VALENTINE’S DAY IN MONTREAL

DISHCRAWL MONTREAL: “A PUB CRAWL WITH FOOD”

MONTREAL’S SNOW VILLAGE TAKES OVER PARC JEAN-DRAPEAU

Until March 31, Parc Jean Drapeau will be home to Montreal’s most wonderfully wintery attraction, the Snow Village. In fact, the Snow Village is an hommage to the city itself, boasting icy reproductions of Montreal’s building and monuments, not to mention a hotel, restaurant, bar, convention centre, chapel and, fittingly, a whole bunch of igloos.

24 HOURS AT LE GROS JAMBON

Montreal’s Old Port is a magnet for visitors to the city, with its scenic river views, cobblestones, horse-drawn carriages and what have you.

Now, there’s Le Gros Jambon…

LATE NIGHT CUISINE AT NOUVEAU PALAIS

The old Nouveau Palais was a sleepy, old-timey diner on Bernard street in Montreal’s Mile End neighbourhood, a basic bacon, eggs and late-night poutine affair. But the new Nouveau Palais is under different management and the times they are a changin’. The latest incarnation of this storied diner has everyone buzzing because it offers restaurant goers the charm of the classic diner experience with a brand new menu that comes to life at night…

OLD MONTREAL’S HAPPENING GOURMAND WEEK

Brace yourselves and your belts but not your wallets because Montreal is following in the foot steps of Toronto and New York with our very own version of the popular “restaurant week” and it storms through the bellies of Old Montreal in January. In typical Montreal fashion, it’s not just a week, it’s actually a 21 day celebration of some of the best restaurants this city has to offer…

MONTREAL’S BEST BUCHE DE NOEL

The splendid Bûche de Noël (literally translated: Christmas Log) is a French pastry tradition; a festive and decadent dessert that is meant to look like the type of firelog that you might saw down in the mighty Canadian woods for a holiday hearth. Served at holiday parties and Christmas dinner, they’re so much a part of our holiday tradition that they warrant the lede in this article about Christmas in Montreal from the New York Times.
