Why You Need To Go: This gourmet tavern is hosting your favourite meal (brunch... what else?) while playing your favourite R&B jams of the '80s. Think of tunes by Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson and Stevie Wonder setting the mood as you sip your mimosa and eat your eggs.

Why You Need To Go: There's an IRL activity based on Netflix's Squid Game (minus the blood, gore and death) happening in Montreal this weekend — and you can even win a cash prize. There's still room for the morning of October 24. You can book your spot on the website.
Bonyard, which calls itself "King of the Bowls," is a Sud-Ouest restaurant specializing in street-food-inspired bowls and wraps. Their menu items are piled high AF with delicious ingredients like jerk chicken and duck confit or root vegetables as a vegetarian alternative.
The mac 'n' cheese bowls come in three decadent varieties, classic, French and O.G., all of which feature a drool-worthy combination of house-made sauce, extra-old cheddar, gruyere and goat cheese.
A spokesperson told MTL Blog that Bonyard's freebie giveaway will be the O.G., which has Asian barbecue ribs, roasted corn, crispy jalapeno, and gremolata mixed in.
So why is Bonyard giving away free stuff? To celebrate Halloween with an event called "Halloween in Ghost-Town." In order to participate, just head on over this Sunday between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.
In addition to the mac 'n' cheese and hot chocolate, Bonyard says there will be other delicious treats (but it promises no tricks).

It's basically a culinary trip when you open the doors of Mici D'ici!
This new Romanian spot just opened back in August 2021. The restaurant's name "Mici" comes from the name of a Romanian sausage made with "minced meat, delicately spiced, cooked to perfection on the grill."
MTL Blog asked the owners to tell us a little bit about Mici D'ici to which they said, "We sell Mici, a Romanian sausage also called Mititei. We put it in sandwiches and on poutine."
The menu includes items like Naked Mici, the Mici Sandwich, the Chiftele Slider and the Sausage Lollipop.
A recently added menu item has also been popular amongst customers — the Double Cannon: a burger with two Micis in it, a slightly spicy sauce, sauerkraut and fried onions.
Wondering what to get when you go? The owners said their best sellers are the Mici Slider, the Mici Sandwich and the Truffle Salt Fries — in case that helps narrow down your decision. They also were proud to mention that they "have received the accreditation of Aliments du Québec au Menu because the majority of [their] ingredients come from here, hence the name Mici D'ici."
If all of this sounds delicious to you, head on over to Mici D'ici on rue Mont-Royal to test the menu out. Just note that it's closed on Mondays.
