Situated in the heart of the Quartier Latin, Le Molière par Mousso has opened at 1560, St-Denis Street, at the corner of de Maisonneuve boulevard. This new elegant, affordable, gourmet French brasserie will provide direct access to the Espace St-Denis complex so guests won’t have to set foot outside before or after a show! Owner, Jean Pilote, the man behind the rebirth of the Capitole de Québec and the success of its venue, in partnership with Nicolas and A5 Hospitality, has unveiled the all-star team of this new Parisian brasserie style restaurant. Hopefully I will get to check it out down the line.

Online Grocery Delivery: Panier Québécois is an online grocery delivery service that doesn’t require any memberships or commitments. You can buy pre-made baskets, select the products of your choice or do a mix of both. They deliver every Monday, Wednesday and Friday and you can choose their afternoon delivery between 1:30pm and 6:30pm or evenings between 5 pm and 9:30pm. Pickup is free at their Jean Talon Market warehouse. The company is a sustainable consumption alternative allowing you to receive diversified and fresh produce  all year round. All products are secured from Quebec growers and merchants. I recently got a nice basket dropped off at my office, containing some Montreal mushroom poutine sauce, hazelnut and dark chocolate spread, apple pie spread, barbeque sauce, a hot pepper artisanal sauce and a bean-to-bar chocolate bar. The service is available in most of Montreal and Laval. Log on to

Sugar Shack: Most sugar shacks are located far outside the city, so why not stop by an urban one offering the perfect blend of tradition and new gastronomy? That’s exactly what you’ll find at Marché Artisans at 900 Rene Levesque Blvd. Ouest through April 10—a classic sugar shack brunch, revisited in a gastronomic way. Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 pm – first come, first served! – food lovers can enjoy a delicious meal with friends and family. Dishes will feature a variety of local products and maple treats from the family-owned Virgin Mady maple grove, which produces organic syrup while staying committed environmentally sustainable practices. The $45 menu has something for everyone – homemade cassoulet, soft-boiled eggs with truffle oil, pea soup with country bread, multicoloured carrots and root vegetables roasted in maple syrup, and pork rinds served with fresh tomato-smoked ketchup. A full vegetarian menu, as well as a kids’ menu, will also be available. Be sure to save room for the dessert tray and our famous maple taffy station! No need to drive far outside downtown Montreal to enjoy this year’s maple season! Info:
