Quebec City-Moderately priced places for solo traveller
I'm going to be in QC for 2 1/2 days, and apart from gathering some general suggestion from other threads on affordable places in QC, I have a few specific questions:
I'm planning to eat like they do in Spain: a big lunch, and a late dinner with something lighter. I haven't found much discussion (yet) of good places with prix fixe menus: what are some good moderately priced options for lunch with prix fixe?
Also, for dinners, I would prefer a bistro or other place with bar seating (where I can get appetizers or sandwiches or something light). Any good recommendations? Do you just walk into a place and ask to sit at the bar?
If that solo traveler would like a cold salad meal in summertime I recommend Le Commensal (there are several branches, see online or phone directory). Le Commensal is actually a vegetarian restaurant but the way it is set up there is a hot buffet and a cold buffet, you take what you want and they weigh your plate, price is modest. Even if you not a vegetarian (as I am not) the cold buffet is actually an elaborate salad bar with many many many selections to make a plate of salads that is a meal. Le Commensal has a website.
Addendum to my previous post: I just looked and I see that Le Commensal has several websites. Google "le commensal montreal" and then go to the French website headed "Pret a Bien Manger" to see a picture of the salad bar.
