Marriage proposal recommendations
I will be in Montreal Sept 9 - 12 and I plan on proposing to my girlfriend. I am considering a restaurant and figured this would be the place to get some great suggestions. I will be staying in old Montreal and would love a fine dining romantic restaurant.
If you could recommend a restaurant and best day of the week. I can do it on a Thursday or Friday. I am sure the restaurants get busier as the weekend approaches. If you know of any additional accommodations a restaurant can make please be sure to mention them. i.e. more private room, package, music etc..
We are open to various types of food.
Perhaps a postprandial popping of the question while being whisked through the old town in a horse-drawn caleche. For this I would propose (!) a flask of cognac and a couple of snifters or, if you can find a way to hide them, a split of champagne and flutes.
I confess I was going to do exactly this myself some 13 years ago, but found myself unable to find a caleche after dinner - I have no idea how we found ourselves on the only caleche-free summer evening in the history of Old Montreal...
I had to improvise with a proposal on the waterfront. Fortunately the answer to the question was the one I had hoped for. All’s well that ends well.
re: erich wiess
erich, I also fear I will not be able to get a caleche at the perfect time. I am considering reserving one prior for an increased fee. If anyone has any suggestions that would be great. I think I am going to dine at Club Chasse et Peche.
Hows the chefs table at DNA and europea? Can either be romantic?
How about a nice romantic restaurant for lunch? I would like to make the entire day as romantic as possible.
Hehe look who's come from TA's board. Good for you, this is a great site i'm sure the others will have loads of great suggestions =D
+1 for Club Chasse et Pêche. It's one of the best restaurants in Montreal. Reservations are a MUST.
DNA might be great too, the decor is beautiful and modern and the service is excellent. Go early if you want it to be quieter. Here, found a detailed review from some time back:
