  1. Sara, For 150 people Not too much selection, except maybe Restaurant Du Vieux Port in the old port on Rue St-Paul. They have mastered the art of accomodating large parties and the food is very good! You wouldn't like the food at Mythos, plus the music is very very loud! At Vieux Port you will have your own floor with a team of waiters serving only your party.
  2. Pistoles are the best to work with!!! Much easier than fighting with big blocks!
  3. vinfidel...your one tough chocolate cookie!!! I see you dont play games with chocolate!!! I will take your recommendations seriously! However I was as surprised as you to hear that lesley uses vanilla extract!!!
  4. thanks lesley & carswell..thats what I needed to know... glad to hear that farinex carries this stuff! Will definitely try valhrona!!!
  5. And the reason I'm in the montreal forum...is because I would like to know who distibutes these chocolates very hard to find good chocolate... everywhere I look its bakers!
  6. Just one more quick question , what do you think of caullbaut? Is it any good?
  7. Which brand is the best for chocolate deserts? This goes out to all you pastry chefs!
  8. I wouldnt recommend vegera.. very blahhh..boring... very small, no decor, no ambience, not a good wine selection at all... they recently lost their chef and the owner's son is now the cook... nothing to offer i believe! My three previous choices for greek still stand as the best! Yes its Tony Massarelli who now partly owns Quelli Della Notte... have heard that their food is no longer as good! Maybe Modavie would be a good choice too.....Mediterranean restaurant with live jazz...just no dancing! But definitely an impressive restaurant!!!
  9. I'm sure utopie is a great restaurant but 2 hours away!!! There must be great restaurants around montreal too!
  10. The food at Mythos is not like before and yet the prices have increased dramatically.....wouldnt recommend as an impressive dining destination!!! The low ceiling and abundance of cigarette smoke (lack of ventilation) make it very uncomfortable!!! Not a good place to bring clients!!! Would definitely go to another greek restaurant if you want to impress someone such as Lesvos, Ammos or Milos...which play greek & mediterranean music in the background! And they all have amazing fresh fish!!!
  11. We have many good new restaurants in and just out of Montreal that have yet to be reviewed, maybe one of them might surprise us. As for all the regular top restaurants..that have been around for years, I find that they have become lazy, and dont impress no more!
  12. Sting...lol I guess its been a while since he made an album, needs a new source of income! I would still rather see a Louis Vuitton though!
  13. I still believe that no olive oil is as good as 9$/750ml Irini from Greece...If I were to spend crazy money, I would rather spend it on a good bottle of wine rather than an expensively packaged and priced olive oil!!! What next??? Louis Vitton bottled olive oil???
