Greg's list of places to eat

Back to my main page.

Note: I no longer live in Montreal, so with few exceptions I have not updated this page since 2005.

Note 2: this page was never organized that well... Some info is missing, some names may be incomplete. But it's a decent starting place, I think.
Prices are obviously just a general indication, subject to time (may be out of date), and subject to appetite (may be more expensive if your gastronomic rapacity knows no satieties... Huh? ). Alcohol and desert is not included, as a general rule. Example notation: $5- means 5 bucks or less, $9+ means 9 bucks or more. Roughly. I tried to have prices include tax and tip but for some listings this may not be true.
