Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

basil?!?! i must head back there then. just went yesterday and just had some big gay ice cream at gema.. summer is for getting fat

and they close at 7pm now since they saw that it was dead after that time (which is the case in little italy and nearby)

Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

im pretty sure they'll be adding more. its only the 2nd year after all

Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

and we know why they had to move, http://montreal.eater.com/2015/4/30/8...

Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

you mean the official launch 'cause its already opened (opened last friday)

Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

according to their latest instagram post, opening this wednesday

Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

saw that too when i passed by this afternoon. if its anything like buonanotte, its going to be very disappointing. at least, no expectation going in

Openings & Closings: April, May and June 2015

i was more thinking along the line of the one that opened near jarry (cochon caché) not long ago and there's this one but its good to have more options (and a closer one) even though people actually travels to cochon caché

another porchetta place?!?

and don't forget about les givrés 2nd shop opening on de castelnau just north of the market soon. that full stretch is full of ice cream :D

The New & Improved Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

but that place is for rent. i see a sign (for rent) every time i pass by

i prefer the one at GEMA as it is less sweet and more tart than Cornetteria. and there's the fact that it is made to order so it stays crispy longer. its the one thing i don't like about Cornetteria as pastries tend to sit there and get soggy unless you get there early in the morning

Local colas: 1642 and bec-cola

i tried the 1642 cola and it's not bad at all. expensive though. they are pretty easy to drink. i get a faint but enjoyable maple syrup finish. while drinking it, i get a maraschino cherry taste. must be the cola and maple syrup flavors mixing together to give me such impression

i bought it at le petit coin épicerie. figure that if i'm going to support a local business, might as well buy it from the charming little grocery store

that's why they call it Zeppole di San Giuseppe. Bottega are supposed to do it too but haven't heard anything else since yesterday morning

Food Events 2015

marché jean-talon has a mini cabane à sucre event on march 28 from 11am to 2pm

Uniburger Week

good way to celebrate. on top of that, its happening during mac n cheese week.. that's a lot of carbs

Food Events 2015

there's restaurant day this sunday across town. its pretty fun and interesting

The New & Improved Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

its official, its a starbucks. the sign is not up yet but its all papered on the windows..

Food Events 2015

i share the feeling. it'd be great if we can just get the best of something event instead of paying for exclusivity. kind of sick of it

Food Events 2015

there's an event this weekend, la grande tournée du chocolat chaud. part of the proceeds (of the hot chocolate sale) goes to tablée des chefs. the shops participating use valhrona chocolate so if you don't like barry, here's an event for a good cause

Food Events 2015

and the email.. double ouch

let's not forget mcdonalds. their coffee is pretty good, in term of chains. if you need coffee late at night, tim's and mcdonalds should do the trick. the neighborhood needs another 3rd wave coffee shop

The New & Improved Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

... not really surprising considering the neighborhood is buzzing but its definitely not needed. a tim horton's is already enough. it doesn't need another lousy coffee franchise

Food Events 2015

and we have poutine week during the first week of february, 1st to 8th

Cooking classes

i can confirm mezza luna is both. they will tend towards one language depending on the class attendees but they do bilingual. worst case, they do translate for those who don't understand

Openings & Closings January, February and March 2015

@lagatta, yeah, there's another restaurant and it'll be at the QV location right next to moustache café. hopefully, no more restaurants opening in that stretch because its starting to be saturated. and that's without considering the coffee shop that opened recently (village café)

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

i got one to try. for $7, can't say no. for a generic brand, this is not bad at all. i'd even say quite good

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

yep. days are getting longer now as the 21st is the shortest day of the year

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

since we're talking about panettone, i spot freshly made one at san marco near fabre station. didn't asked how much and i don't know if they are any good but they were definitely made fresh

Bakeries with holiday specialties? (Non-Yule logs)

thanks. there's indeed only 2 sizes. only the small ones are for sale this weekend. all the big ones are already reserved.. got it first thing this morning. seeing the shelves full of panettone was a lovely sight

Where can I buy a goose in Montreal?
