  1. Nothing on Crescent that's for sure. Europea is only a street east if it's ok with your budget. Ferreira Café and Taverne Square Dominion could work too.

    1. How about Deville Dinerbar? it's on 1425 Stanley. I took a colleague from out of town and she loved it. There is a lot to choose from- healthy choices, burgers, etc.

        Personally, I love Deville Dinerbar for what it is (diner+ food). I am always pleasantly surprised with the quality of the food and particularly the weekly ethnic "bento" lunches. That said, it is not the kind of place to which I would invite clients, whether from our of town or locally, nor does it represent IMHO the Montreal food scene.

        I would think Ferreira Café on Peel, only 3 blocks or so east of Crescent, would be more appropriate - high-end Portuguese seafood and meats, excellent private wine list, nice power business-type decor, although somewhat expensive. There's also Europea (contemporary French) on Mountain Street and Sho-Dan (quite good, if not entirely traditional sushi) on Metcalfe.

        Restaurant Europea
        1227 Mountain Street, Montreal, QC H3G 1Z2
        Tel. (514) 398-9229

        Ferreira Café
        1446 Peel Street
        Tel. (514) 848-0988

        2020 Metcalfe
        Montréal, Québec, H3A-1X8
        Tel: (514) 987-9987

          Ferreira Café is a great option! Good for lunch or dinner.

            I have not gone at lunch but found it noisy in evening, hard to hear; someone said it is an acoustic problem. Guess it depends if you are planning to discuss business over your meal. I like this resto for food and service.

            i agree with deville. i wanted to hate it but it's pretty good.

            1. re: manaloman

              I agree with manaloman - I would never take clients to Deville Diner. The food is passable at best, and it really falls into that category of "y" food - it is all very oily, greasy, sugary, salty....

              Ferreira and Europea, if they are in your budget, would be more appropriate
