coming to visit from nyc
i posted this on the nyc board but wanted a local's p.o.v. on restaurant suggestions for 3 unpretentious foodie gals (so, doesn't need to be the hot, expensive place, but must have great food and must be a cool spot w/a welcoming vibe) and a mature 9 y.o. (so not a family restaurant). not sure where we're staying yet but hope to be central. thank you so much in advance.
you should check this thread: "must" place to eat in Quebec city
and a report from another visitor:
My favorite is probably Toast (old-port)
and I think Café du monde would be a great place to go too for more simple (than toast) yet excellent food
sorry:( i'll post back when we book a hotel. i believe we'll be staying in/near old quebec and would certainly travel a bit for a great place but i just don't know the city well enough to know what is considered ridiculously far in your city. as for price range, moderate is fine but again, i know what that means in ny... ideally, a place where locals go rather than something too touristy. not a 'destination' place in the traditional sense of the word.
