A tourist comes to Montreal..... Scenario

So a tourist that never heard of montreal before comes here for food purposes. He tells you he could eat one meal in montreal and then he has to go. Where would you take him?
Bonus points for atmosphere, creativity, originality, and food choice.
No price limitations by the way!

    1. Ask someone to cook for you!

      1. We need someone to report on the chef's table at Européa, so take him there. $250 per person, allocate 4-5 hours.

        I have not tried it, but always enjoy Européa.

        1. Where does this tourist come from ?

          Europea is nice, but it's the kind of "international" restaurant that can be found in any major city.

          -La Salle à Manger.
          -3 Petits Bouchons.
          - Toqué ( depends good or bad, me think it could represent a great selection of local produces)
          - 5ème peché.
          - Joe Beef
          - DNA
          - ...

              I think as amazing as it is you could find it in another city

            2. re: Maximilien

              Out of the restaurants you have suggested, besides Toqué, Maximilien, which would be the quietest restaurant on a Saturday night at 7 pm, with the least background noise?

              I'd like to try some of these restaurants, but I need to find one where conversation won't be challenging.

            3. Do let us know where you end up taking him, and how it turned out.

                I think this is a "thought experiment" not an actual scenario, but I could be wrong.
