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.

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.

The first burger post of 2014 takes a look at the very last burger experience of 2013.  You might think I’m crazy for covering the kind of place that I do my best to avoid, but there are times where you can’t avoid things.  For the third time in my life, I got the chance to try something rather unique at Boston Pizza.

Here we are at the end of 2013 already.  It’s probably been said literally thousands of times by now, but where does the time go?  It’s about that time where we reflect on the year that’s been and what’s to come when the calendar changes.  2013 has been a great year for the search.  When I take a look at it, I’ve expanded the boundaries with visits to 2 major cities and a return visit to Canada’s capital.  There’s listing everything I have planned for 2014, since plans may change.  But, if it was anything like 2013, it will be another one to remember.

The year is almost at its end and the finish line is in plain sight.  At this particular point, as I’m writing this, I only have 1 more burger to do in 2013.  I can’t believe that we’re almost looking at 2014.  November was a big month and there were a lot of interesting things that took place.  One of the most notable things was the fact that I managed to reach my unique visitor total from 2012 in 11 months instead of 12.  That’s one step forward.

Sainte-Catherine street is probably one of the busiest pedestrian avenues in the entire city.  On any given day, you’ll find thousands of people making their way to one place or another.  It’s the kind of street where things happen at all times of the day.  That’s the case in the middle of the afternoon at Guido and Angelina.

Growing up, we all had those grandparents who cooked for us and had their secret recipes.  To this day, my own grandparents still cook weekly and gather their family around the dinner table.  There are some places that turn that family tradition into a advertising concept.  One of those places is Enoteca Mozza in Laval.

October is National Pizza Month and there’s only one way to celebrate such an occasion.  Pizza is probably one of the items that can give the almighty burger a run for its money and I happen to love eating it just as much.  So, in the ever-loving quest to find good pizza on this island, a trip to À la Vieille Cheminée was in order.

Have you ever been in a position where you pass by the same place for years and you’re not sure what goes on in there?  Well, the same can be said for restaurants.  Unless you’re walking right by it and are able to see the menu, you are wondering what they have to offer.  That amount of curiosity motivated me to visit a place that I’ve passed by so many times, Denos.

Finding food on the island of Laval is not an easy thing if you’re being particular.  The overabundance of chain restaurants is something that seems to be the key identity of Laval.  Some of those chains are good, while with others, they need not be mentioned.  One has to wonder how Portovino stacks up when it comes to scrutiny.

The Hyatt, which is attached to Complex Desjardins, lies in the heart of the Quartier des Spectacles.  Like most hotels, there always comes a dining option which never is too far.  There is one restaurant that you can’t miss because it isn’t very far off from the Hyatt.  That place is called the Six Resto Lounge.

Montreal has thousands of restaurants that belong in many different categories.  While a large quantity of them find themselves in select areas of the island, there are other possible gems that can be found outside that concentration of well-known restaurants.  It was really great to hear about a place that was close by where I worked and in an area where you wouldn’t necessarily think of decent places to eat.  The place in question is called Sapori di Napoli.

If I weren’t searching for burgers in the Greater Montreal Area, I would definitely be looking high and low for pizza.  In the past few years, pizza has been on the mind of many Montrealers and we wouldn’t have it any other way.  While it is quite the debate, pizza will unite us and at the same time, divide us.  My visit to F+F Pizza will hopefully unite me with some of the suggestions given to me by my faithful supporters.
