I might be in Montréal for a few days next week, any recommendation for food, bookstores and general things to do?
What kind of things are you interested in doing?
For food, you have to try poutine, obviously. La Banquise is the most famous but I think Poutineville is better. There is also a great Japanese izakaya called Kazu which is one of my favourite restaurants ever.
I've had Ippudo a couple times over the past few stops in NYC and it didn't strike me as good. I was far more impressed with Totto ramen despite it being a chicken based broth (that ain't even a bad thing).
