Best lunch specials?

Any cuisine

Any price range

Casual or Formal

Everything goes - just one requirement - the place must have a deal for lunch !

Or, it could be a restaurant that is known for their lunch more than supper I suppose.

List your favourites only - I am aware that a lot of places have a lunch deal - but I want the best!

  1. La Chronique @ 25-ish$ ?


    1. The best deal I've found is at Milos. I don't recall the price but its at most a third the price of that same meal at dinner.

        Milos is indeed a great deal! The price is 20,10 $ and a penny is added to that price every new year.

      2. Mon Shing on de la Gauchetiere in Chinatown has great lunch specials ranging from 5-8 dollars for a main dish, soup and spring roll. A lot of the other restos in the area have similar deals as far as I know

        1. Thanks for the recs so far....

          Have to admit, thought there'd be more though

          1. Had a great lunch at Justine Bistro à Vin this week, always $11.95 for a lovely table d'hote.

              I just looked this up and this just sounds too good to be true...will you tell us more?

                No, no, it's not too good to be true. It's just that it is impossible to resist getting $30+ worth of wine to go with your excellent French meal, so we usually do that. The menu on Thursday was a cream of turnip soup, a haché parmentier made with blood sausage that everyone declared the best blood sausage they've had, and a cream puff for dessert. I didn't have the special but had tian of eggplant and goat cheese which was very nice, and a nicois salad with a tataki of blue marlin that was very well prepared. That wasn't much more than the $11.95 special either, frankly.
