Top mid priced restaurants in montreal
Hey everyone, I've been searching on chowhound for a great place to eat out this weekend however I mostly find recommendations for higher end restaurants like joe beef etc, I'm looking for a mid priced to higher end around 20-30$ for a main dish i was looking at the place that has replaced dna; l'atelier d'argentine, or brasserie T but if anyone has some suggestions please let me know!!
I think a lot of the top Montreal restaurants hover around this price category:
400 Coups: $25-$30 mains
Lawrence: $25-$32 mains (today's menu)
Cinquieme Peche: $22-31
Lemeac: $22+ (though admittedly some range into the $40s)
Trois Petits Bouchons: $16.50-29
Dominion Square Taverne: $15-29
Osteria Venti: $21-26 (though here you'd probably be inclined to order a starter, primi, and secondi dishes)
le Filet: (they only have small sharing plates, but last time there 3 of us split 7 items= about $38 each+tax)
L'Express: $15-$27 mains
Even at places like Pied de Cochon the vast majority of mains come in under $30, as long as one avoids the temptation of the foie gras-laden dishes, like the "duo" at $51 a plate.
You could also reduce costs by going to bring your own wines:
Smoking Vallee: $20-30 mains
P'Tit Plateau: around $25 mains
I don't know of anyone who has visited L'Atelier d'Argentine. Brasserie T could also be a reasonable option. If price is really an issue, you could consider one of the late night deals at Lemeac ($25 fixed 3-course menu after 10), Milos ($20.12 after 10), Cocagne, etc etc.
