Coming up for Saturday's game

Hey all, I'm a Rangers fan coming up to Montreal for Saturday afternoon's game. Really excited to be coming to your city for the first time. Coming up with three buddies of mine. I read the visitors guide which had a lot of helpful tips, which I wanted to thank all who produced it for.

My question is basically for any extra tips on what to do in Montreal? We'll be there from Friday night to Sunday afternoon. Just looking to get some extra opinions. Looking for good food, tourist sites, maybe some fun on Saturday night around town. I'd appreciate it if the mods left the thread without merging it at least for a little while so some people see it.

Thanks a lot guys, looking forward to being in your beautiful city, I've heard great things.

Crescent st.

La station des sports. For me, great restaurant because it has good prices on food.

And thanks Analyzer, will definitely check it out. I shouldn't have a problem with any language barrier because most/all places are bilingual, correct?

For Saturday night, just walk on St-Laurent or Crescent street, you'll have too many choices.

I like to go to les 3 Brasseurs before a game. It's like a 10 minutes walk away from the Bell Center at max.

Go to Mclean's on Peel, the food is good and you'll be served quite fast if you need to go to the game. I usually go there to eat and tank a few beers before going to the bell

If you're not going to the game you could still stay there, the ambiance is amazing.

Half half. Not everyone speaks english but downtown you'll likely find someone who does fairly easily.

their Sausage + Sauerkraut is great, however. You take that with a beer, there is nothing out of place.

As for a good restaurant: Steerburger, on St-Cath between Stanley and Drummond. So close to the Bell Center, and awesome burgers that you can eat medium-rare with no risk of bacteria.

I've never been to, but that sausage with sauerkraut might just intrigue me to check it out.

Don't drink beer though.

They have good alternative drinks. You like mead? or cider?

As long as there's no alcohol in the drink, I will drink it.

EDIT: Unless the drink is Yogurt Soda. Yes, it exists and yes, it is absolutely horrible.

Oh, a non-alcohol fella, aren't ya?

Hmm.. then no. I just wrote you good apple- and honey-based alcohol drinks.

But the Saussage + Sauerkraut is usually what I eat when I go to this restaurant. It's very satisfying.

If you like your classic Lebanese fast-food, I suggest also Chez Boustan at the corners of Crescent and Maisonneuve. Awesomely good.

Depends who you ask I guess. For me places like 3 Brasseurs and Crescent street in general are tourist traps that I avoid like the plague. There are so many much better micro breweries in town (Dieu du ciel, Cheval Blanc etc) But hey, it's all a matter of personal taste. Personally I can't stand Crescent street.

While I agree in part with you, I doubt it's a good idea to send him to the best restaurants in cryptic streets while it's his first time in Montreal, trying to attend a hockey game.

The road system might be confusing to non-initiates.

Well, with google maps and the like nowadays you'd have to be pretty easily confused not to find anything in Montreal. (although he is an american - I kid I kid).

Laurier and St-Laurent and Ontario and Berry isn't really cryptic either. I know if I visit another city I always try and find the off the map places locals like to go and avoid touristy areas. I find you get a much better feel of the city that way (not to mention much better beer, food and more reasonable prices). Depends on what floats your boat though.

I'm just curious cause I love Lebanese food and btw the Lebanese places on the west island suck compared to downtown. I've had a couple mom and pops type places before that were amazing but never remembered the name. There's even this Lebanese pizza place I went to that was phenomenal, don't remember where but it was in some hole in the wall basement of a building.

Anyways on to the point, just wondering if people around here who are diehard Lebanese food fiends have any suggestions cause a friend is coming to town in April and he loves Lebanese food

Agreed and honestly if you're on foot or public transit it's an easy city to navigate around. Driving can be a serious pain in the ass cause of stupid drivers, weather this time of year and even in the summer construction

But honestly if you're a good drive you won't have a problem. I think the OP is from NYC, if he can find his way driving around NYC with the moronic cab drivers he certainly can find his way around Montreal a much less vast city.

PS: I like the OP's avatar a lot it's jokes.
