  1. what is your budget and what kind of food do you like?

      1. I'd actually recommend staying away from Yep and Urban spoon. They're more reliable than they used to be but in Montreal some of the top recommendations tend to be unreliable.
        At the moment I'd say Vin Papillon and Manitoba. Probably the most interesting meals at the moment.

        1. re: Fintastic

          I have heard of Vin Papillon but tell me about Maitoba - Please.

        2. I am middle of the road for budget but will spend for the extra special. I have not found a food I don't like...yet:)

          1. For asian food I'd recomment Park (Japanese/Korean fusion) and Jardin Iwaki (30$ ish 5 ish course meal, chef's choice changes every week, best creepy bathroom experience.)

            1. How about Damas on Park Ave.for first class Syrian food superb Fattouch Salads and Hummus Lhme , Kibbe, Tatar Burek dumplings and way more. I buy a half dozen starters and have a regal feast. Also try the Syrian Wine from the Bekka Valley with a micro climate similar to Bordeaux. The wine could fool many in a blind taste test.

              On the same style try SU on Bannantyne in Verdun a superb Turkish Restaurant that is big on Tapas style dishes and 4 or 5 Lamb dishes.
              Both great summer choices
