Btw, non-comprehensive suggestions for restaurants we can go to, either tonight or the rest of the trip:Juliette Et Chocolat
- more desert-type foods and crêpes, but it's delicious if you want something sweetWienstein & Gavino's
- good Italian foodSt-Viateur Bagels
- they have a bakery with bagels alone, but also locations with a sitdown restaurant in the Plateau area as well as in NDGPoutineville
- I've actually never been before, but the name is self-explanatory. (I had a bad experience the last time I went to La Banquise, so going with this instead to check off the poutine criteria.)Cat cafes
- there are multiple different ones, so we can go to whichever is closest. KITTIES! ^_^O Noir
- I always have trouble convincing people to go with me because 1) it's in the $30-40 price range, and 2) the concept scares some people, but I went once and thought it was an incredible experience. The restaurant is pitch-black, and you're served your meal by sight-impaired waiters. In theory, the lack of sight is supposed to heighten your sense of taste, but in practice the best part is attempting to find your mouth in the dark. When I went, it was with near-strangers, so it was a great icebreaker.Aux Vivres
- a vegan restaurant, so like hell will anyone agree to this, but worth a shot.
The food is delicious, though.
If not-bad!Reubens doesn't work out, there are a ton of other smoked meat places (Schwartz's, Snowdon Deli, etc.)
Chinatown also has lots of restaurants. There are also so many sushi places there's no point in me listing them. :p
