OT: Things to do while in Montreal

I posted before about an upcoming vacation I'll be taking, but it was before the great board wipeout.

I remember some of the posts, some I do not.

I'll be in Montreal, with the wife, January 10-14. Staying at the Ritz (1st time, looking forward to it).

Looking for some suggestions on restaurants etc.

I've been to Montreal before, the wife has not.

The Casino is already on the list, unfortunately for me I don't think the wife will be up for spending a night at Chez Paree


Any other suggestions would be helpful.

Thanks ahead of time.

John, who better to ask than an italian Flyer Fan living in Montreal. I can tell you everything you need to know about eating good here. First and foremost, most of the best restaurants are on St. Lawrence Blvd. Either one of these are good for italian cusine (Mediterraneo, Buona Notte, Quelli Della Notte) Of course it all depends on what your fancy is. If you like meat, go to Qeue De Chevale on Rene Levesque blvd, i must warn you though, it is quite expensive.

PM me if you want, i'll give you the scoop, i guess you'll be here when the Flyers visit on the 8th?

The restaurant '' La-Queue-De-Cheval'' is one of the best in montreal. This steakhouse has a great reputation.

You have GOT to be kidding me. The best place for ribs in Montreal is without a doubt, Baton Rouge.

bar-b-barn... bleh.. i hate fighting against the bones for the meat.

When have you ever been able to eat baby back ribs with only a fork?

At Baton Rouge, you can :yum:

Get ready to have a 1000$ bill though! Buona Notte is good, and you may even catch some Habs or whoever is in town there!

You can't go to Montreal and not eat French, particularly if you want to impress your wife. Actually the Casino has nice French restaurants, but you might also consider Toqué if money is no object (people fly in to Montreal just to eat there). As a graduate student living there a while back, money was an object, so I went to bring-your-own-wine French places, such as Yoyo, La Colombe and Les Héritiers (they have no wine list: you stop by a wine shop, or SAQ, and pick up a bottle or two one the way...). If your taste is more exotic, consider Chao Phraya (Thai), L'Etoile des Indes (Indian), and Chrysanthème (Szechuan).

If you like classical music, the MSO is world-renowned, although downgraded since losing its equally famous conductor, Charles Dutoit, about a year ago. You might consider a jazz bar like Biddle's, or bars specializing in whiskey (Whiskey Cafe, l'Ile Noire), port (le Sofa) or martinis (Jello Bar), all of them with a pretty nice ambience (my pick, especially on a date, is Whiskey Cafe: it's Art Deco inside, and lit almost exclusively with candles...). Edit: Two more things... 1. If you want to take her dancing (I'm assuming you're not into latin dancing...), there is a nightclub/bar at the top of Place Ville Marie, called 737, with a great view of the city. 2. If you go to the French restaurants I mentioned, particularly Toque, you should reserve ahead of time. You can look them up with the Canada 411 webpage, using a search restricted to Montreal, Quebec.

Have a good trip.
