Wednesday evening dinner near Laurier/Mont-Royal Metro ...


Yeah, I should know better, I'm used to hand out suggestions, but now, I need "help"

I'm looking for a nice little restaurant where I can have a nice discussion with my friend.

So, not a restaurant with a quick turn-over or where they will pressure us to leave; something simple, yet tasty; key words are Simple & Tasty; since we will mostly talk and my friend is not, as far as a know too adventurous.

Area : Mont-Royal Metro (St-Denis st.) or Laurier Metro (ok to take the bus).
Price: not that important, but must be reasonable.
Style: french-ish (italian-ish, ...) but not asian and/or spicy food.
Wine: yes for me at least, will probably order by the glass, but an "apportez votre vin" is ok if food is worthwhile.

Something like "Monsieur B", "3 petits bouchons", Justine, Lemeac,... 5eme peché (?)

We can and are allowed to walk if necessary...

  1. If you are looking for not too expensive, there is Romeo on Mont-Royal. Before 7 o'clock, you have a Montepulciano (Jano) for 4$. The food is good, but not outstanding. I often have their cesar salad with a pizza.

    It is not in the same league as 3 petits bouchons...

    Depending on what hour you have dinner, Misto is not too noisy earlier in the evening. Their pastas are excellent and they have a nice selection of wines by the glass. They never hurry you either. Right next door is Stromboli, which is in the same vein.

    1. Cocagne and Cuisine & Dépendence should also be on your list.

      1. There is that little bistro right next to Fous Desserts, I can't remember the name...

          La Gaudriole? Have you been lately? Doesn't seem to get as much love as it used to.

          There's also Bistro Bienville.

            La Gaudriole changed owners at the end of 2009. It was one of our favourite restaurants - we miss them. It did reopen with a new name - Aoili? - and reworked menu.

        2. La Cantine. 212 Mont Royal. have the wild boar pogos and the "RIBZ"!

          1. La Raclette, BYOB, cute terasse.
