  1. La Chronique is fantastic-please try to have dinner there while in town-you will also most probably enjoy Anise. Both of these are featured in this Board. If you can get your hands on the recent Gourmet issue on montreal you will get lots of ideas..Club Chasse et peche should also be on your list.. Alida
  2. Hi. You can get great butter at Qui L'ait Cru shop in Jean Talon market. I believe they also carry cream. Alida
  3. Hi Bethala and welcome to Egullet. I know you will have an excellent mini vacation in Mtl. As for your questions I would skip Eggspectation-really nothing special at all-I would rather have breakfast at someplace like Reservoir on St laurent or even L'Express or Lemeac-another great bistro on Laurier street in the Outremont area of town-yes they each do a breakfast- and this way you can go to Brunoise for dinner-it really would be something enjoyable-I have never had a bad meal there and I think you will be surprised at the quality of the food for the cost...Brunoise has a website where you can take a look at the menu for the season-www.brunoise.ca , You can also ask for reservations online. They are not located very far from Chocolats de Chloe... When you arrive I suggest you go to Atwater market for your cheese snack it will be closer to where you are staying-save the Jean Talon market for when you have time to explore. Another place worth considering is taking a cab and going to Bu -a great wine bar on St Laurent where you can have a nice glass of wine and a small plate of nibbles before your dinners. I would ditch Maestro-much better oysters at Joe Beef... Have agreat time-and don't forget an umbrella-there may be some rain unfortunately... Alida
  4. Thx-will try Beach Bistro! Alida
  5. Thanks for the update! Alida
  6. Hi. A friend and I have rented a condo on Ana Maria Island for a week starting April 17th. Any recommendations for dining there or nearby? What about some great wine shops and fish markets etc-ie places where we can pick up some great produce and fresh fish to have at lunch. Thx for your help Alida
  7. As a subscriber I would be very pissed if there was a separate "Collector's Edition" as I did not receive it. I would feel cheated as if they held out on me. ← Same for me as a longtime subscriber ie over 15 years I would be really upset if the subscribers would not have received it...Has anyone called Gourmet to find out?? Alida
  8. Julien Leblanc-they have offices on Sherbrooke street -catered a black tie gala for the law firm I was working at a couple of years ago--about 400 people--I had no complaints about the service or the food-mind you I picked one of their higher end menus and had a couple of tastings before... hope this helps Alida
  9. Try some more out of the way places like grocery stores(ie Loblows, Provigos etc) and pharmacy chains that carry magazines-that's where I found some for friends of mine! Alida
  10. Hi. I was wondering if anyone dropped by the first Salon du Chocolat held on November 12 and 13th at the Marché Bonsecours-I wanted to attended but was unable to. I am wondering what it was like and if it looked like a success?? Alida
  11. Many thx for suggestions! Alida
