Narrowing down dinner options...

Hi - Headed to Montreal in early September for a weekend with the girls (four of us, in our mid-20s). I have been to Montreal twice; the other girls haven't. One of us is a vegetarian/pescetarian, which is why APdC isn't on the list below...

On previous trips I loved Club Chasse et Peche and the sadly defunct Brunoise. The girls are looking for a variety of food experiences in a variety of neighborhoods... so if you had to pick three of the following restaurants for dinner, which ones would you choose?

- Club Chasse et Peche
- DNA
- Bistro Bienville
- Montee du Lait
- Kitchen Galerie
- Garde Manger

Or are there other places you would choose that aren't on my list? I love French food, but am trying to throw in a little (a very little!) variety for my friends' sake. I also took off Joe Beef/Liverpool House because I wasn't sure how veg-friendly they were.

Also, thinking of doing one nice lunch on a Friday. Laloux? Au Cinquieme Peche? Other options?

And finally. Any good bakeries near Berri-UQAM metro? I need to go to a patisserie (or four) while we're there... thinking of just going to Kouign Amann, but is there anything closer to where we're staying?

Thanks!
D.

    Haven't been in quite a while but La Brioche Lyonnaise used to be reliable. Not sure they do takeout, however. www.labriochelyonnaise.com

    Not too long ago, a hound had good things to say about Pâtisserie St-Louis-de-France, located near the east entrance to the Sherbrooke metro station on Berri, three or so long blocks and a hillside up from the Berri-UQAM metro. Haven't been there in decades...

      Montee du Lait is now La Montee, and has relocated to Bishop. It's fairly veg/pesc friendly. Joe Beef usually has some form of pasta or veg options - Liverpool House IIRC had a lot of meat-based sauces. However, I would agree with Bigfellow, and head to Mas Cuisine.
      You could do La Montee for lunch - it's a great lunch deal, and should fit the bill nicely.

        If you liked Brunoise, try Mas Cuisine. The chef/owner of Brunoise has this new place that is fantastic. It is small so call for reservations.
