a nice place to eat, not too upscale, for thanksgiving dinner (canadian)
i've searched a couple of the thanksgiving dinner threads on this, but not too much details on the places that are referred in them.
my sister is coming over for thanksgiving weekend, and i was wondering if any of you knew a nice place to eat for thanksgiving dinner. we're both students, so we cant afford to spend too much (preferrably around the $50-$60 price range for two people). what can you recommend? are there any restaurants that have specific thanksgiving dinner deals? bistro style preferred. i live around mcgill, and the closer the better, but we are willing to go to restaurants that are reachable by metro. i'd love any suggestion, as this is my first thanksgiving in montreal!
A group of us had dinner in early April at Resident Restaurant located at 400 Notre Dame East and one of their specialties was called a mini Thanksgiving dinner. Not so mini as it consisted of a whole stuffed Cornish Hen served with herbed smashed potatoes and a Yorkshire pudding. Not only a huge serving, but delicious as well. Not quite turkey but still fowl. Check with them if it's still on the menu. Very accessible by Metro, and the space is the epitome of "cool".
You might like Mazurka's on Prince Arthur. They do eastern European food and they have cheap and hearty dinner specials and I think (though not sure) that they might do a turkey thing on Thanksgiving. Unlike other Prince Arthur spots, they don't BYOB. But they're so affordable, a little vino won't set you back much.
