Out of all of our 2015 trips, I think Montreal may have been my least favorite. I don’t blame the city for this, but I will say that I do not recommend going to Montreal on New Years Day. Most of the city is closed on that day so what you’re left with is crowded restaurants that don’t necessarily handle the volume of people too well.
Despite that, Sonia was able to find an amazing restaurant for our final meal of that trip. The restaurant was Bonaparte, and it is located at 443 Rue Saint-Francois-Xavier, Montreal, QC H2X 2T1. It’s located inside the Hotel Bonaparte, so enter the hotel and just walk through the lobby to get to the restaurant.
Unfortunately, we didn’t have reservations, but we were able to get a couple of seats at the bar. The bar serves the restaurant menu, so it’s not a bad option if that’s all they have. We both went with the prix fixe menu, which was a nice multi-course option that left us filled and satisfied with good eats.
1st Course – we both went with the lobster bisque
5th Course – Filet Mignon (me); Rack of Lamb (Sonia)
