Lunch near McGill - midweek?
I'm taking my thesis supervisor out to lunch on graduation day (along with 3 other family members). Since we're having a big celebration dinner that day, I'm looking for a restaurant that:
- has lighter food options
- is near McGill
- European or North American cuisine (parents' tastes!)
- won't break the bank
- has a nice ambience for celebration
Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
I'd opt for Arlequino. They do not have a website yet (or I just can't find it), but here is a review from the internet: http://www.martiniboys.com/Montreal/A...
It's a pretty place, elegant, not too pricey and very good pizzas (not heavy). The nutella pizza is a must for dessert. It is a bit noisy at lunch time, but that is good when celebrating, right?! Reservations are a must.
Brasserie Brunoise: The daily special runs $14 until 17:00. Tends to be fairly hearty, though there are some lighter (and still pretty affordable) à la carte options.
La Montée: First and main in the $18-$22 range, desserts $3. They'll send you a typical lunch menu if you ask.
Ferreira: I believe has a lunch special, though there's no mention of it on their website.
