"Guys" dinner St.Laurent/Sherbooke
Need a recommendation for some friends coming to town for a guys weekend-staying near Sherbrooke and St.Laurent.
There are lots of fine dining in the area which I would recommend for couples-but drawing a blank trying to find something interesting for a group of guys who appreciate good food-but don't necessarily want fine dining
Gastro-pub, wine bar?
nothing really in that "corner" that could be called a gastro-pub or a wine bar; no real "fine-dining" either (except for "La Porte" on st-laurent); there are a few "people-watching" restaurants on the strip on st-laurent between sherbrooke and pine st. (globe, med, buena notte, ...)
The closer wine-bar would be Pullman.
You could try Pinxto (roy st.)
The Burgundy Lion is a fine friendly neighbourhood place, but I really wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. The food is very uneven. I don't think it's at the level of what a gastropub is supposed to be.
And, It's not like this city is lacking in places with eight dollar pints and so-so food.
I was recently at steak frites on Laurier and there was a bachelor party of 30 guys there... plus another table of 10 guys for a birthday. I feel as though its a popular choice amongst guys.
