restaurants in cote des neiges area and queen mary

IMO it means that the community that comes together on the various antique car nights, car washes, etc. is better than the food, which while I wouldn't classify as "generic," is not on par with Uniburger, Mr. Steer, Pataterie Chez Philippe, and other places.

restaurants in cote des neiges area and queen mary

To all of the above, I'd add Gibeau Orange Julep (more for architectural and community prowess than the actual food), Prohibition (more NDG, than Cdn - but close to enough to Queen Mary), and Boulangerie Spicee.

Recommendations for June in Montreal

I haven't been in a bunch of months. So things might have changed, but as I never knew it in its previous incarnation, I can't hold the change against it.

Overall it seemed like a nice enough, upscale neighborhood bar, with an emphasis on cocktails. I'm not certain I would consider it a destination bar. But convenient watering hole when in Saint Henri.

Pav Bhaji

Thanks, it looks like they swap out the bread for a crepe. I've never heard of a pav bhaji dosa before. Glad to hear that you recommend it.

Pav Bhaji

Since I had such an overwhelming success in finding places that serve gomtang, I figure I would ask a similar question.

Does anyone know any restaurants in Montreal that serve Pav Bhaji?

Thanks in advance.

Dorval/Pointe Claire for Sunday dinner

Smoke Meat Pete's, 283 1st ave., Ile Perrot.

Definitely not sun of the mill. And arguably the best smoked meat in town.

7. Foie Gras just abut anywhere
8. Confit de Canard
9. Pizza/Italian Submarine
10. Charcoal Grilled Chicken
11. Pea Soup

Anybody have any other specific foods that we generically do particularly well here?

Visiting Montreal in April after years away

Hymie is still alive and kicking, as well as working the door. Larry has taken over most of the day-to-day responsibilities at Beauty's.

None are "must-do." All are very good and very kid-friendly.

I'd suggest doing some research, and identifying those that you think your kids will like (ie do they prefer noodles to dumplings to grilled meats or pizza to sandwiches? etc.)

You know what your kids like way better than I do.

You might also want to either stick to those that are on the Plateau or near to Old Montreal. Or decide to visit places more off the beaten path. I didn't really take geography into account when making the list.

And by all means please let us know your impressions of wherever you go. And you might want to wait a couple of days in order to hear from other people.

The Wawel on Ontario & Frontenac just looks too clean and shiny. Kind of like the Dilallo's on Allard. Although now that I think about it, probably for the same reason.

And I wasn't so much lamenting the demise of Tatra, as questioning how true to the original experience Wawel could be as a seven (and counting) outlet chain. Similar to how Dic Ann's, anyplace but Pie IX and Chomedy isn't quite the same.

My guess is that, like Dic Ann's, they're starting in on the third generation, and dealing with all of their new ideas...

Tatra Travel (3628 Saint Laurent) is in the process of becoming the 7th Patisserie Wawel. I'm undecided as to whether this is a good thing or a not good thing.

And as an aside does anyone know where the first Wawel was/is?

Sugar shack

I'm not certain I would use the adjective "fantastic" to describe the food at any Cabane a Sucre. But these are more in line with the style of the Cabane a Sucre Au Pied de Cochon

La Tablée des Pionniers, 1357 rue St-Faustin, Saint-Faustin-Lac-Carré
Les Éclusiers par Apollo, 400 rue de la Commune Ouest

Upscale burgers?

Upscale
Au Pied de Cochon

Not necessarily upscale, but cooked to order and serving alcohol.
La belle et la boeuf
Tripes & Caviar
Sparrow
Mr. Steer
La Flammée
Burger de Ville
Restaurant Tous Les Jours

And as I haven't eaten there, I'm not entirely certain, but I *think* Le Diable à quatre and Decca 77 do cooked to order and have alcohol.
