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. But this part of town is also a hub for locals, who work hard and play harder and, until recently, there was a lack of simple, down-to-earth but still utterly interesting and delicious places to eat. 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…

BEER AND BELGIUM ON THE HIGH LIGHTS FESTIVAL’S MENU

Every February, Montreal’s bellies look forward to the Gastronomical aspects of the midwinter High Lights festival, also known as Montreal en Lumiere. This is the 11th edition and for the last 10 years the festival has treated us to some of the finest tables this city has ever known—and best of all, there are events for every budget, from chef-hosted, multi-course tasting menus to culinary walking tours of various Montreal neighbourhoods and workshops at Jean-Talon market…

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…

HOLIDAY SHOPPING FOR FOODIES IN MONTREAL

Montreal is a haven for the food-obsessed and this doesn’t only apply to our restaurant scene and ample farmers’ markets: we also have an awesome collection of retail stops on our cook’s tour. Here are some of those favourite stops for Santa when he’s got kitchen habitués and food lovers on his list…

MONTREAL’S BEST CHARCUTERIE

Charcuterie. The word is music to the ears of any meat-lover. It comes from Chair-Cuite, the French term for “cooked meat”, and is used to refer to any kind of preserved meat: sausages, pates, terrines, bacons, you name it. Most often, in France, charcuterie refers to pork products, but not solely, and in Montreal, the most famous form of charcuterie is our peppered beef brisket, otherwise known as Montreal Smoked Meat…

SLEEK WINTER CHIC IN MONTREAL’S SNOW VILLAGE

Starting January 6, Montreal’s Parc Jean Drapeau will be blessed with a magically stylish winter wonderland known as the Snow Village. For our friends from warmer climates: yes, stylish winter wonderlands are possible. Montreal is, after all, a city that holds one of its coolest festivals, Igloofest, in January. And since this village boasts a hotel, restaurant and bar among many other icy delights, I’d strongly consider cancelling that trip south and booking a ticket to come get down up north…

STEAK AND SCOTCH AT LA QUEUE DE CHEVAL

We’ve got far more accomplished food bloggers here at the Montreal Buzz, but when I saw that there was an event featuring a Single Malt Scotch ambassador at La Queue de Cheval, one of Montreal’s premiere steakhouses, I did what any editor worth their salt would do: assign the story to myself…

MONTREAL TV CHEF NADIA G ANSWERS FACEBOOK QUESTIONS

Nadia Giosia, a.k.a. Nadia G. is the sassy, rockstar host of Bitchin’ Kitchen. We paid a little visit to the Montreal set of her cooking show to ask her questions straight from her Facebook fans…

CHUCK HUGHES OPENS NEW RESTAURANT IN MONTREAL: LE BREMNER

It’s true that Montreal’s newest secret favourite restaurant is anything but a secret anymore. But while it’s tempting to relish the speakeasy vibe of Chuck Hughes’ beautiful basement Le Bremner, we really oughta share. Because a night out here spotlights something that makes this city great: Chuck Hughes—but not just his celeb factor, which is a little weird considering the chef-turned-TV-star still works the line in both his restaurants when he’s not off shooting his new TV show. Rather, go for the food and the vibe: Homey and inventive soul food, Montreal-style…
