Dinner after Cirque - somewhat reasonable?

mak136 May 20, 2009 01:34 PM

Can anyone recommend a dinner place after the Cirque on Saturday? Last time we went, I was with a group of people that had no vision to go away from the touristy street where Place Jacques-Cartier is. I remember after we ate, we walked around the corner and there were quieter, less populated places.

Any suggestions?

    Garde-Manger and Holder are interesting choices, albeit not too quiet. And about a 10-15 minutes walk from the tents. I also like Chez l'Epicier well, it might be a quieter atmosphere. And I heard good things about Graziella, but I've never been.

      How about Resident? I haven't been, but reviews have been fairly positive. It's on Notre Dame not too far from Place Jacques Cartier, but in a quieter area.

        I have enjoyed dinner at Steak Frites St-Paul (on St-Paul street), but you need reservations. It is quite popular, and BYOW. Also not as pricey as L'Epicier or Graziella.

              Thanks everyone! Resident will likely be the choice of destination.
