Have you ever thought about the places that sit next door to the big ones? In life, no one ever thinks about second place or even third. But, there is a time where you have to give those things a thought. Located on a very crowded street for the best of Montreal is a restaurant called Vertige.

One of the culinary domains that hasn’t been touched yet is that of Portuguese cooking. In this city, when you think of places that fit the mold, you start with chicken. A lot of people stop right there. Like every facet of food, there is always another component that is overlooked. I was hoping to see some of that at L’Étoile de l’Océan.

During the 2011-2012 season of the GBS, Greek food has found a way into my plans when it comes to eating. While there are so many big time names in that realm of cuisine on the island of Montreal, we rarely get to add newcomers to that list. On a late June afternoon, I was about to be taken to a place called Sparta to see how a relative unknown in Greek cuisine would fare.
