  • Where Do I Get Knives Sharpened? - MTL August 18, 2017
    I just wanted to point out that the restaurant supply shop Norten is now a branch of Équipements de restaurants de l'est. http://www.ere-equipement.com/ They still sharpen knives.
  • Good vegetarian pâté or terrine in Montreal August 11, 2017
    We're big fans of liverwurst and as it is dairy free I don't think I'd bother with the Tartex again. Texture is good though, it's just missing something. Liver maybe? Will have to check out this BioBon.
  • Weekend in Montreal August 10, 2017
    Please hit Le Bremner. Can't say enough great things about it. Drinks at the Cold Room before or after.
  • Lunch for 8-10 near Palais des Congrès de Montréal August 9, 2017
    I'm looking for a restaurant to host a gathering of 8-to-10 next Monday for a business lunch. Nothing too fancy but good food is always appreciated. Any recommendations?
  • Restaurant in Montreal from the 60's August 3, 2017
    My studies are in languages and history, and I'm very interested in immigration and what one might call labour history, but it would certainly also pertain to small businesses, as so many were founded by different waves of immigrants. As you can see, Jean-Talon is one of the longest streets in Mtl, cobbling together many […]
  • 60's montreal restaurant on decarie? August 2, 2017
    Was this before the expressway?
  • Jean Talon Market & Vicinity 2017 August 2, 2017
    Thanks, I'll be looking for them. I wanted some small eggplant (often it is creamy white, but the colour doesn't matter) to stuff, but there are only large deep purple ones and some of the lovely Sicilian ones. Perhaps I'll buy a couple of the latter and make slices to roll with my stuffing instead, […]
  • Openings and closings, July, August, September 2017 August 1, 2017
    Saw an opening soon sign for Sugar Marmalade at 1226/1228 Bishop. It is a Asian (possibly Taiwanese) dessert and drink place. They also seem to offer some savoury food items. They have various locations in Ontario.
  • Montreal Restaurant Wish List August 1, 2017
    CC&P and 400 Coups are divine, but don't forget Damas!
  • ISO Freeze-dried berries or fruit August 1, 2017
    Guess it may be too late, but I have seen it in health food stores, specifically Rachelle-Bery at St-Laurent and Villeneuve. I think it's with the baby and toddler snacks. There is a brand called City Food or something. Not quite downtown, though. Maybe Fou d'Ici would have it? Are there any health food stores […]
