1967 - Name of Montreal restaurant

Recommended Posts

Good evening, Back in 1967 when the World's Fair was held on some islands on the St. Lawrence River. My wife (at the time) and I ate in a lovely, older, restaurant that I believe was in a hotel in downtown Montreal.  I don't remember the name (although I thought it was the Lord Beaverbrook but I think I am  incorrect) The restaurant was very fine.  I remember many wait persons and they were very well dressed in what I kind of remember to be black pants, white shirts, black vests, and ties.  The tables had fine linen tablecloths and thick napkins.  I seem to remember more than one server took care of our table. I remember the dining room to be quite spacious and having a number of tables and patrons. I have no recollection of the food but do fondly remember the service and experience.  I was wondering if anyone might remember the name, and history, of this restaurant and if it is still in existence. Thank you.

I was 1 year old at the time, native Montrealer...  your description could be anywhere. The name reminds me of the Beaver Club at the Queen Elizabeth (https://www.fairmont.com/queen-elizabeth-montreal/press-room/beaver-club/). Maybe that's it?

I attended Expo 67. I would have been 11 years old. We sailed up from Hamilton on the boat. 

 

Didn't eat anywhere posh - we ate on the Expo grounds a couple of times but the rest of the time fed ourselves on the boat. 

 

I've put the question out to a friend who grew up in Montreal - and I know that @Darienne grew up there and might know.
