ISO: Somewhere to have lunch/brunch whilst watching the Habs game on a Saturday.
I'm looking for a place to have lunch/brunch tomorrow where I could also watch the first game of the series against the Rangers. I'm trying to stay away from sports bars, but it seems that most good restaurants that show sports (Gus, Grumman, Icehouse, etc.) are only open for dinner.
I know Pastaga has a screen in the kitchen, but I think that's reserved for groups and we are only two. Whatever other place I can think of either has crap food or a crap screen.
Can you help?
Thanks in advance,
Brasserie Capri serves a mean breakfast and definitely has the TVs as does Momesso's (although the breakfast is more continental). But as I presume you wanted something a little more upscale. Along those lines, Sparrow has a TV and serves brunch, I think. And you might want to inquire at Prohibition as well.
I have watched world cup soccer at st-viateur bagel on Monkland before, so I know they have TVs. The food is not quite on par with the other places you mentioned but it may be an ok compromise.
Well, we ended up getting a reservation at Quai n°4. I was a bit apprehensive, but the food turned out to be quite good. We had the lentil and duck confit salad which comes with lardons, poached eggs and hollandaise and the fennel, mint, soft-boiled eggs and I forget the rest. Both dishes where very satisfying. Good bread was served with ok house made jams.
Service was friendly but slow. I got beer and my sister got wine, but they have an interesting looking cocktail menu and a "bottle service" mimosa special for $35. It comes with a bottle of Pares Balta cava. The list of on-tap beers kind of sucks and prices are high for the area. For me that's a deal breaker. So I won't be running back, but I'm putting it on my list decent brunch places.
