Montreal. You think you’re so cute with your European flair, your sidewalk terraces, and joie de vivre. Your poutine and smoke meat sandwiches may set you apart from your sister cities, but you are more than that. You are a paradox of chic and grungy. A plethora of flavors, textures, and complexity.

This site is about the love affair one forms with Montreal and its food. Whether you’ve lived here all your life or have come for a short visit – you will know that the city’s restaurant scene affords an infinitesimal array of experiences. Our intention is to compound a series of posts about the quality eats the city has to offer. The reviews will focus on fantastic (and perhaps not so fantastic) restaurants we visit. Before showing you some of our favorite places, let’s clear the air a bit. This blog will focus mostly on food, but other subjects and venues are subject to review as well. Also note that we leave the city on occasion and when we do, we’ll be sure to write about great places to eat and drink outside of Montreal. Consider this a random place-to-go generator of sorts and tailored for the indecisive.

Also note that no place is too lowly, too trendy, to out-of-the way, too commonplace, too popular, too little popular, too new or too old to be featured.

Bon appetit!
