[MTL] A Boutique Café – Le Butterblume

Le Butterblume, locating on the main, is a restaurant, a cafe, as well as a boutique. This hybrid cafe is started by a team of the Pâtisserie Rhubarbe and Olive et Gourmando alum, which is at the border of Mile End and Little Italy. Not only the owners, Julie Romano and Nadine Boudreau, have strong restaurant résumés, so does the chef, Jens Ruoff. After my first visit, it has become one of my favorite weekday and weekend brunch spots!

[MTL] Greek to its Finest – Milos

Milos, located in the heart of mile end (in between Ave. St-Viateur and Ave. Fairmount W. on Ave. du Parc), and it has been in Montreal's culinary scene for more than 30 years. Moreover, it is the one and only restaurant that my mom asks to visit over and over again when she's in Montreal. Don't get scared by the $$$$ when you see it on restaurant review websites, because their lunch deal is definitely a steal!

[MTL] The Classic – L’Express

L'Express, a French classic locating on rue St-Denis, has been in Montreal's food scene since 1980, and still standing strong. I've heard and read a lot of reviews about it since Freshmen year, and finally had the chance to visit with my parents! On a rainy night, I made the reservation very last minute, and was glad that they still have tables available at our preferred time!  We were greeted warmly by the staffs, who are all dressed in black and white, as soon as we walked in. The food and service were impeccable. It's one of the restaurants that my mom asked, "why didn't you bring us here when your brother was here last time?"
