Friends coming to montreal, taking them out for a dinner
Taking a few friends who are visiting from Waterloo for dinner.
We're all univeristy students, so i'm looking for something good, yet affordable...probably no APdC or Joe Beef etc for us.
Anyone have any good ideas for a dinner out, maybe even near the mcgill campus?
Wasn't there a recent thread about how the alma mater is a wasteland?
if the proposed budget excludes booze, Pinxto, BU and Le Comptoir might suit your budget though the latter is a bit further north. Depending on how much you eat, it will likely be around $40/pp after taxes and tip. If it includes booze, suggest looking for a BYO option.
There's also the Asian options near Concordia.
Eat like kings, drink like barons, pay like paupers.
Howsabout Polish Mazurka on Prince-Arthur - hearty reasonable fare, not BYOB, but affordable wine.
Maybe Portuguese Portugalia on Rachel - good chicken, ribs. Or La Cabane Portugal across from Schwartz - standby Portuguese like bifana, grilled steaks, terrific marinated octopus, plus eclectic items on the whiteboard (wild boar/wapiti/rabbit etc) and reasonable drinks & full bar.
