Quebec City

Hi,

My friends and I are visiting Quebec city for 1.5 day. Would really appreciate some suggestions for bars, restaurants, clubs, cool places, or just anything. 

We are really looking to explore the city.

Thanks:)

My wife and I just returned from this area around three weeks ago.  Thanks to Anthony Bourdain, who recommended, on Trippy, L'Affaire est Ketchup.  A fantastic meal with one of the best chicken dinners I have ever had.  I was also able to, after a few glasses of wine, muster up the courage to try sweetbreads.  Fantastic!  If you can get a table by the "kitchen" and watch the chef and sous chef at work and the stovetop they are using, you will wonder how they are making such great food.  We also had a fantastic lunch at La Galette Libanaise.  This is on the Grande Allée, which feels a little like the Champs Élysées in Paris.  Take the time to either stay, or stroll through and around the Fairmont Le Château Frontenac.  We enjoyed the changing of the guard at La Citadelle de Québec and taking the funicular down to the shops, bars and restaurants just off the waterfront around the funicular.  Just back to the west, and below the fortified wall is a nice market called Marché du Vieux-Port de Québec where we sampled some foie gras, pates and apple libations, which was rather fun.  Enjoy!

The problem would be, would you have anough time.  There is so much to see in Quebec City.  You cannot mist the Vieux-Québec (old city).  You will have lost of choices at all ranges of $$. Leave you usual fast food chains aside.  Live a little experience good food and historial landscapes.  Try one of the nice restaurant in the steps going from the Vieux-Québec to the Basse-Ville (original site of the city during collonisation). An other street with lots of good choices is Rue Cartier.  If you don't have a place to stay yet, try Relais Charles-Alexandre ( go on Internet for there site) on Grande-Allée E near Rue Cartier. It several transformed joined buildings into a Inn, with cackeling floors, breakfast included. Very nice ! I used to go there frequently for work.  It's within woking distance of Vieux-Québec.
