Thanks again. I'm around til Tuesday morning, so any more suggestion, please let me know.

        Schwartz has a policy of seating lone diners together when the restaurant is very busy. Head there at peak hours and you're sure to be crammed in with other friendly folk. It's a uniquely montreal food experience even if you end up eating alone.

          Hey thanks Moosemeat. I may try Schwartz tomorrow. I have a reservation at the bar tonight at Au Pied. I tried to get in late last night but it was crammed.
