The Food Divas have been frequenting Montreal restaurants onThursdays since 2011. Montreal is known for its French cuisine (and we love our tartare), so we tend to go to French restaurants. In some (most) circles, we are known for causing trouble, therefore, our Thursday nights are reserved for plotting, drinking (getting tipsy) and eating great food (gluttonous indulgence) with great company (an unholy alliance).
Opting to have a salad used to mean that you were on a diet, but not anymore! Today there are so many unique combinations and eating salad is now about satisfying a craving, not going on a diet. We love clean eating when it tastes good! [image creditl: iStockphoto]
Let’s face it, we’re only happy about Thanksgiving because we get a day off from work! It’s not a big holiday like our neighbours to the south but that doesn’t mean we can’t go out and celebrate with a good meal and a fun experience. Here are some fun Montreal alternatives to the traditional turkey dinner. We’re thankful that we live in Montreal with all of these amazing restaurants!
When we think of Mother’s Day we tend to think of brunch, but plenty of mothers would rather go out for dinner! These restaurants are open on Sunday nights, including Mother’s Day, and vary from French, to Italian, to Syrian, to Spanish and more. There is something for every mother and their finicky palate![image credit: iStock]
If there’s anyone who deserves to be spoiled, it’s our mothers! They take care of us all the time so it’s only fitting that we take at least one day a year and make it all about them. And there’s no better way to start than by treating mom to a fabulous brunch. Here are some restaurants around Montreal that will be serving a special Mother’s Day Brunch.[image credit: iStock]

Ramen restaurants are popping up all over Montreal, but for those less versed in this Japanese specialty, choosing the right spot can be a daunting task. There is a difference between tonkotsu, shoyu and miso broths, as well as the ramen noodles and accompanying meat. The trifecta of ramen is broth-noodles-meat; and we’ve strictly evaluated all these restaurants, highlighting their strengths. [Photo: Yokato Yokabai]

Let’s be honest, the holidays are stressful and when you have family over for a holiday, the stress level tends to increases exponentially. So instead of cooking, prepping and cleaning your house, this Easter why don’t you save yourself the trouble (and stress) and enjoy brunch at one of the many Montreal restaurants serving Easter brunch.

Ville St-Laurent is the largest of Montreal’s boroughs, and one where various cultures live together. This ethnic diversity means there are many traditional restaurants scattered around the area. Everything from traditional Italian, Greek, Indian, and even kosher and halal options all find a home in Ville St-Laurent, which means great dining options for you!

The days of Prohibition were an attempt to legislate morality and deemed alcohol as evil. With this came the birth of the speakeasy; hidden bars without signs or visible entrances where people could still enjoy their favourite cocktails. That charm and mystery continues today, and Montreal is a haven! Check out these standout speakeasies hidden away around the city.[Image credit: iStock.com/Jitalia17]
You want your first date to stand out from the rest, but that doesn’t mean it has to be expensive! It should be fun, unique and… shouldn’t be too messy. As a rule stay away from tacos, finger licking ribs, and crab legs that require you to get in there with your fingers and mouth. We would be giddy with excitement if we were taken to these fabulous first date spots in Montreal.[Image credit: iStock.com/Anna Bryukhanova]
Cocktail bars may serve wine, beer and a traditional Rum n’ Coke, but they offer so much more than that in Montreal. Some of these bars make their own tonic, bitters, Clamato and other ingredients. They all make exceptional traditional cocktails, but most of them have their own renditions of the classics, as well as some of their own mixologist’s specialities!
