FIRST VISIT TO MONTREAL IN YEARS - RECOMMENDATIONS SOLICITED
Hello Everyone, my GF and I are spending three nights in Montreal this weekend. We are staying at Auberge Bonaparte near Old Montreal. It has been many years since I have been to Montreal and none of my past visits were food-focused, so to speak. So, I am asking for your help.
I am from Toronto. Italian restaurants abound. So it would be nice to find something uniquely Montreal. A place with atmosphere. My hotel does serve breakfast but that does not preclude brunch/lunch. And of course, dinner. While I would not like a place that will break the bank, if it is worth it, then I will go.
I do have a car which I would prefer not to use. Metro, cab, or walking is not a problem.
So please, if you are going out for a special, unique, Montreal dinner, where would you go?
