Palm Springs’ Uptown Design District has seen a burgeoning number of restaurants in recent years that caters to the classy and cool instead of the historically kitsch. Workshop Kitchen + Bar is the latest addition to the scene, whose seasonal menu...
286 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 1T6, Canada
Ah, The City of Saints—La Belle Ville—Canada's glorious cultural capital. There's no better place to have a Canadian experience than in this great city. And there's no better place to begin your day than the gourmet cafe, Le Gros Jambon. It all...
1100 Rue de la Montagne, Montréal, QC H3G 0A1, Canada
This is a 5-star boutique hotel located in the heart of Montreal, across the street from the Centre Bell, home of Les Montréal Canadiens, and tucked along famed rue Sainte-Catherine. Was I blown away during my stay here? Yeah, and then some. After...
351 Rue Saint-Paul O, Montréal, QC H2Y 2A7, Canada
1126 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2J 1X8, Canada
I'll be honest—these are the first macarons I have had in my life. Not being an authority on the delicate little bundles, I can't say how these compare to what you'd find at other bakeries in the city, but from a dessert perspective these were...
110 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal, QC H2Y 1T2, Canada
A church—or, at least, a small chapel—has stood on the site of the Basilica of Notre-Dame since shortly after Ville-Marie (Montréal's predecessor) was founded in 1642. The current building, however, dates to 1829 and was...
Montreal, QC H2Z 1K4, Canada
Montreal's Chinatown isn't the most expansive East Asian enclave in North America, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in restaurants, shops, and shady dens of ill repute (just kidding). I like wandering up and down De la Gauchetière Street...
1412 Rue Sainte Élisabeth, Montréal, QC H2X 1L4, Canada
Tucked down a nondescript route off a much busier thoroughfare, the building out front isn't something to write home about. But the secret garden out back is one of the best places in town to grab a pint. The bar serves a litany of cocktails and a...
809 Rue Ontario E, Montréal, QC H2L 1P1, Canada
Le Cheval Blanc is a beloved Montreal brewery that was doing craft before craft was cool. In 1986 this was licensed as Montreal's first brewpub. LCB pulls double duty as a busy diner in one of the city's liveliest neighborhoods, so it's worth...
2047 Avenue du Mont-Royal E, Montréal, QC H2H 1J7, Canada
Few things make me happier than a good cocktail with friends after a long, hot day. Especially when said cocktail is inventive, delicious, and massive in size. La Distillerie, with four locations throughout Montreal (my favorite being on Mont...
214 Rue Bernard O, Montréal, QC H2T 2K4, Canada
A cozy, intimate vegan restaurant right across the street from Montreal's best indie bookshop. A great place to sit down for a bite and thumb through your new book, if you ask me. The menu has a number of exciting options, though I was quite...
29 Laurier Avenue, Montréal, QC H2T 2N2, Canada
I never pass up an opportunity to sample fresh concoctions at my favorite Montreal brewpub. The atmosphere is lively, the servers extremely knowledgeable, and the snackables extraordinary. I'm a huge fan of Peche Mortel (Imperial Coffee Stout),...
7070 Avenue Henri-Julien, Montréal, QC H2S 3S3, Canada
138 Avenue Atwater, Montréal, QC H4C 2H6, Canada
The whole province of Quebec takes its agriculture very seriously, and consequently you can find some incredibly fresh, tasty products. The vendors at Atwater Market are passionate about what they sell, and they are more than happy to talk all...
301 Rue Émery, Montréal, QC H2X 1J2, Canada
I came upon this quirky cafe while trying to find a nearby brewery. Coffee doesn't often distract me when I'm in the mood for a pint, I can tell you that. The barista (is that the right term?) on hand knew an awful lot about Joe, and convinced me...
5587 Av du Parc, Montréal, QC H2V 4S8, Canada
I met Arianna Garcia-Fialdini in Montreal during the last day of her exhibition at the Espace Pop Alternative Gallery. I found her work stark, detailed, and captivating, and I spent more time than I thought I would wandering from mural to mural...
1100 Rue de la Montagne, Montréal, QC H3G 0A1, Canada
Parisian Brasserie dining, and a few hundred bottles of good wine standing sentinel for good measure. It didn't take me long to get used to afternoons and evening at La Coupole. I had an equally delightful time at breakfast; a bit of yogurt and...
1658 Rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2X 3K6, Canada
The Latin Quarter branch of this popular brewpub is a fab place for a bowl of delicious poutine and a few pints on a Friday night. I've met plenty of local folk and visitors while chest-deep in cheese curd heaven, and I've always had a good time....
