Looking for bistro style restaurants that seat less than 30 people in Montreal
My brother-in-law owns a small restaurant in Saskatchewan and has come to Montreal on a "research" trip to look for inspiration for his place. He has a small, up-scale business and would love to see what others are doing here with their small restaurants.
Could you recommend small, bistro-style restaurants that seat less than 30 people? We have a car so are able to get around the greater Montreal area. Would love to keep the price below 40$ per main course.
Sorry if this has come up before. I didn't find it in my search, as the search criteria is too broad.
So many restaurants! Here are some that are bistro-ish (though some might not feel the same way about this classification):
Joe Beef (though it is currently expanding) and next-door Liverpool House
Cinquieme Peche would have been perfect but they are relocating
Monsieur B or Les Infideles or Les Heritiers (all the same restaurant consortium)
Prunelle (though food is hit-and-miss and it might be slightly over 30 seats, I like the atmosphere enough to recommend it)
Cocagne (the opposite of above: food is great but the space is not)
And so many others!! Maybe find pictures online to figure out which might be most inspiring. I'd suggest Chien Fumant..

Grenadine is the smallest I can think of. Lesley Chesterman reviewed it last week : http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/F...
I've never been, but Le Chien Fumant seems pretty small.
Maybe Le Jurançon too.
