Munching Near the Ritz
Going to be at the Ritz the first weekend in April and we're looking for dinner options that aren't too far away: we're going to do one BIG dinner (expensive) and the other two will be less painful on the wallet. Saturday / Sunday / Monday night and NO ITALIAN!!!
Also, what about breakfast? I don't want to be married to eating at the Ritz necessarily!
I'm going to try and keep you close to the Ritz: Lots of restaurants are closed sunday night so l'Entrecôte St. Jean might be a good option, it's a decent steak/ frites option, great profiterolles for dessert, it's a prix fixe menu, $22 gives you 4 courses, I think.
It's on Peel, close to de Maisonneuve, on the north west side.
Monday night in that area, my favorite chinese is Orchidée de Chine, across from the above restaurant.
Saturday night I would go to Bronte, for your expensive meal, on Sherbrooke street west, corner St. Mathieu; it's my new favorite and I'm beginning to sound like a broken record but you are very close to it staying at the Ritz.
For breakfast, I would head out to Vasco de Gamas, on Peel also , between de Maisonneuve and ste Catherine, they also do a great lunch, they are related to Ferreira, so I always have the smoked salmon bagel. Première Moisson on Sherbrooke st west does a good lunch also, and continental breakfast.
I've pretty much kept you minutes from the Ritz, but honestly you can cab it easily anywhere in Montreal for a decent price.
Breakfast at the Ritz is mighty fine - and I have never had better service anywhere in town.
