I think for most americans too, Shwartz's won't be that big of a deal; American delis are a 'cut above' *fart sounds* canadian ones.

la banquise is always good but it's seem really 'par for the course' these days. Pattita Pattata is good if you're in that area. if you want to get really outstanding poutine, and have some great beer BrouHaha is a winner http://brouepubbrouhaha.com/

Oh, and as far as concerts are concerned, http://justshows.com/montreal/ is a pretty good listing.

Kem CoBa.

Because we're all ice cream-eating motherfuckers.

I second Kem CoBa. Pair it with Ripples if you want a traditional-innovative ice cream double punch. It's also right next to Dieu du Ciel, which has already been recommended (and rightfully so).

I trust you filled those couple hours with something savory in the end?

So far, smoked meat and fries at Le Main, bunch of stuff at GUS, trotter, pork belly mortadella, boudin-foie-gras tart and foie-gras poutine at Au Pied du Cochon. Will maybe get into poutine at Patati Patata tomorrow, maybe I'm done for the trip though. Fuckin' Au Pied nearly killed me.

If you don't want to eat poutine again, try Lawrence (excellent Britishish food), or Nora Gray (njuda agnolotti). I would add La Salle a Manger, because their veal tataki was the best thing I ate in two and a half weeks in Montreal, but looks like it isn't on the menu. If you crave something heavy and simple, the liver sausage sandwich from the Lawrence's butchershop next door is totally rad.

I enjoyed every meal I had in Montreal, but I found some dishes, and some aspects of the service, at both APDC and Joe Beef over-the-top and silly.

However, I can't get behind FM four_oclocker_2's foieless APDC poutine suggestion. Without it, it'd be ordinary. With it, it's an amazing dish. It's decadence piled upon decadence, but the components are just different enough that somehow it's balanced and really fun to eat.

Wait! The ApdC Poutine (foieless) is not the same dish as the Foie Gras Poutine, sans FG.

Their reg pout is as good as any in the city. The ordinary done properly. Frites, curds, sauce. You just cannot simply walk into any old poutine place in Montreal and a get a first class regular poutine (anymore). For this it is worth mentioning.

There will be some dick out there complaining that the "oh, cheese crottes are too big", but fuck that guy.

Oh. How is it different from the FGP sans FG?

FGP's sauce is enriched with cream, egg yolks and FG. And you get a pissy sprinkling of frites rather than a big bowl of them.

Dieu du Ciel should be every beer drinker's home base in Montreal, if you enjoy drinking and do not make a day of sitting and having every beer on the menu, you are fucking up royally. Every single one will be the best version of that style that could ever be conceived, then you'll hit the fucked up lumberjack one that tastes like sardines and cigar sausage water. It's a thing, that place.

That is me, head down, at the end of the meal, completely beaten the a pulp by it, trying to come to grips with what just happened to me.
You actually feel like you've been worked over by a more powerful thing than yourself leaving a full meal there, just held down, steamrolled over and discarded, and it's AWESOME.

Love that God damn restaurant.

Can anyone tell me how possible it is to move from the States to Quebec? I'm losing my mind here in Columbus, and I need to get the fuck out of here.

The company I work for was sold today and the company that bought us has a large office in Montreal.

I don't speak French, and I'm assuming that would be a problem. However, the company that is absorbing us is an American company, so I assume the language thing may not be too big of an issue as it would with company that does it's business primarily with other offices in Quebec. I am 100% willing to take classes, do Rosetta Stone, fucking whatever I have to.

Then there's the whole me being a non-Canadian thing. Which would have been a whole lot easier if the whole marriage thing panned out with Canadian ex. :|

I have to wait until the buyout is complete and we're completely absorbed to get a better idea from someone within the company, but I was just throwing this out there in case anyone has done this, or know someone who has.

Even if it doesn't work out with this company, there's a ton of aerospace jobs in Montreal, which happens to be the industry I work in.

Went so many times when the girlfriend and I went up a few months ago. I brought back some Moralite which customs kindly took a bottle of their own. Really wish their stuff was easier to get.

Joe Beef (at a reasonable hour) is booked yo! Sorry, it's a work night [/lame]. Thinking Maison Publique as a Plan B. Cool? We've been before. Wonderful spot...

Any good shows or events going on Dec. 26-Jan 1? Specifically New Years Eve?

Also, good vegan restaurants in Montreal? Give me some. I'm bringing a vegan with me.
