Hot spots in Montreal?

My girlfriend and I are making a trip to Montreal with a few other couples. Any suggestions on any new (or old) hip, upscale restaurants? Any help will be much appreciated!

  1. What's upscale ? What's hip ?

    Other than good food, looking for good vibe ? wine list ? dress up kind of place ? things you like or not ?

    1. re: Maximilien

      Yeah, kind of difficult to answer. If i just name all the restaurants that fill to capacity at supper time... i'd be here all day!

    2. I would suggest the "Garde-Manger" in Old Montreal. The food is great and as the night wears on the music from the DJ gets louder and more danceable. It's a fun place to check out.

      1. Garde-manger or Newtown is what you are looking for.

        1. Upscale: Vauvert, Orignal, Chasse et PĂȘche, Le Locale, Garde Manger
          Not so upscale but trendy: Macaroni, Buvette chez Simone, Pullman, BBQ, Santos, Ma grosse truie chérie

          1. thanks everyone, this helps a lot!
