Where to eat before Canadians Game?
We're heading to Montreal for the Canadians game on Sat 2/20. Is there a good place to eat nearby Bell Center?
Depends what you want.
Pub: ye olde orchard on mountain and rene levesque
French: I hated it but many people seem to like it- La coupole , same corner but on rene levesque ... might be bit too fancy for a hockey night but they have a special table d hote on those nights for 35 dollars (Decca 77 is also the same price on stanley and rene levesque, very good)
Italian: Marinara on Stanley near rene levesque- good value
I'd suggest Decca77 right next to Bell Center. By the way, Canadians are people from Canada, Canadiens is the hockey team ;).
You might want to check the date on your tickets! The Canadians are not playing on Feb 20 - there are no NHL games - they are on a break for the Winter Olympics
I'll second the depends what you want. If your looking for a good meal, I agree Decca77 is probably the safest/closest bet combination, altough it's not a beer and burger place.
Arlequino, on Drummond above René-Lévesque, has italian style pizza. Otherwise, you start going higher up into downtown, and then sky is the limit, as the options increase Exponentially. I like the pub food at Brutopia, and the beer is very good if you want to stick with the hockey theme.
