30th Birthday in Montreal

I need you "chowies" to help me choose a resto in Montreal to celebrate my 30th birthday. I tried le Local but its fully booked for Jan 22nd.

I'm looking for great food and atmosphere. Something to remind me that I was "young" at some point. Just looking for good food and a good vibe. Preferably the Old Montreal.

Thanks in advance.

    1. What about Chuck Hughes's Garde Manger or Barroco (on St-Paul, right next door)? Both offer this "young" vibe you are looking for; on the other hand, both are on the expensive side (but this didn't seem like an issue by reading your post).

        I looked into Garde Manger, but its closed till the 10th and I need another plan since it seems hard to get a reso there.

      2. I'll second DNA's reccomendation, it fits all your criterias.

          You're about 2 weeks older than me!! Remember, age is just a number.

          From what I've been told, DNA is the way to go. But you and your friends can't be afraid to try new things.

        2. There's always Le Hangar, a bit off Old Montreal (Wellington Street on the other side of Bonaventure) same owners as Le Local
