Chez Schwartz Charcuterie Hebraique de Montreal; A

There are few places with as much history and local charm as this small deli on the Main with a large orange sign. Its name wasn’t always such a mouthful, after all, and now it has a musical in its honor. 198 more words

Restaurant Review

Au Pied de Cochon; A

Au Pied du Cochon is one of those contemporary “upscale downscale” restos (as my husband puts it) which overemphasizes its downscale quality while providing upscale food and service. 534 more words

Restaurant Review

Café Cherrier; B-

This café feels more like a diner on the weekend, especially when it’s too cold to sit outside. Food is adequate and has all that one would expect from a café in the Plateau, service is very laidback, and the main reason that one comes here is the awesome vantage point for people watching on Rue Saint Denis. 31 more words

Restaurant Review

Reservoir; A-

On the street that houses a number of closely packed, worthwhile restos, is yet another one in Reservoir, a casual yet trendy francophone bistro. Anglophones, bring a bilingual dictionary, as even the website’s English version seems to be perpetually “coming soon.” Still, the weekend brunch at this Plateau resto is something to look forward to when you want a contemporary Quebecois, foody-friendly repast. 147 more words

Restaurant Review

Suite 88; B-

High end francophone chocolatier boutique, though perhaps worth the high price. View their selection under glass counter tops, similar to perusing small artifacts in a museum, complete with little descriptive tags and pleasant yet slightly snooty clerks. 111 more words

Restaurant Review

Café Cherrier; B

Quaint francophone café with plenty of outdoor seating with a view to see and be seen. Eggs Benedict (1/2 benedict, 1/2 Florentine) passable, but a little heavy. 8 more words

Restaurant Review

Le Piton de la Fournaise; A-

Do you know where Reunion Island is? I didn’t, until I learned that that’s where my landlords currently reside. Apparently it’s a French island off the east coast of Madagascar – rather like a French Hawaii, as my husband puts it. 241 more words
