Any recommendations for Steak, Poutine, Italian or any other specialities in Montreal? I’ll only be in town for the weekend in Nov.
Thanks for your help in advance!
(I assume from your post history that you are from out west in Edmonton)
I leave googling for addresses and more information to the readers.
Montreal is not a steak-house kind of place; but you can find good steak-frite (with either bavette or onglet cuts) at Lemeac, or L'Express.
Poutine, opinions diverge on where is the better/best one, I always suggest "La Banquise" between 11pm and 5am because poutine is best experienced after a good drinking session!!! but you can go there for lunch as well, it will be the same!!
There's also "Patati Patata" which is really popular ans small hole-in-the-wall place.
Italian; the only italian I went in the last 10 years (maybe 20 years) in Montreal, was 1 year ago at Graziella in Old Montreal, it was really nice; "Nora Gray" opened a couple of weeks ago and is supposed to be quite good, but also quite noisy.
Other specialities :
i would go for north-african/middle eastern type of cuisine :
Alep/Petit Alep, Damas, Rumi, Lallouz
Or french/québecois type of cuisine
