Brunching at Maison Publique

Posted June 3, 2014 by foodguymtl

It’s Saturday morning. After a relatively tame night, in my groggy state, I’ve got one thing on my mind: where am I going to eat this late morning/early afternoon. Do I want breakfast? There’s plenty of places for good breakfast. Do I want lunch? There’s plenty of places for good lunch. Nah. I want both. […]

Oh mon Dieu! It’s Poutine Week.

Posted February 3, 2014 by François Levesque

Scrolling down my Facebook feed tonight, I landed on a titillating poutine photo featured at the Gainsbourg resto-pub in Gatineau. A bit further down the post I discovered that there’s a cross-country poutine festival going on this week! Poutine Week is taking place across multiple cities in Québec and Ontario with just under 20 restaurants [...]

Food Guy Montreal’s Best Bites of 2013

Posted January 10, 2014 by foodguymtl

2013 is in the books. I ate a lot. I found this year’s cuisine to be less formal than usual. The casual eats shined while a couple big dishes left me wanting more. A balance of flavors, textures, and aromas left lasting impressions. I was surprised at how amazing some new places were, and how […]

Hof Kelsten: Bread at its Finest

Posted December 9, 2013 by foodguymtl

Do you like bread? Who doesn’t. There’s nothing like the sound of perfect crust crackling, or the aroma emanating from the soft center. When you’re holding bread, GOOD bread, you observe, listen, smell, touch, and finally taste. When it’s done well, you know it. I’m not talking about that stuff which can probably survive a […]

Le Vin Papillon: The Wine Bar You’ve Been Looking For

Posted October 19, 2013 by foodguymtl

“I’ve got new place opening up soon.” “Where?” “Right there. I want a place where I can walk over, drink good wine, eat well, and not care about reservations.” “Sounds awesome. I’ll definitely be there.” That’s pretty much how my short conversation went with Dave McMillan a few months ago while standing in front of […]

De la rue aux étoiles 2013 – From the Street to the Stars 2013

Posted September 25, 2013 by foodguymtl

Every year, I’m unable to do it. The timing isn’t right, or generally, life gets in the way. This year, I’m in and I can’t wait! I really enjoy community events in Montreal. Oysterfest was a blast, I’ve been doing a couple cooking lessons in the Marché Saint-Anne, and participating/eating during Burger Week was fun […]

Eat Here, Eat This

Posted August 19, 2013 by foodguymtl

Summer always brings out the best in food. I’ve been enjoying the great flavours of street food, relaxing on terrasses with a cool drink in hand, and many frequent visits to Montreal’s markets. Lately, I’ve been lucky enough to feast on some really good food, which would be selfish of me if I didn’t share […]

Dinner at Barbounya: New Turkish Restaurant on Laurier

Posted July 8, 2013 by foodguymtl

It’s exciting when a new restaurant opens! There’s always some early buzz followed by, most likely, an opening dinner (like this one!), and usually afterwards, questions about how the restaurant is or was during that night. This time around, I’m talking about a new Turkish restaurant on Laurier called Barbounya. The name derives from a […]

Martin Juneau is one of Montreal’s most popular chefs. After winning The Golden Plates award in 2011 (best chef in Canada…no big deal), his profile grew and him, along with his food quickly became very well known. Soon after, he opened Pastaga Vins Nature & Restaurant. The small plate presentations and fantastic selection of natural […]
