Help! Last minute dinner plans in Montreal for large group
Thirteen of us for a Thursday night dinner. Nothing too fancy but willing to pay for well-prepared local food (quality of food trumps hoity-toity service or white table cloths) and perhaps with elements that we don't see in the San Francisco Bay Area. Tall order for last minute reservations and a large party....any ideas?
Thirteen isn't that large. You should be able to get in with a reservation wherever you want to go. It's been a little over a year since I've been but my very favourite restaurant in Montreal is Maestro SVP on St-Laurent www.maestrosvp.com - it's seafood like you see in San Francisco but mostly east coast stuff, very good and fresh.
Le Jolifou comes to mind, plus they have a seperate room that can accomodate groups. Decca 77 could also be a very good option as it's downtown, the food is really good and prices are quite fair if you go the prix fixe route.
