I'm not the foodie you cats are. When I am in Montreal, I get my smoked meat at Reuben's, my ice cream at Laura Secord, my chicken at St Hubert, and pizza at Woodland in Verdun (which sadly was closed this time so I could not).

One day I will have to join y'all at fancy joints ;)

BTW, when I was in Chicago two weeks ago, in addition to a couple of trips to Chick Fil A as my son wanted to go there, we went to Giordano's for deep dish and Gibson's for steak.

I hope you went to the right Reuben's. The one on the corner of St-Catherine & Peel.

I'm back in TO after a week of gluttony.

Vin Papillon is still my gold standard. Eclectic mix of returning dishes and new seasonal offerings.

Tuck Shop was solid, but I was reminded why I hadn't been there in a few years. No standout dish that had me wanting more.

Tried a bunch of new places -- Beba in Verdun was fantastic. And I really enjoyed Helicopter by Olympic Stadium.

Le Chien Fumant was tasty. The $30 tasting menu on Tues/Wed is a steal.

La Poule Mouille came as advertised. I ordered the small Portuguese Poutine (yum) but still couldn't eat the whole thing at lunch. My ideal poutine comes to me at 1am when I'm drunk.

Larrys was perfect (again) for breakfast, coffee and any time of day snacks.

Two of my favourite spots in the city.....Joe Beef and Liverpool house are overrated, Vin Papillon is there best resto in my opinion.

In terms of good cheaper spots.....Kazu and that Dumpling place on Lincoln street downtown....
