last-minute Saturday night reservations

edub May 23, 2011 07:09 AM

Hello fellow Hounds,

I'm going to be in Montreal this Saturday night, and unexpectedly will have a babysitter, which is a wonderful change from our plans to eat peanut butter sandwiches with our toddler. Of course, I haven't made reservations so I know my chances with L'express or Garde-Manger are slim. Any recommendations for a low-key, easy-to-get Saturday night reservation somewhere near our hotel -- between Peel and McGill stations? I'd love some bistro-type food but we really aren't picky, especially on short notice.

    Ferreira on Peel... although it is French, not bistro

      I believe Ferreira is Portuguese: http://www.ferreiracafe.com/

      edub - you may still be able to get reservations at L'Express - you can always try.

        It is indeed....good catch; better than its place-page on google I happened to be looking at...

        Dominion Tavern is another option in the immediate area.
