Montreal- an unexpected foodie city !

Standard

Loved all the places we ate our way though !
Friday night – Foxy. Super grill food , just deliciousness !

Saturday brunch at Olive + gourmando. We waited for 30 mins – it was so worth the wait !! Owned by the same people that own Foxy. I had a summer salad with pumpkin seeds , quinoa , cauliflower , chicken.
DH had eggs. We both had spritz. Yummy.

Dinner was at Le Mousso. An 11 course tasting menu ! Heavenly. We did the wine pairing to go along with it. Every dish was creative , well done , superbly thought out.

Sunday brunch , our last meal was at Lawrence. Loved the food , scene , vibe and the chilled out neighborhood. I ate the eggplant on a flatbread with egg. So ,so good.

I need to come back to try all the other restaurants this city has to offer. Till next time Montreal- you were fun to visit !

I left NYC on 12/2 to visit China, Hong Kong and India. One of my longest work trips, but it has been productive. I have had the pleasure of eating at some super amazing places and I highly recommend the below in Hong Kong.

Sevva- in central – amazing views and what delicious international cuisine.
A must , even though it’s not new anymore.!

Cafe grey deluxe- At the Upper house. Fantastic views and delicious food. Super new and popular. At pacific place.

Enomod- social dining off Hollywood road- casual , relaxed , tapas style. Budget friendly.

22 Ships-no reservation place in Wanchai- great innovative , tapas style food. We had a 1 hour wait but enjoyed drinking our wine on the street !!

Lauro- A new addition to the West Village

Standard

Dinner last night was at “LAURO”. A new joint in the West Village ( our favorite part of NYC).

Even though our 2nd baby is only 3 weeks old, we decided a night out was in order and my parents are visiting from India too, another reason to go out.

Read about this in Urban Daddy, the reviews sounded good, so decided to give this a shot.

The menu was a mix of different kind of cuisines- the bread was served with Portuguese butter- herbs and butter infused, with pepper. Delicious!

Atera- 77 Worth St- 2 michelin stars

Atera- 77 Worth St- 2 michelin stars

It was DH b’ day today. I read about Atera in some magazine and decided to book it, since we both like innovative, gastronomic , experimental cooking. Thanks to A/ex concierge, I made the request for a table in July and promptly, in Aug ( since the restaurant only takes tables 2 months out), they got us a table for tonight, 9.30 PM. It was such a fantastic experience! Before the meal even started off, there were so many SNACKS!! ( 7 to be precise) , 10 main courses, then , 5 desserts and 2 petit fours.

Since I can’t drink currently, still managed to convince hubby to get the wine parings- which he’s glad he did, as he really did enjoy it and Scott Cameron is such a super talented sommelier.

Chef Matt, was very much around, working the kitchen and presenting the dishes to the guests. He was very friendly and open to chatting about the inspiration behind his food.

They only offer dinner service, this restaurant is best if done in a group of 4 (there is just 1 table for that), or a couples outing.

It was one of my favorite meals that I have ever had- and I highly recommend it to everyone to go. They are in the process of re-creating their menu and I can’t wait to go back in a few months, to see what the new menu tastes like.

It was worth every penny spent, and it was a really fun and enjoyable evening.

Like I told hubby- he may buy better presents for me, but when it comes to his b’day dinners- I totally rock !! ( Park Avenue Autumn, Au Passage Paris, Atera just to name a few).
