Eating in Montreal
Light meals: The conference is being held in downtown Montreal, with a large number of office workers and students stepping out at noon for lunch; there is a wide variety of places along McGill College and Ste Catherine. The office buildings for example, tend to have food courts, with some of the ‘ethnic’ counters in them (Thai, Vietnamese, Lebanese…) serving quite decent food. A map can be found below
More serious eating. The area around McGill is rather short on higher end restaurants but if you go a bit further afield you will be well served. There is, naturally, a certain emphasis on French cooking, but as for any large North American city, you will find cuisine from all around the world.
