I wish I had some suggestions for you Andy. The only times I have been there I don't think we ate very much. It was mostly just liquid lunches (and dinners and probably breakfasts). We would spend all of our time in the various bars and clubs on St. Catherines Street.

That is the beauty of Canada Andy. The drinking age is 18 and they do not card very hard.

Yup, Schwartz's or Ruebens for Mtl smoked meat. The Mtl Pool Hall on St Laurence for steamed hot dogs. Au Pied du Cochon ( on Duluth), Joe Beef ( on Notre Dame W), and Toque! (Old Mtl).. Although I haven't been to them, friends have, and gave great reviews. The Plateau area is wall to wall restaurants. Marche A****er has some great deli's etc. Many of the restaurants are BYOB, so if you're making a reservation, you may want to ask them. Le Faubourg on Ste Catherine has a great bagel shop, you can watch them making the bagels. If I think of anything else, I'll be back!

I am not sure if this is the same shop, but Anthony Bourdain went to a bagel shop in Canada and was very skeptical. No one can make bagels like they make in NY. Well after he tasted one he still did not think they were like NY bagels exactly, but he still thought they were amazing. Worlds better than he had expected.

I think he probably went to either the St Viateur or Fairmount ones, they're institutions in Montreal.
Another one to add is Milos ( Ave du Parc). They have great seafood, and their grilled octopus and calamri are wonderful. If you happen to go by a SAQ ( their liquor stores) stop in and check out the Ice Cider. I'm had a few really nice ones.

I think I can help . Depending on your budget....

Dun's, Schwartz are famous for their smoked meat
Moishes, an incerdible steak house
Au pieds de cochon, European cuisine with canadian products
Chez Toké...for an experience that is hard to forget.

Tell me the food and budget and I can continue.

Regards,
