If there’s one certainty in this city, it’s the fact that there are as many food bloggers as there are restaurants that specialize in brunch.  In the past, I’ve made some steps to get to know the players in both those categories, but not enough to really say that I know much.  Well, a stop at a restaurant boutique known as Le Cartet would hopefully remedy all that.

The month of April saw two big things in the realm of the Great Burger Search.  For one, the results from Philadelphia saw the light of day.  As that was going on, I had the chance to make a return to Boston for another slew of burgers and a second chance at a place that was closed the first time around.

A couple of months ago, I made my way to Westmount to check out one of the oldest restaurants in the city.  Along the way, I was scoping out Greene to seek out new places for my list.  Well, there was another place that wasn’t that far away.  That place was Bistro on the Avenue.

There have been two things that have started to crowd my life in the last year or so.  Those two things are sushi and all you can eat places.  While some people love them, others try their best to stay away from them.  I’m undecided on the topic.  But, a visit to Sushi St-Denis might push me in one direction or another.

Success is often made out of second chances.  I’m so grateful that I got a second chance in my career, where I’m doing a whole lot better than the first time around.  Like in life, restaurants or locations often face the prospect of getting a second chance.  Located in the West Island, Athena is a place that is rebuilding a reputation.

Lately, I’ve been on pizza tour that has included a few places that I’ve been meaning to try.  The quality of some of these places may vary, but there’s one thing that’s completely consistent, they all serve pizza.  If you’ve spent any time near the McGill ghetto, you would have, no doubt, heard the name Amelios.

The month of March is usually a very significant month for me.  Each year, I make some of my best visits.  This year, there’s no exception.  For the first time ever, I got the chance to visit the city of Philadelphia, thus getting 3 of their top burgers done.  In the weeks that will come, I hope to share with you the fruits of that labor, alongside the highlights of a trip that I won’t soon forget.

If there are two things on this planet that I like a whole lot, it’s bacon and dessert.  When you combine two things that you love so much, you have pure bliss or maybe, a massive coronary.  Well, on a fateful March evening, I had the chance to visit Al & Jo to find something that I could only dream of.

In 1912, the world was reeling from one of the most documented accidents ever.  That year may have been quite tragic, but there was at least one bright spot in this very city that we can be proud of.  For over 100 years, Montreal Pool Room has been serving the right kind of food to generations of hungry citizens.

In the city of Montréal, there’s one battle that’s just as fierce as the rivalry between the Habs and the Boo-ins or the Maple Laughs.  Like hockey, there’s one dish that unites us just as easily as it divides us.  If you haven’t guessed it by now, that dish is called pizza.  My latest stop for pizza comes from Geppetto.

Have you ever had a game plan that just didn’t go your way?  That’s to be expected in the type of world we live in.  With that in mind, you have a Plan B.  But, sometimes, even those kind of things fail and then, you have to go on the fly.  That’s how I ended up at MVP.

Tradition is a very important word.  Down to my ethnicity and my nationality, tradition is at the root of all that.  Regardless of how you may feel about this province and the political turmoil we’re all in the middle of, there’s one thing that you can’t deny.  We all love maple syrup season and going to the cabane.  This year, we set off to do that at La Goudrelle.

Whenever I look for a new place for this search, I try to find things that set it apart.  Montréal has so many places that have unique quirks which attract people from far and wide.  When I think of my own childhood and the fizzy drink known as spruce beer, I only have fond memories.  What makes things ever better is the fact that there’s a place in this city that makes their own and they’re quite proud of it.  That place is Paul Patates.

Now that we’re deep into 2014, we can think about what the year has in store for us.  As I’m writing this, there isn’t much time left until I get a chance to expand my boundaries once again.  Despite a few restraints on my upcoming trip, there is a lot of room to move around and get some really good burgers done.  So, in a few weeks, you’ll get to see the fruits of my labor and I can’t wait to share them all, no matter how big or small they might be.
