Montreal for Four Days: Restaurant Recommendations
Bigfellow is right on.
After my recent week-end with an out-of-towner, I will add picnic food from Jean Talon Market (raw milk cheeses & dry cured meats, fruit, wine) and then head over to the Tam Tams on Sunday @ 12:30. His favorite Montreal experience so fasr, and he har been coming every year for 20 years!
Au Pied du Cochon is not to be missed. http://www.restaurantaupieddecochon.ca/index_e.html
You also can't come to Montreal without having smoked meat. So that means a trip to Schwarstz's. http://www.schwartzsdeli.com/
La Banquise for poutine is also a must. http://www.restolabanquise.com/
