recomendations for restaurant near crescent st
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.
