Read about Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4, Day 5, and Day 6 of our week long trip to Montreal back in August 2014.
After we ate our late breakfast, we hung around the room for a bit before heading off to eat a late lunch/early dinner at our next destination.
3895 Boul St-Laurent, Montreal, QC H2W 1X9
Taken from the site: "World famous Schwartz's, serving the best smoked meat from the original recipe of spices since 1928. Imagine walking through the door and taking a step back 80 years into 'Main Street' history in Montreal. A 'true' Montreal landmark that has welcomed celebrities and visitors from all over the world. Schwartz's was founded in 1928 by Reuben Schwartz's, a Jewish immigrant from Romania, and our restaurant has been in the same location ever since, on boulevard Saint-Laurent, where it now is tucked in around funky storefronts and trendy boutiques. The restaurant is single white-tiled room containing several rows of narrow tables. Come and enjoy a unique experience.
We've protected our tradition for over 80 years by maintaining the standards of old. Unlike other smoked-meat purveyors, who add chemicals to their briskets, Schwartz's prepares smoked meat the old-fashioned way using a secret blend of fine herbs and spices marinated for 10 days. Our smoked meat is smoked daily and contains no preservatives; just the award winning taste and freshness that have brought celebrities from all around the world to our tables."
There's always a line outside of the world famous Schwartz's Deli, a Hebrew Delicatessen, even on a rainy day. We waited for maybe 15 minutes before we got in.
Service was good, same as what you would expect at any diner. Atmosphere was a little chaotic, busy, and crowded though.
Overall: Ambience C, Food A+, Service A-, Price A+.
Juliette & Chocolat
3600 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2X 2V4
Taken from the site: "Juliette & Chocolat is a unique concept: a dessert restaurant dedicated to chocolate. Our six restaurants offer table service or service to go, as well as a Gift Boutique to bring home our chocolate treats."
Next stop, Juliette & Chocolat. By the time we arrived, it was midday, so it felt right for something sweet since we were still pretty content with our meal at Schwartz's (we started the day late).
Overall: Ambience A+, Food A+, Service B-, Price B.
Anyway, I hope my fellow Canadians have a Happy Thanksgiving spending time with family, friends and loved ones. I'll be spending it with my family cooking up some food and eating it. The Mister couldn't join us as he had to work unfortunately. Catch you in my next post!
p.s. FYI, I mixed up Day 6 &7. The day's activities are the same but they're categorized under the wrong day lol. That's what I get for leaving these posts for so long I guess. Bound to be a major mistake somewhere (oops!).
