Top Montreal chef Claude Pelletier, has recently opened Le Club Chasse de Peche Restaurant Bar Salon in Old Montreal.

My appetizer was a limoncello-cured salmon, sea-salt wafer, salmon tartare with a Delicious apple and celery salad, crème fraiche and a micro amount of tobiko, accompanied by a palate-cleansing shooter of limoncello, apple jelly and green tea ($13) (here)
which sounds like it can be good or horrific.

Will dining out on Sunday be difficult, or will most things be open?
We are a group of 8 & 1 4-year-old. Arriving on Friday morning (after breakfast, but before lunch), staying at Auberge du Vieux-Port. I'd like to walk most of the Underground self-guided tour & grab food along the way. Dinners are more formal & I'm considering Les Chevres & Cocagne.
Does Juliette et Chocolat serve breakfast & lunch? I'd love some good buckwheat crepes for breakfast.
Does Chez L'Epicier serve lunch? It sounds like the perfect destination for a midday meal.
Finally, of the 3 reviewed chocolate shops I found, which is the best & why? I'm looking at Les Chocolats de Chloe, Chocolats Genevieve Grandbois, and Au Festin de Babette.

The establishment Juliette et Chocolat doesn't sound familiar. If you want buckwheat crepes, you can find them at Un Crepe on St-Viateur West(near the original St-Viateur Bagel), Creperie Le Triskell(3470 St-Denis) & Creperie Brettone Ty-Breiz. I've tried buckwheat crepes at Un Crepe before. Ty-Breiz has been around for decades, & is a popular place.
Yes, Chez L'Epicier is open for lunch(it's a pretty casual establishment). Their lunch hours are 11:30am - 2:00pm.
Chloe & Genevieve Grandbois are the two you should consider, as they make their own hand-crafted hiqh quality chocolates. Au Festin de Babette don't make their chocalates(they have relocated to a new location around 15 months ago). Between the two local chocolatiers, I prefer Genevieve Grandbois, but some people prefer Chloe. Genevieve Grandbois features very very unusual flavors, while Chloe has more traditional flavors. Genevieve Grandbois's website is at http://www.chocolatsgg.com/. Genevieve Grandbois has its headquarters/main location on St-Viateur West(very near-by, Un Crepe(for the buckwheat crepes) & St-Viateur Bagel).

According to what one person posted at another food discussion site, Cocagne is going to close soon, if business doesn't pick up greatly.
Dinners are more formal & I'm considering Les Chevres & Cocagne.

For me the absolute tops is the Christmas buffet at the Beaver Club.....where do you eat in Montreal?
EDIT: OOPS! I just found the Montreal thread....merge me please!

Sounds like a conservative estimate to me
There are something like 3 billion restaurants in Montreal....
Since we visit friends when in Montreal, we don't eat out there much, which is a shame given the virtually limitless choice available. Hubby was appalled (but secretly pleased) when Rachel Ray revealed La Cabane on The Main on her $40 a day show...
BTW StephY how did you family meal go awhile back?

That's where we like to stay as well. Our usual B&B is on Sherbrooke east of St Denis. Amongst other amenities they have a nicely stocked wine cupboard as well as beer and other drinks in the fridge (honour system) - a service we've appreciated on more than occasion.
I really like PMR, several nice B&Bs there. ...
