What's a good, fun place for dinner for New year's Eve? I know it's a bit early, but.....
something quite "memorable" but fun. with two teens.....

  1. I'd try to get a reservation at "Les 400 coups" second seating on NYE; or get the first seating and spend the rest of the evening walking in Old Montreal/Old Port and be outside for the fireworks...

    (that's the only thing I can think of right now)

    1. re: Maximilien

      I was thinking about that plan, and I know we'd have to book soon. I've never been in a restaurant for NYE, I guess they plan it so the last service or so is around midnight? I was wondering if we could go to the second service, but get out at something like 11:30-11:45 to go see the fireworks. I guess if we requested it, most restaurant could oblige? Because if going to the first service, it's a long time to walk around until midnight.

    2. so, anything for new year's eve?
      How's Europea doing these days?
      Anything to suggest trendoid, fun, lots of interesting people to watch/observe?
      Good food? (doesn't have to be great, but good).

      1. Au cinquieme p├ęche is doing something on NYE (5 services $70, french food) ; nice place, nice neighbourhood to walk around before and after (St-Denis st. and Mont-Royal st).

        Europea is still doing good/great food, but probably not really "trendoid" (more international style high-end cuisine).

        1. Maison Publique is also preparing a NYE menu.

          1. So is Osteria Venti, Old Montreal as well.
