The Layover in Montreal


In case anyone here hasn't already seen it, it is viewable here:

Or if you prefer not to and just want to be able to nod your head knowingly about what and where they went. In order: Beauty's, St. Viateur Bagel, Club Social, Marche Jean-Talon, Marvin's, Joe Beef, Brasserie Capri, Big in Japan, and Grumman 78.

More details here

Personally, I don't understand why they went to Big in Japan and Marvin's. I never liked BiJ and Marvin's is definitely coasting these days and has been for a while (unfortunately).

  1. There's already a thread about this show on the Media board.

    1. SnackHappy is correct. We'll lock this one. Thanks!

        ha, yes, the same triumvirate of chefs and restaurants all over again.

        The scary thing is that Fred Morin looks like Stephen Harper!!! And I also dislike when they put out a big plate of food just for the sake of it (probably will be thrown in the bin).

        Me think they chose BiJ an Marvin's because they spoke english (note that they only ate that the "taverne" but not talk/chat with the owner/cook who must be more fun than the guy at Marvin's (never heard of that place before now).
