Montreal’s Hidden Treasures: Dominion Square Tavern

30 Apr

I recently had the chance to visit Dominion Square Tavern, a little place hidden on Metcalfe Street, in Downtown Montreal. The ambiance is quite pleasant and the decor oozes old world charm (you’d think you were transported back to the Roaring Twenties). The drinks and cocktails are fantastic and crafted with homemade tonic. The restaurant offers bistro-style dishes with an accessible French Canadian palate and the cuisine is also notably infused with a British sensibility. If you are visiting Montreal, this is a must-see.

Cookies Unite!

1 Mar

Cookies Unite is an event held every month at the Nouveau Palais restaurant. It’s organized by chef Gita Seaton and the goal is to showcase young cooking talent. It gives line cooks an opportunity to create and cook a menu of their own and get some recognition. On Monday March 5th, 2012, Kate & Julio will be taking over the kitchen, so if you have no plans, why not reserve your place at the Nouveau Palais and support some local talent.
