Suggestions for dinner?

My friends and I are going on a trip to Montreal from Boston the first weekend of November. I have not been to Montreal in years, and I did not get to eat anywhere particularly exciting when I was there. I was wondering if a Hound could recommend some restaurants for us to check out while there?

We're in our twenties, so nothing too stiff or stuffy, but we're also rather food-and-wine savvy. Cost is not so much of an issue, but we prefer quality over quantity, of course, and something that is Montreal-centric.

Any recommendations you have for me will be most welcome!!

      Ah, I have heard of this one. I'm checking out the website now.

      Also, we are staying on the Rue St. Denis ... I know it's a very very long road, but we can always get a taxi if something is far. However, it might be nice to dine in the general area on Saturday night.

        APDC is off St-Denis on Duluth, so pretty close to the action. Reservation a few weeks in advance is a must for a weekend dinner. As for price, very fair and you do get the best of both worlds, quality in quantity.

          If you do go to PDC, check the various threads on it on this site - lots of useful info on what to order, and to be careful about ordering too much as the portions are large. Here's one for example:

        My wife and I also are heading to Montreal. Made reservations for APDC for Saturday, but we have to change them, and the earliest we can get on Friday is 9:30.

        So, any other suggestions? Thanks.

          Thanks, all.

          Also, a maitre d' at work recommended Restaurant Laloux. Any thoughts?

            You shouldn't be disappointed if you decide to check out Laloux.
