date night in montréal

flank steak
salmon with dill (cooked at a low temperature for a loooong time)
fried cheese
carrot cake
brasserie t! in montréal was yet another nytimes 36 hours in ____ treasure.

it's pretty obvious ben and i love food and we do our best to try the yummiest (for both taste and price) restaurants when we visit new places or just around dc, where we live.

i loved the restaurant and how it was shaped. long and skinny.
i loved our server. i loved the way she spoke.
i loved that we got pretty much the last seats in the restaurant.
i loved feeling like i was caught in a french-american daydream.
i loved double-date night with shayna and eric. internationally, of course.

Can't believe Eric and I went on a double date with another couple. We just don't do that very often (if ever). Remember how we all just sat at the bar and stared at our server?

Don and I spent 10 days in Montreal several years ago. Even the hostels there are just magnificent. Shopping and restaurants are even better. So cool that you went to Canada. I miss it so very much...needing a trip home in a HUGE way! xo

Oh, how fun! You guys were in Montreal!! Ahhh this makes me think of home. I'm from Orleans (ontario) which is approx 1 hour and 20 minutes from Montreal. This makes me miss home a little. We used to spend most of our weekends in Montreal. I hope you had a great weekend:) And thank you for your kind words
