Out-of-this-world Downtown recommendations?
So while the downtown area has been my home for the past three college years, I feel (or at least hope) that I may not know everyone of it's restaurants I mostly stick between Concordia and McGill and have a pretty good coverage of that area restaurant-wise.
But I'm looking to try something new and great (I mean really GREAT) around that area- or maybe a bit further even.
My usual hang-outs for reference: McKibbins (best burgers period), Bashi, Carlos & Pepe, Premiere Moisson etc...
Keep in mind that I'm still a student (well grad student now. yay me!) so Queue de Cheval is a tad out of my group's price range.
Thanks in advance!
Not necessarily great, but good, and reasonable - Brasserie Brunoise. There was a post a few months back about restaurants in the Concordia area, which you might want to check out, although I assume you're probably familiar with many of them (Chinese, Korean, Thai, etc.) but Maison Bulgogi, Tapioca The and Bangkok in the Faubourg are pretty worthy contenders.
The bistro in the Musée des Beaux Arts is nice, but on the more expensive end. Also for fancy (where to ask your parents to take you maybe?) is Bistro Gourmet on St-Mathieu. For good and cheap, I really like Santangelo's Italian sandwiches on Guy just below Sherbrooke (the porcetta is my fav).
