Pub Sir Joseph

In my opinion is not long for this world. I passed by at 7 o'clock this evening and there was not a single person in the restaurant. Granted it is (was) a Tuesday night and it was early. But nonetheless, it does not bode well for the establishment.

I would guess that its obituary is in the opening/closing thread 1st quarter 2015.

Does anybody else think differently?

Something called Spirit House is opening at 244 Saint jacques. There is one already open in Toronto

Breaded Veal Sandwiches

I'm not certain I would qualify as a member of the CH police! Apologies for wagging my finger at you.

I haven't been in Toronto for close to 15 years, so my mistake on not picking up the differences.

Joe's has a great hamburger (on a panini) and since I haven't memorized the menu, I believe it is possible that they have a veal parmigiana on a panini. And while Bruno brothers and Marchigiani might be bakeries the only thing I ever order when I go are their awesome Italian charcuterie sandwiches, which leads me to think that they might have veal parmigiana as well.

Breaded Veal Sandwiches

Next time you need to specify you're looking for a veal parmigiana sandwich, not a schnitzel...

Felix Mish does schnitzel. I don't remember if La Grotte Des Fromages comes with sauce, but given the neighborhood, I'm pretty certain it does (it's been a couple of years since I hauled up there). You also might want to inquire at Bruno Brothers, Friulano, Via Pizza, Marchigiani, Joe's Panini, and Titanic.

Bocci does a chicken parmigiana sandwich, and Amelio's does an eggplant parmigiana sandwich.

Breaded Veal Sandwiches

Are available at Charcuterie Hongroise, 3843 Saint-Laurent
La Grotte Des Fromages, 4919 Jarry E
And I think also at Felix Mish, 1903 Jolicoeur

First trip to Montreal

To nuance cherylmtl's comment. Compared to bourbon bars in the US there are slim pickings here in Quebec. Yes, there are some very good bourbons available here, just not an awful lot. I personally, was referencing bars in town with a sufficiently large selection of what was available here that also did very good cocktails.

Something called Bolo Bolo, doing gourmet meatballs (probably similar to Le Ballpark) is opening in the old Café Méliès location inside Ex-Centris.


Street Fair Stalls

As there are four street fairs going on this weekend (Saint Hubert, Saint Laurent, Monkland and Wellington) I was wondering if anyone had any particular food stalls (not food trucks) that they prefer.

I know on Saint Laurent, the La Vieille Europe grill (chicken and sausages) is particularly popular.

They have an investor from the US who is interested in helping them open a second restaurant with the idea to use it as proof-of-concept for franchsing.

Up there I also quite like La Ligne Rouge and Petit Alep.

No worries, no problems. Ten to 20 years ago there was awesome Banh Mi at the corner of Saint Laurent & de la Gauchetiere, but it burned down. Five to ten years ago, Cao Thang was the bomb.

But sadly those days are long gone. Now I go to Marche Hung Phat, 7099 St Denis. Unfortunately it is not as convenient for me, so I don't eat as many Banh Mi as I would like.

Jardin Tiki, the review you've all been waiting for!!!

Will he have enough money to crush Tiki fan's worldwide after losing this battle?

I have to respectfully disagree, Vua is a chain making banh mi that won't make you sick, but are nothing to go out of your way for.

Les Temps Nouveaux is very nice, not too expensive, if a tad conservative.

The other places I like in that area are downscale, Uniburger or bars. The Cinematheque Quebecoise and Le Pèlerin-Magellan have awesome terasses. Brasserie Cherrier, Cheval Blanc, Ile Noire, Saint Bock and Pub de la Place are all fine drinking establishments that I frequent depending on my mood, bankroll, and companions.

First real foodie visit to Montreal - some specific requests

Glad to meet you here, and it looks like you should try Paul's Patates and Chez Ma Tante. They are as good as those at Pataterie Chez Philippe and Pierrette Patates.
