In preparation for our trip to Montreal (we leave next Friday) I'm doing some online research. Shirley kindly directed me to a Wikipedia page about Quebec food, so I know I need to try the bagels and the smoked meat. Any suggestions on which deli's are best?
Then I went to Yelp to see what dinner restaurants are recommended. One of the highly rated offerings is called Chez Onoir--you eat in pitch darkness! You order your food before you are led to the dining room and seated, and your food comes cut up into bite size pieces so you just have to figure out how to get it to your mouth--no worry about table manners at this place! Has anybody ever done this? Sounds intriguing but probably not for the thing for us lol.
I'm sure I'll find all kinds of places on the internet, so maybe I can narrow it down a bit by asking you ladies if you have any recommendations, for any type of food? Dh doesn't eat mammals so we would want a place that offers fish, chicken, and vegetarian options. That rules out Tourtiere, and Poutine just sounds kind of gross to me.
Any ideas for things to do? We will be staying in Centerville near the convention center (dh is attending a conference, I'm going along for fun). I've been to Montreal once years ago, we went to St Joseph's Oratory and we drove up to Mont Royal but it was a cloudy day so I don't think we saw much of a view--we may try to do that again but this time we won't have a car.
The weather there seems to be all over the place at this time of year, crossing my fingers that its mild for our visit.
