Openings & Closings July, August & September 2014

Aouch! Rosèmere or Dix 30? Wow. I've been to both places several times, but Biarritz never disappointed. Depends maybe what you are looking for.

Openings & Closings July, August & September 2014

It is a shame. It was one of our sure bets in the city. They attracted regular customers. There was always more publicity about le Comptoir just next door. But food and service were way better at Biarritz. The menu changed often and everything was done well with care, but no fuss. I am really sad to see this restaurant close. I think the team really cared and delivered quality all the time

Best Pastry shop (patisserie) in Montreal?

I can map montreal by its pastry shops, and I have regular stops like Gascogne ... but must tries:

patisserie G&G on Mont Royal street just east of Papineau. Since she makes everything fresh, the offers of the day may be limited in the store - so do consider ordering something from the extensive catalogue. My coups de coeur - is a vanilla mango combination - it is just heavenly. You can check the website and download the entire catalogue (click on commander). Geraldine is an exceptional patissière.

the new Olivier Potier has been mentioned in other posts.

Maison Boulud (at Ritz) is worth it - do not skip the exceptional desserts of Suyin Wong.
