Subject: Montreal in October
Dear Elizabeth, We recently returned from a week's stay in Montreal and Quebec City. It was our first visit and we loved it. We had a wonderful rate from the Ritz Carlton at 1228 Sherbrooke 800-241-3333 and liked that location. It's near great restaurants and across from the Museum. The exchange rate made our vacation a great bargain. We ate at Bice 1504 Sherbrooke 514-927-6009 our first night, modern Italian food. The weather was warm and we sat outside in under a huge tent. The food and the wine was excellent as well as the service. Moishe's, has been in operation since 1938 and is an upscale but not fancy restaurant. They have a web site you can check out. I'd advise that if you go there, be sure you're hungry. We wanted to go back but didn't have time. After strolling around the Old Town we went to Chinatown which is nearby and had dim sum at Ruby Rouge Restaurant 1008 Clark Street, 514-390-8828. For a sumptuous deli style breakfast, we found Reuben's on Rue Ste. Catherine's 514-866-1029 also a web site If you're looking for furs, Rue Mayer is the place to go. We liked the folks at Hercules, ask for Pat or Peter, it's a family business. Also, if the weather is nice a Bateau Mouche is fun and gives you an overview and history lesson for an hour or so. Montreal is a walking city so be sure to take comfortable shoes. Have a great time and let us know all about it. Happy Travels, Rebbi Providence, Rhode Island
