Welcome to chic little city!
While I've always adored traveling, I've loathed being a tourist. There is something so daunting about exploring a new and unfamiliar place, Frommer's in hand, with the prayer that you'll stumble upon that little gem of a restaurant you had envisioned in your mind. I know that on occasion (or two, or three, or lets not think about it...) I've ended up frustrated, ravenous and prepared to settle for "the next restaurant we see" amidst what appears to be a sea of tourist traps and too many menu-with-pictures-of-the-food-on-it places to count.
I created this site for people like me who don't always have a knowledgeable local for a friend (or a very talented concierge) to guide them through a city. While there are plenty of excellent review sites out there, this one is dedicated to modern women (and men!) who are looking for an edited list of some of the best shops, restaurants, hotels and galleries that Montreal has to offer.
If you are visiting, new to the city, or a busy Montreal native who wants to see what else is out there, I'm hoping you'll find this site useful.
Thanks for visiting and hope to see you back sometime soon!
