I think this comes as a result of americans being not so familiar with multi-lingual situations. At least that's how it was for me when I moved there...once I chilled out and just started with a polite "Bonjour, Hello" it was pretty obvious which language I was better at and people were pretty nice about it (99% of the time). Some people aren't very good at English and lord knows my French was terrible. Waitstaff know that americans tip better than europeans so once they figure that they are usually very nice to you.

I think pretty well anywhere you go, you need to look around and see how people are acting so that you behave accordingly.

Also for nightly entertainment, Montreal is the lap-dance capital of the world. At least it use to be. At least that is what I have been told.

Unfortunately, the times when I went to Montreal, I was in the company of women. So I couldn't get out.

Cote St. Luc

Hey guys,

I'm heading up to Montreal (staying in St. Luc with a friend of mine) in February and i'm wondering whats around for both good local beers and food. My friend isen't a big beer guy so he sticks to the large commercial stuff but i'm wondering if there are any microbrews around.

Also I've got reservations for Au Pied de Cochon but is there any other cool local restaurants I should be checking out?

Thanks
A

I live very close to Cote St-Luc (I'm in NDG) and there are quite a lot of nice places around there. Of course, Downtown Montreal is only a 10-minute cab ride so the restaurant options are plenty!

What type of food are you into?
Let me know and I shall give you a few suggestions.

Here's a local pub in NDG with good beer and food - gotta try those sweet potato chips on a hockey night Ye Olde Orchard
