  1. Just felt the need to chime in and say that Travis and Monika's new place is called L'Orignal (as in "The Moose"), not L'Original! Have not had dinner, but it's a great spot for late night drinks.
  2. I'm going to be in Boston for a couple of days and am doing some research into gastropubs. Where would anyone suggest I go?
  3. Lost power a few nights ago and wandered over to L'Express, where they informed me they are fully equiped with generators to feed us til 2am through the winter. Very good to know.
  4. I've had the pleasure of eating at G-M twice already since its opening on June 1st. Mayhem? Absolutely. The vibe is incredible, very laid back, no-fuss, Maine crab-shack like... chalkboard menu, with dishes served in the pan, rested on an old paint can top. You get the picture... dirty and delicious. The wine list is short, basic, and very affordable, written on a mini chalkboard. They also make killer bloody ceasars with giant king crab claws stuffed in the glass. yum. The seafood is dynamite. Fresh oysters, crab, shrimp and the like. They make a great lobster roll on toasted sesame bre
  5. wow. I honestly had NO idea. strange....
  6. I had the pleasure of eating at Version last night, and I have to mention something that's been ommitted from all descriptions that I have read so far on the restaurant ... It has a gorgeous terrace! It was SO pleasant to dine outdoors (and so surprised!) on a warm summer night... on a secluded terrace with high brick walls covered in green vines, comfortable couches, roomy tables, low light, and delicious food!! I had to be reminded that I was still in Montreal! The inside is nicely decorated... very modern, and occasionally over-the-top. It's sometimes a fine line between ultra-hip and tack
  7. mmm... great review. Thanks sf&m. I'll have to make it a point to stop by for some sashimi. FINALLY a place in Montreal that we can maybe rely on for skill and quality in the Japanese department! Is Jun I open 7days/week?
  8. I second that! Oishii has beautiful, beyond fresh sushi... and the white fish carpaccio is to die for! As is the seared black cod! I was there a week ago, and tried the chef of the day's specialty (apparently there is more than one sushi chef at Oishii)... thick squares of salmon sashimi coated in green tea sugar with a drop of yuzu mayo and a thin slice of avocado. Ask about this special little item. It's truly delicious. Oishii is a nice new addition to the mile end/outremont neighborhood.
  9. I attended the Marche Bonsecour tasting, and it was marvelous! I too had zero knowledge of this event until the very last minute. I had the pleasure of meeting Carol Cakebread the night prior to the tasting (a total fluke), and she very nicely invited me to the trade tasting which ran until 4:30 pm. A lovely event, not too big... with 25 Napa wineries showcasing their wines. A lot of them were new to Quebec and hoping to score some interest for importation (among them Peju and Corison). As a result, the actual owners of many wineries were present, and each winery had their best juice on hand t
  10. I finally made it to Pullman last week and had reserved for 4 at 8:30pm. Two of us arrived first and were told our table was not yet ready, so we were shown to a little table sticking out of the wall with no chairs around it... Before we knew it, our coats were swooped away by an attractive young woman. To my surprise, the place was packed. All types of people, young, old, dressed up, dressed down, filled the bar and the crooked zigzag tables. In the variety of the clientelle, there was a common denominator... this crowd was classy, modern, and in-the-know. We stood with two glasses of whit
  11. I'm planning on dining at this newish resto next week and was wondering if anyone has had the opportunity to check it out. I've heard good things so far... any reviews?
  12. I have to agree about Three Tomatoes. Definitely skip it. Hemingways, Pitcher Inn, The Garlic, Choices, American Flatbread.... all good recommendations, but all quite a long drive from where you are! I personally dont enjoy knowing that after my two or three or four glasses of wine, I have an hour and a half drive on dark snowy unfamiliar roads ahead of me. Granted, that's part of New England's charm, but let me recommend some closer eateries that I'm sure you'd enjoy. Right in your little town of White River Jct, there is a relatively new Northern Italian restaurant called Como Va. Try it, i
