Are you making a specialty food? Get great advice

Montreal Canadian hockey fans need a resto near Union Station for dinner Sat nite where we can watch the hockey game.

We are spoiled by the great restos we have in Mtl so quality of food is important and we will have 1 vegetarian with us. Unfortunately we don't want to miss the playoffs so need somewhere where they are likely to show the Montreal/Pittsburgh game. Any suggestions?

    Unless someone corrects me if you want to watch the game you are pretty much stuck with pubs and sports bar. The food will be not as good as Montreal for sure but here are some choices:
    Irish Embassy
    Harbour Sports Grille
    Jack Astors
    Personally I like Irish Embassy for the ambiance and reasonable pub fare. Perhaps other members can fill in.

    Harbour Sports Grille
    10 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5E, CA

    Irish Embassy
    49 Yonge St, Toronto, ON M5E, CA

    Jack Astor's
    1090 Don Mills Rd, Toronto, ON M3C3R6, CA

      You want a bar like atmosphere, or something more subdued?

        The Loose Moose has a decent menu and huge screens all over the joint. It's pretty much across the street from Union Station.

          i think beer bistro has at least 1 TV - perhaps you can call and reserve the choice seating (if any)? There are many incredible places to eat this city, but none that i can really think of cater to sports . As an aside, i do not think that there has ever been a leaf playoff game in HD.

            Bottom Line is right across the street from Union Station. As good a place as any to watch the game.

              If the game is most important to you, any sports bar downtown that wants to keep customers will have CBC Hockey Night in Canada on their TV's on Saturday night. You'll get your Habs game, that is the least of your worries.. But looking for "quality" in that area (a tourist zone) might be a problem.
