Howdy!

Only three made it to the “Done and worth going back” side of the page. Cirkus, Ma’tine, and Notkins Oyster Bar. Surprisingly seven did not make it. Then finally there were two that I was undecided about and left on the to try (again) side.

Four establishments made it to the “Done and worth going back” side of the page. (Actually three, with one making it to the Good Places to Drink list.) Pizzeria Gema, Nouilles de Lan Zhou, Le North End and Le Slang. Only four did not make it, two of them because they closed before I got to try their food.

It’s been a slow month. Only one restaurant made it to the “Done and worth going back” side of the page. Jacquie & France. I’ll leave it to you to discover the eight that did not.

To repeat myself quoting Sly Stone, “Heard Ya Missed Me, Well I’m Back.

It’s been a while since I released a new list of Montreal Restaurants. Apologies

For those of you that are interested the previous versions of the list have been downloaded more than 11,000 times since 2012.

The changes since the previous one: Beaufort Café, Chez Bouffe, Ellada, Impasto, Cafe Milano, Pizza Nino, Café Renan, Le Serpent and Tripolis made the move to the Done and Worth Going Back side.

Montreal Design Flaws

Howdy!

Recently they finally finished the renovations at Place des Arts. I will refrain from commenting on them, as there are only 49 synonyms in my thesaurus for the word bad, and none of them sufficiently evoke my feelings about what was done. However, one thing that did strike me, was how there is one glaring design flaw that was encountered in the renovations.

Namely, whomever decided it was an awesome idea to install floor to ceiling video screens in a dark corridor where very frequently there are massive hordes of people, forgot that it was likely that some of those people would in fact bush up against and or decide to try and touch those (probably) extremely expensive screens.

So, an after-the-fact-cheap-o-no-thought solution was instituted. As you can see, above, they installed some rope at ankle height. Kind of like what you would see in a museum with not enough security staff. Or in plainer language: bush league.

Pity.
