Subject: Eating in Montreal
Hi Ziners,

Here are a couple of restaurants that we enjoyed on our last visit.

The Restaurant Bonaparte is very good although I was sorry I didn't choose the table d'hote - I would have enjoyed my meal just as much at a much lower price. By the way, the hotel room includes breakfast in the dining room.

A good budget French restaurant in Old Montreal is Le Bourlingueur; 363, St. Francois Xavier, 514-845-3646. About $15 Cdn.

We had great soup and sandwiches at Titanic. Lunch only. Very informal. 445 St-Pierre, 514-849-0894

Last year we had a lovely fish lunch at La Marée 404, Place Jacques-Cartier; tél: 514-861-8126. The restaurant has outdoor tables overlooking the lively square.

Some restaurants allow you to bring your own wine. There are a few near Duluth Street and a convenient liquor store around the corner. Here's one list:

Or you might want to have famous Montreal smoked meat, a steamed hot dog, poutine (cheese curds with gravy on french fried potatoes) or Montreal style bagels!
