2 Montreal Lunch for a single dude ... this thursday and friday.
(since I'm a regular here, I should know better, but I'm not really into "lunch")
Looking for something "downtown-ish", could be plateau, downtown, old-montreal, but not really further.
I have two day off while attending the Mutek festival and it's around my birthday and want to take up on the chance of trying a couple of restaurants for lunch.
Couple of ideas I have :
Europea (business lunch ?) ?
La Chronique (not downtown, but close to home)
Le Club Chasse et Pèche
I love chinese and indian, but I feel it's not fun eating there alone.
I probably will try the better one on thursday and find something more relaxed on friday .
Thanks for any suggestions.

It might be slightly past your geographic limits (though almost "Plateau", so I'll throw it out there), but if you haven't been to the Sparrow for lunch yet, it's well worth it.
No problem as a solo diner; there are at least four or five seats at the bar.
Either show up a few minutes before they open (noon) or towards 1:00. Otherwise you risk waiting, because like a lot of places in the area it has an intense lunch rush due to nearby Ubisoft. But it might not be so hard to get a single at the bar even in mid-rush.
You might wish to add La Porte to your list. Also I have heard raves about the lunch menu at Portus Calle.
