Dining for 1 in Montreal?
I'll be in Montreal this weekend and dining by myself. I'd appreciate recommendations for a quality place where I'd be comfortable on Saturday night. Any good bistros where I wouldn't feel conspicuous taking up a table?
Also, any suggestions for Sunday breakfast/brunch in Old Montreal?
You could go somewhere where you could eat at the bar like Leméac, L'Express, Au Pied de Cochon, La Fabrique and many more.
I love eating alone at a bar and in a big city people rarely stare at you because we are used to it. A couple of places where I loved having dinner by myself are:
Continental (french bistro), Misto (nice Italian with a twist), Les 3 p'tits bouchons (excellent food with very nice biological wine by the glass), M sur Masson (the food is excellent but there are only 3 places at the bar so you have to make a reservation), Chez Roger (a carnivore's delight, one of the best steak tartares I have eaten).
Those are some of the places I am thinking of at the top of my head where you won't feel out of place.
