After an eventful morning of getting engaged (EEK!!), we made our way down to the city to grab some lunch. We had been told we needed to eat at Schwartz’s, so that’s where we decided to go.
When we arrived, the line was down the block. We debated for a while if we were going to wait or not and decided we should as it was obviously worth it.
Surprisingly we didn’t wait for very long before we were in the packed restaurant. We were seated at the bar before someone quickly came to take our order, and suggested we get the smoked meat sandwich since that is what they are known for. We also decided to order poutine, as we were in Montreal after all.
Our food came extremely fast, and it was delicious. It was the type of meal you didn’t want to end.
After lunch, we decided to slowly make our way back to the hotel, stopping to look at all the picturesque buildings on the way. We were staying at the Le Nouvel Hotel which wasn’t in the heart of downtown, but also not far from everything. To our surprise, when we checked in, we had been upgraded to a suite. The room was large and very nice.
By this point, we had walked all day, had so much excitement and had very little sleep, so we definitely needed a nap before dinner.
After our power nap we wanted to celebrate somewhere nice, so we found a steakhouse restaurant called Baton Rouge. We ordered champagne, before our bottle of wine, so we could properly toast to our future.
To eat we ordered a cheese dip with chips; I ordered the tuna steak with garlic mashed potatoes, and Chris ordered the prime rib with the same side. The food was quite good but was missing that little bit of vegetables.
By the time we finished dinner, it was getting quite late, so we decided to meander back to the hotel and call it a night.
