A party of 8 guys are coming to Montreal next weekend and will be staying at the Sofitel. We are looking for a decent dining experience where restaurants are a hip, nice place to be, good food and great vegetarian options (and not just nicely laid out boiled vegetables). If you can kindly provide your top fairly expensive location and the other being a well priced restaurant.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Assuming food matters more than scene, Au Cinquième Péché is a great, fairly expensive (though excellent QPR) place for vegetarians (whom they treat respectfully and imaginatively, a relative rarity in Montreal) and carnivores (who can even order seal this time of the year). If you want scene afterwards, you can always wander down to one of the glitz-strip bars.
