Porker your right on, a little rock never hurts anyone. My friends are all rock. My wife and I went to bistro a Jojo last visit and loved it but the couple with us is all rock. They would probably never leave Crescent street I would bet.

Thank you for your ideas they all sound good to me. We may have to hit a couple different spots but I do love a nice pub. Will try to hit Else's first

It is hard to travel with other couples sometimes when your tastes are different. What I do is have them look at menus and tell me if its ok for them. I thought that APDC would be great for us and was alittle surprised that they choose it. Truth be told I believe that since you can read APDC's menu in english that they needed that. They didn't realize that Montreal was mostly French speaking until a couple days ago. When my wife and I go to Paris some menus are only in French and I translate them myself before we arrive. I enjoy leaving Pennsylvania and try to fit into places we visit. I enjoy being a traveler not a tourist if you know what I mean. Not everyone does that and that is perfectly ok as well. After APDC where would you go for a drink? Capt Crunch has a lot of good ideas but I cant hit them all. So I need to narrow them down.

I was lucky enough to be Bonefishing last week in the Bahamas and can't stand being back in cold weather right now. I look forward to walking a lot in Montreal, it's a great city to do that.

I found some great bottles at SAQ last time . But we can bring 8 bottles total if we need to. I love the Okanagan BC wines as well. While in Vancouver we found many BC wines we liked. I will check out 400coups as well.

Duo.D is out if you guys dont know it I am not going there. We love all foods but our friends are from Virginia and are more standard eaters. My wife and I love french but also would try most anything. Game fowl and great meats are high on my list but my wife likes seafood and pastas.

hi lagatta we LOVE Jean-Talon the Rillettes cheeses bread meat olives were great. we had bad weather in september so we went back to our room make a fire and had a picnic with all the food and some great wines. we later walked from Rue St-Paul up past Mcgill and up to Mont Royal. Nice walk and loved our day. Hope the terrasses open i cant take winter any more.

Hi Fintastic, looked at your other suggestions. Our friends are new to french style food and i worry alittle for them. Quartier General looks to me the one from your list that may fit for them. Also i have some wonderful wines i would love to bring. I DO NOT want to feel like I am in the States and they just don't know any better. But I love rabbit

my wife and i love to walk. we would consider it for sure. coming may 2-3-4. Is schwartz and the Main close enough in quality that it shouldnt matter to us? I love a good sandwich but I don't love waiting just to say i ate somewhere. The hotel said rooftop bar should be open(weather depends of course)

questions for food on the brain on nassau

Hi Food,we are back. Had a wonderful trip.Only dinner we ate out was Cafe Matisse. excellent duck and veal as well as pastas with different seafoods. courtyard is the way to go thanks. lunch at twin brothers potters cay for skyjuice and cracked conch.(good and alot of fun) not where i would bring a first date but maybe. Balduccinos was great(went there every day) close to us on east bay street. excellent duck confit as well as breads that were fresh and tasty. we had them make a double chocolate cake for a birthday that was rich and to die for. great shop if you havent been yet. solomons worked out great for everything else again right there on east bay so VERY convenient. my spot was Montagu though. i was there every day to buy fresh seafood. first day i bargined for 4 large lobsters whole 3 conch(they cracked for me) 2 whole nice size strawberry grouper and 7 whole yellowtails for $120. we were in hog heaven. i liked buying different fish and seafood everyday. first time i had lionfish and i loved it. bristol worked out for etoh and i almost forgot i snuck away for a long lunch with my wife at the Ocean Club at Dune.(really enjoyed that i can tell you tuna tartare to die for. thought that i would check Atlantis off my list and move on but i tell you we all had such a great time we will be back(with 4-5 days over to stella maris as well) thanks for your help if i can return the favor let me know....rick

hi Food, thanks for the continuing info. We are booking Matisse for the courtyard(hopefully tomorrow when i get together with the others coming to Nassau) I will have a car so I dont mind driving anywhere you recommend. is there now 2 Solomons locations? on to other things. my moms side of the family is canadian they are from Stoney Creek St Catherines hamilton mississauga and all around that area. we always went to Muskoka in the summers(Beaumaris) my name kevin25 is for Kevin Stevens #25of the penguins,( i am rick) anyway i saw some of your other posts and figured your were Canadian. i was wondering about your wine choice and where you buy wine in Nassau. my wife and i love a big red and will bring some wine but our friends will drink it quick i suspect. too bad about hockey this year :( my boys and i really miss it. thanks again

questions for food on the brain on nassau

hi Food, we are staying at Atlantis 4 night in a 2 bedroom suite so we have a full kitchen(they say). we are buying seafood whenever possible and potters is a must it sounds like. i love dominos a kalik and some good food. I remember paying dominos in south caicos with the old gents at a bar. probably one of the most fun times i ever had on a bonefish trip. also south andros has some good domino players as well(they all drink guiness not Kalik) cafe matisse is number 1 on my list when we eat out so I am glad you like it. right south of Montague looks like there might be some bonefish flats so i will be over there for a couple different reasons. thanks for the time on the bamboo shack let me know what you find out. by the way are you canadian? and what type of red wine do you like? my wife and i love a nice red. also i am going to lauderdale in march can you help with a good cuban spot for lunch. thanks again.

hey Food I was looking on google maps is the Montague spot the same as the Nassau fish market? it looks like East Bay St comes to intersect Village and the road is then called Eastern rd. where is the paved lot when your at the intersection? thanks

questions for food on the brain on nassau

Hi Food, i live north of pittsburgh pa and am coming down to Atlantis with 2 other families jan 9th. the 5 boys (total for 3 families) always wanted to try the water park at atlantis so here we come. I prefer bonefishing in south Andros or long island but this is a kids trip. do you bonefish? the info above is very helpful. the 3 dads love seafood and we love to cook fresh stuff. Solomons sounds good but like you i will try to buy fresh whole fish if i can and crawfish. Sorry about Travellers Rest that was our lunch spot waiting for connection flights to other Islands from Nassau. I will try to find Bamboo Shack for sure. I do want to take my wife to Dune for an evening cocktail in their bar hope its nice, thanks for the info. you answered things for me in the past and I knew you could help. merry christmas and safe holidays to you.
