1. L'Express and Continental. Au Pied de Cochon serves up a tasty venison onglet (a.k.a. hanger steak), which frankly is pretty beef-like.
2. www.montrealsushi.com was supposed to be back up in September of last year. Then it was promised for sometime this fall. I suspect it's either not NR's priority or has proved to be a bit more than he and his co-conspiritor can comfortably chew. Since they're volunteering their time and energy, you can't really be hard on them. Yet it's not incoceivable that the constant postponment may be having a chilling effect on the development of other such sites. In any case, Montrealers have been without a comprehensive sushi bar review page for a year and a half now. Bleh. It's like Waiting for Gobèrge...
