My wife and I are celebrating the start of the next chapter in our lives with a weekend in Montreal in June. It is our first time in Montreal and we are staying at the Hotel Nelligan on Rue St Paul by Notre Dame.
I would like some suggestions on:
1. A nice quiet romantic restaurant. Referably one where our atrocious French won't be an embarassment, but i am working on that. Cab rides are ok, if necessary.
2. We honeymooned in Paris for a week many years ago. Every morning we would buy a loaf of bread, cheese, pate, wine(?) and set out exploring. I would like to do that again. So if someone can suggest a little boulangerie or shop(s) around our hotel i would be most grateful. It may just be a stroll and picnic along the canal or in a park; suggestions for that also appreciated.
