restaurants Rouses Point, Montreal

I dropped by a restaurant in Rouses Point, NY the other day and it proved to be very pleasant. The Anchorage of Lake Champlain has an attractive dining room overlooking the lake, which was the landing place for a number of black and white birds that may have been loons. Lunch of a grilled chicken sandwich with lettuce and french fries and a beer came to about $12 U.S. The restaurant, which is attached to a large bar and adjoins a motel, offers especially good deals in the late afternoon. Early bird specials start as low as $4.50, and during March they were offering a turkey dinner with all the trimmings between 4 and 6 p.m. for only $6.95 U.S. Easter brunch is available next weekend for only $12.95 U.S. If you happen to be in the far northeastern part of NY, this is a good place to stop for a meal. The phone number is 518 297-4201.

In Montreal, I have recently enjoyed two meals at a Mexican restaurant called Manana on St. Denis, just north of the Sherbrooke Metro station on the east side of the street. The decor is cheerful, especially on a cold early spring day, with colorful Mexican tablecloths and china, and lots of Mexican folk art on the walls, including a small exhibit of copies of works by Frida Kahlo. The food is the usual enchiladas, tortillas and other Mexican specialties, and the price is right. A three course dinner starts at around $13.50. Service is very pleasant but can be slow --I guess the name of the restaurant warns you. They need more serving staff in the evening, but if you aren't in a rush this can be a reasonable choice on a street crowded with restaurants.
