Ma’ tine Brunch Montreal

ma tine brunch montreal interior bar

Ma’tine is a new discovery on the brunch scene, located in the gay village. We were excited to check out this new brunch spot that brings some brunch muscle outside of the usual Plateau and Mile End areas. Early buzz on Ma’tine was that it was a fresh new take on brunch, with the original team that made Micro Resto la Famille one of our favourite spots. The Daniel-Six brothers (Jérémy and Maxime) have been making waves everywhere they go and all you need to do is try their food and you will understand why.

La Recolte Brunch

la recolte montreal brunch interior

Eating healthy can sometimes be a complicated headache inducing mess, with so many options, ingredients, cooking styles, allergies, and views on what is deemed healthy, we often get lost in what healthy really is. Most recently the emphasis has focused on local, organic and responsible food. Supporting local farms, sourcing organic food produce and making responsible choices in what items used has many people talking and looking for places that do this. Many Montreal restaurants are doing this in some part with sourcing local produce, focusing on organic produce instead of some that may be genetically modified and even going as far as using certain fish so as to not contribute to overfishing. Food has an ethical component and having grown up in a family that focused on organic and healthy, this is something that is always in the back of my mind every time I take a bite. The tricky part is finding a spot that sources local organic food items and encourages eco responsibility. You have to go with word of mouth since there is no overarching organization that clearly hands out certification and you can do your research and see if the place you are eating at meets your criteria.

Tripes and Caviar Verdun Brunch

So a little back story: a little over a year ago, I was in a bar in Tokyo having drinks and overheard someone talking with a distinct Quebec accent. It turns out that that accent belonged to a Montrealer doing a pilgrimage to various bars and restaurants in Japan. When we got to talking of favourite places and he mentioned how he knew the people over at Tripes and Caviar and they were doing some creative stuff there. So, although a year later, we decided to check it out.

Bête A Pain Brunch

bete a pain montreal brunch exterior

Over on Fleury street is La Bête à Pain – a bakery with a twist and making a name for itself among foodies as having an impressive brunch. This came on my radar a while ago but since it’s in an area I don’t end up in often, it took a while before I made it up here. There aren’t too many brunch spots up on Fleury, let alone many fancy ones, but the area is changing and in a few years you may not even recognize it from how it is now. Already, signs of gentrification are beginning, so let’s see how this shapes up.

Bagatelle Bistro

Hochelaga Maisonneuve, or HOMA for short, is an interesting part of Montreal. Historically a working class neighborhood, it has recently started gentrifying. You will notice new condos popping up and many more cafes and restaurants that are not your usual greasy spoon. Although, HOMA manages to keep some of its working class flavour in its restaurants in the sense that you tend to get larger plates with decent value for what you pay. This is very welcome in a city where the $20 brunch is not that uncommon.

The 411 It’s summer and that means a trip down to New York – more specifically, Brooklyn. Brunch in Brooklyn is an adventure and we always manage to hit up unique and delicious brunches. As of recently, I have been putting down the camera while on vacation to simply enjoy brunch, but this time I just couldn’t help snapping some shots and sharing this gem.

Cabane a sucre pied de cochon apple season 2014

exterior of cabane a sucre pied de cochon apple season 2014 It’s Pied de Cochon time again- cabane a sucre apple season: the-over-the-top seasonal gastronomic extravaganza from the brain of Martin Picard and his team; and, this year does not disappoint. This time we have a twist on the apple season. Although apples are featured in the menu, we have an emphasis on vegetables as well and the bounty of the harvest that the summer has brought us. You can see it from the items in the food to the bright red colours the staff is wearing – you see that summer is upon us. Now, don’t be afraid that just because we said vegetables, there is still loads of meat and foie gras, I mean, this is Pied de Cochon, after all, so you are guaranteed to have a copious meal filled with meat and foie gras. With all things involving the creative direction of chefs and in order for things to remain fresh and up to date they will keep changing the menu. What we saw today will be what others will see this season but ingredients and items might change as we get feedback and other seasonal items become available. Remember this spans from August 15 to November 1st so we cover summer and fall. (more…)
