Montreal Grand Prix

My wife and I are coming up to Montreal for the Grand Prix weekend and staying at the Hyatt. It is my first visit and would love any "can't miss" suggestions-especially if they are within walking distance of the hotel or via metro. We will have a car but prefer to leave it parked for the weekend and just watch others drive.

    OT: you can always take the bike (bixi) so no need to drive around and find parking or take the metro especially when hot outside

      OT: don't EVER leave anything in your car!

        - F Bar.
        - Bouillon Bilk (+++)
        - Pullman (wine bar)

        Taking the bus (80, 129) you can go up Parc Avenue towards Rue Laurier; arouch which there are numérous good restaurants
        - Lemeac (+++), Lévesque (french brasserie)
        - Mikado , Jun-I (+++), Ryu (sushi)
