Give Me Something Different/Unique...Please!
Will be in Montreal in the middle of August. I live in Toronto and I have been to Montreal many times. I am just looking for something unique and different. I hate to say this but food is secondary (still want it to be good but does not have to be great). Looking for a nice patio or beautiful room. Any food type works.
I look forward to your suggestions.
Thank you in advance.

Edit: have you been to Café Santropol? (St. Urbain/Duluth) They have a gorgeous back garden patio complete with pond and wandering neighbourhood cats, and the food qualifies as "good but not great" IMO. :-)
Here are a couple of restaurants that are offering something different:
- Kitchen Galerie http://www.kitchengalerie.com/ for a dinner party feel. There are no waiters and therefore you get to interact directly with the chefs. Very cozy and yummy. One of my faves.
- O Noir http://www.onoir.com/ where you get to eat in complete darkness. I just noticed that it also opened up in Toronto though.
- Robin des Bois www.robindesbois.ca which is a not-for-profit resto, profits go to charity.
- Le Duel http://www.restaurantduel.com/ which offers a "Iron Chef" type of experience
And of course any BYOB will be "different" from anything you can get in Toronto.
