Sunday lunch/brunch in Montreal?
I will be in Montreal from 11am-2:30pm this sunday. Was looking for a good French place for lunch/brunch. I am not a fan of typical breakfast/brunch foods including pastries/breads/egg dishes and would prefer standard lunch fare (but on Sunday). Any suggestions would be appreciated.
You could try reserving at Chien Fumant (they do a noon seating). Definitely not standard brunch fare. Lawrence would be another good option but I think its closed for the next few weeks. I'd also recommend Reservoir - their menu at brunch is basically what they'll serve at dinner time, so it isn't bread/egg focused. They do a lot of fish/seafood and also unusual meats (blood sausage, duck innards of all sorts, etc). Maybe if you want it to be authentic French you could try L'Express or Lemeac, though I think these might lean more towards French brunches (which typically focus on pastries and eggs).
