POLL: Montreal Bistros on a Budget

We have a few nights left in Montreal and are looking for a great bistro on a budget, so I'm turning it over to you to help us decide where to eat. We've already enjoyed L'Express, and last night we finally made culinary pilgrimage to Au Pied de Cochon (more on that experience later), so I've left them off the list. (And by "on a budget," I have in mind a bistro that has at least a few entrees under $20).

It's not an easy call: P'tit Plateau has the advantage of being BYOB; Lemeac has a special after-10 p.m. menu where you can get a two-course meal for $22, and isn't eating late always more fun?

Thinking of somewhere not on out list? Just add your suggestions in the comments. (Please feel free to comment on why you voted for your choice as well.)

Also, I'll be reporting back soon on the results of our bagel poll and my impressions of the winners.

And many thanks for all of the suggestions thus far--we're starting day three in Montreal with very happy--and very full--stomachs.
