Almost 5 years in, it’s getting tougher to find places that make it hard to ignore. This island that we all call home has a lot to offer and there are surely some places that fit that bill. When you make your way to the west end of Westmount, you’ll find a place that is known as Brasserie Central.
The month of May is important for just about anyone. Most schools are winding down their academic years and that causes a lot of us, including myself, to be really busy. In the realm of this search, there were a few loose ends to tie up. I actually had a personal situation which could have caused a lengthy interruption to my normal routine. Luckily, that was sorted out rather quickly, thanks to some pure, dumb luck.

Westmount is one of the nicest and most affluent neighborhoods on the entire island of Montréal. Part of the reason for that reputation is the storied past that is such a vibrant part of today’s culture. Included in the city of Westmount is a restaurant that lays claim to being the oldest on the entire island. Since 1920, Chez Nick has been a vital part of all that is Montréal.

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.
