Montreal 2018: Road Trip Wrap-up

Our latest excursion to Montreal was a belated birthday get-away for Sarah. Her only request was to surprise her. *gulp* No pressure from her, but plenty from myself. I did my best to keep my plans from her, but I decided to let her know about at least one of the places, a new-to-us knitting store.

If you have read posts of previous visits to Montreal you know that we have a few places we visit often. For example, we always stay at the Hôtel Château de L’ Argoat, and the hotel’s proximity to Cheval Blanc means we inevitably have a few beers there. Réservoir Instagram link is another brew pub we always seem to end up. However, other than these three places all of the spots listed below are new to us. And it looks like my months of planning paid off as we had a wonderful 48-hour adventure in one of our favorite cities. Please read on for a detailed report, and watch the video for more.

She is also friends with the chef, and highly recommended the place, so we were excited. And we weren’t disappointed. Our dining experience was excellent, and they even brought us a slice of tiramisu with a candle on it.

This dish was inspired by one of the dishes we had that night. That dish was not a schnitzel because it wasn’t pounded to 1/4-inch thick; and Chef Evan served his with a delicious mushroom sauce.
