Montreal weekend - thoughts?

TF -

I'm not sure if you have left yet, but here are the notes from my wife and I:

Brunch:

Le Cartet - Interesting option that seems similar to O+G

St. Viateur - there is a sit down restaurant a few minutes from the take-out only store. MTL bagels are much more dense than say NY bagels and are interesting

Kouign Amann - fantastic, possibly the best breakfast food we had all trip.

Lunch/Dinner:

Holder - Known for their tartar and a decent option for a quick drink and bite to eat

Beaver Hall - STAY AWAY, awful food even though it was recommended by the conceirge

Montreal Poutine - We were not a fan of the poutine here. It seemed overly salty

Bars:

L'ASSOMMOIR - Great Martinis, but the music becomes incredibly loud after 9 pm or so.

Royal Merchant - This bar had a very american feel, but was decent. The food was average at best.

Sarah B - Hotel bar at the intercontinental with passable food

Places we wanted to try, but couldn't get to because it was MTL restaurant week:

Le Club Chasse et Peche
Toque

Random, but we drove up from NY so if you are coming from that direction you may want to stop at the Culinary Institute (Hyde Park, NY) or 132 Glen Bistro (Glens Falls, NY).

Hopefully some of this helps!

We were hoping for one meal that is upscale and romantic. The place where you might go for an anniversary or special occasion. Are there any must-go places for that?

My wife and I are also travelling to Montreal soon. I have heard that:

Schwartz's is a great deli (but it may only be good for the meats).

Fairmont or St. Viateur are the places to go for bagels.

Toque or Pied Au Cochon are good for a nice dinner

30th Birthday Dinner for my Wife

Hi, I am looking for a place to have a 30th birthday dinner for my wife. We are looking for 2 people, romantic, upscale and with amazing food. Probably around $350 total as the limit. Any suggestions aside from the usual (Le Bernadin, Per Se, Jean Georges...)?

Extra Spicy Restaurants, Please

Hi,

My father-in-law to be and I love spicy food. I want to take him to a very spicy restaurant in the city on Saturday. We have tried Brick Lane's Phaal, but it wasn't enough.

Any advice?

Thank you.
