The beef that Lawrence is carrying other places in Montreal were also carrying. Their beef is over-rated. Hardly any marbling in their beef. Just because it's so called ethical butchery meat, the beef doesn't have to be so lean.

It's not an odd concept(it's been served in Montreal & many other places in North America). Just that not many establishments outside of Philly do it very well.

Yep, that's the case according to Montreal Eater piece. One of them Stephen Shiller, I remember years ago doing those very very cheesy annoying TV commercials with his father on local Montreal television for their business.

Best Souvlaki in Montreal???

OK, I just checked above for your comment regarding Elatos. Which meat of Elatos you thought was very good(their gyro or souvlaki)? They're primary known for their gyro(I've eaten at Elatos 2-3 times, only tried their gyro, no souvlaki).

Best Souvlaki in Montreal???

You're talking about the lamb souvlaki at Yia Sou that's tender & well seasoned(you're not talking about Elatos which you haven't been to yet)?

Good Chinese in cote des neiges area?

Their clientele is mostly Asian(as opposed to Kam Shing with almost no Asian clientele)?

Montreal restaurants with vegetarian options, including a special-occasion place?

Last time I checked(if I remember correctly), Schwartz's Deli next door(generally for take-out only of Schwartz's Deli food), has spicy brown deli mustard for sale.

Cronuts?

As Glaff just posted it's made by Dliche. I don't think Dliche hides it, that it's also sold there.

Dim Sum Mtl, are they connected to a restaurant? If yes, which one?

Thanks for your review. How long does it take for one pizza to cook(about 90 seconds)? So the crust is not dark in some places(since you said it was undercooked)?

It was operated by the same owners as Pizzaiole?

I was under the impression, wood-fired ovens are disallowed in Montreal-area for new establishments, unless they take over an old establishment with pre-existing wood burning oven.

On the other hand, it wouldn't surprise me if I go to the restaurant itself, their menu would be French only. I've been to West Island restaurants, where majority is English customers, but menu is only in French. I would make sure it's in both French and English if running a restaurant, no matter where in Montreal-area.

anyone eaten at Schwartz's in Montreal recently? [moved from Ontario board]

No. It's made for them according to their specs. I still prefer Snowdon Deli smoked meat over everybody else.

eggs rolls

Just heard a radio commercial on Montreal radio earlier this week for Yangtze restaurant(it's still around). Presumably it's same one mentioned by JerkPork here.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

I would like to see the proof. Not that it's not possible. Last I heard, Queue de Cheval wasn't using Pat LaFrieda. It's was the 1221 Steakhouse in it's brief run, that used Pat LaFrieda.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

Yep nowhere in the Montreal Eater story does it say dry aged. Also on the package, nowhere does it say dry aged. I suspect, the steaks never go through Moishes Steakhouse. It's just produced for them, under their name. The steaks at Moishes Steakhouse, are individually cut & dry-aged by the steakhouse.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

It's much more expensive sourcing US beef, than Canadian beef.

Moishes Steaks at IGA

Moishes's beef source comes from the US(not Alberta).
