Going to New York for a few days

My husband and I are visiting NYC for the first time for our anniversary. We were thinking of going to Bolo, Esca and Babbo. Are these good choices? Do you have any suggestions? We like any kind of food as long as its good and tasty. Thank you.

best chocolates in montreal?

I also agree with you all. I have tried the caramel, the Tortelines (salted caramel with a pecan all dipped in chocolate), the candied ginger dipped in chocolate (great!) and a vast selection of chocolates. Piment d'Espelette is particularly good. I don't care much for the chocolate bars, the firts ingredient being sugar, not cocoa. I also tried the 'kit' for hot chocolate: it was OK.

Restaurant in Hotel de l'Institut

I went there a while ago with my husband. Since it was a week-end, there weren't any students. The food was good, classic, well executed. The restaurant itself is pleasant. It is a good restaurant but it is not exceptional.

I don't recommend Club Chasse et Pêche. The food was not up to our expectations and it looks to me like a tourist trap. I recommend Cocagne and L'Express on St-Denis and Brunoise on Roy. The food is top quality, as is the service. We have never been disappointed.
Soupsoupe is a good place for tasty soups and sandwiches. Olive et Gourmando is a good place for a relaxed Thursday night dinner.

If you had only one night in Montreal where would you eat?

I have to disagree on Club Chasse et Pêche. I have been there with my husband and the food is not worth the price. It looks like a tourist trap to me. The pied de Cochon is unique in a good way. I would also recommend Brunoise, L'Express and Cocagne.
