ISO restaurant in Outremont for small group for lunch.

Paris-Beurre would be perfect for such an occasion. Their private room is really nice, food is solid although not very inventive and lunch menu is quite affordable... dessert included!

Yokoso Sushi on Mont-Royal closed last weekend.

LeMeac - go - get the Foie, get the Duck, and get the French Toast. Thank me later.

Wow thanks for this great link! Very interesting story.

Leméac is the name of a famous publishing house that used to have offices in this building. I think it still exists but has moved elsewhere. It was rather a big name in the québec book world in the 50's and 60's, but not any more.

5 a 7 suggestions in Old Montreal

Maybe Verses Bar, in Hotel Nelligan. Very nice and cosy settings.
Never eaten there, though.
Good luck!

400 Coups or Le Club Chasse et Peche

Both are very good and you won't be disappointed. But if your SO loves desserts, go for Les 400 Coups! The pastry chef is just amazing.

Marché Jean-Talon becoming Loblaws

On its Web site, the Cororation de Gestion des Marchés Publics de Montréal states its mission: « To give Montrealers access to local produce in their public markets that relate to their values »
This could almost look like a joke. But it's not funny at all. It's a shame, it's a disgrace.
M. Rémillard is ont of the best producers, maybe the best. JTM has to back up, apologize and change its policies. Period.

Both excellent IMO.

Saucisse de Morteau in montreal?

You can find a very good saucisse de Morteau, maybe the best in Montreal, at the charcuterie Queue de cochon, 6400, Saint-Hubert 514-527-2252.
They have a huge choice of sausages and cold cuts, and the quality is top notch.
