Superb food near Union Station?

Hi,
I will be doing a foodie trip from Montreal during the Easter long weekend and will be staying near the Union train station. Could anybody recommend me some "must-try" restaurants near that area? Walkable distance would be great. No budget limit, nor cuisine preference. Thanks!!

  1. Canoe (closed weekends) would top my list.

    1. I'm not sure that there are any must-try restaurants within walking distance of Union... if you're willing to cab, here are some restos I'd suggest:

      - The Black Hoof (no res, cash only)
      - Campagnolo (sit at the chef's bar)
      - Enoteca Sociale (half-priced enomatic wines if you can go on Mon/Tues)
      - Parts And Labour (had a lovely sweetbreads+papardelle last night. Also, the duck egg app was very good)
      - Buca (go for light snacks and stick with the apps)
      - Splendido for big-budget fine-dining

      George is good for fine-dining and has a lot of good buzz lately, but I haven't been in many years.

      ... I feel like I'm missing some stuff. Will ponder.

          1. re: Wil

            Just found out my vegetarian friend will be joining us! Any veg-friendly places??

              I really enjoy Ki (Japanese). Not sure what it is like on the weekends. They have the most amazing vegetarian side dishes - great vegetarian sushi as well.

          2. Biff's does credible French. Nota Bene is a not-too-far trip up Simcoe from Front. I have had some good experiences at Epic in the Royal York hotel.
