Hershie's Espresso Bar on Parc (@ Waxman's Tux)-Unique Montreal Caffe-

OK, now here is something quite Montrealesque and special....we found Frank, who used to be with Caffe Italia (and his coffee was always the best there) in a newly opened espresso bar at the back of Waxman's Tuxedo rental on Parc, just north of Mount Royal.
http://www.waxman.ca/
They have great espresso, mezzo latte (the best) and are so far, way under the radar....it is a unique experience (as is the barber shop in the back. Go and ask for a "Frank" or a "Billy".....you can't do better....Opened by Billy, as a tribute to his father (closed on Sunday, and Frank is off on Wednesday)

Restaurant Manitoba

Went yesterday for lunch.....very creative menu, and good helpful staff. Great review in Saturday La Presse:

My only reservation was that the wine by the glass was a "small pour" but go for the food and new tastes. This is a real opportunity to support young creative people who have a solid concept

Portuguese Chicken - which is currently the best?

Ma Poule Mouillee--These people are great, wonderful value, and if you like grilled sardines, go Saturday. On any days, they have a couple of specials in addition to great chicken options. These guys are the best, and their positive attitude and quality product/service merits our support

Excellent New Gelato - Chez Vincenzo

Hello,

i have already been here a few times....HIGH quality gelato. Creative young owner/gelato maker....500 Villeray, just east of St Denis....they also make good looking pannini. The gelato options change, so you don't have the impression that this is a factory with the "same old".....they are also open early for coffee.....Let's support these creative young people so they can continue to grow & develop!....Just like in Italy!

What's good on St-Hubert street

I just posted for a seafood/fish place called Espadon @ 7505 St Hubert, (north of jean Talon).....great value/quality.....would also consider Fixe cafe south of Petit Medley, across the street....good creative fare.....I also appreciate Casa Alantejo...again good quality and value. One more, on the way to Espadon is Viva Mexico, ...solid young chef, with good quality, and generous portions.

Great value - Grilled Fish/Seafood- Espadon -7505 St Hubert

FYI, we have started to be regulars here. You choose your fish/seafood, it gets weighed, and either grilled or deep fried (calamari). Extremely reasonable, and full meals are generous with rice/fries & salad. Last night my wife had a plate of grilled shrimp and another of sradines for under $8. My swordfish plate was $12. Other options included mussels, octopus, salmon, a few other fresh fish, and seafood pasta for kids. They seem to be starting up....get there now before prices jump. I do not think they have liquor licence.
