Pincette, Montreal's newest lobster bar, has opened its doors on rue Saint-Paul. It features classic seafood dishes with a distinctly Montreal twist — equal parts elegant and quirky.
Here, you can enjoy both a traditional lobster roll and delightfully sacrilegious lobster poutine in a cozy-chic setting that romanticizes blue-collar coastal life with its whimsical nautical décor (look up at the lobster trap pendant lighting).
You can also order the Bloody Pincette, a caesar with a snow crab leg sticking out of it, and an ultra-gooey lobster mac n' cheese alongside more time-honoured items like the lobster roll, fish and chips, lobster bisque and linguini with clams.
If you want to watch these 10,000-pound beasts go HAM with their 1,500-horsepower engines, then Monster Spectacular 2022 is the place to do it.
According to evenko, the event promoter, 12 of the world's best monster trucks will be competing on an all-new track. The event features side-by-side races, freestyle motocross, ATV & SXS races, and a backflip contest.
The event was initially set to take place on November 13, but it has been postponed until April 9 due to public health restrictions.
If you already have a ticket, hold onto it because it'll still be valid. If you don't, a spokesperson told MTL Blog there are still more tickets available.
Doors open at 5 p.m. for a pit party where you can meet the drivers and get photos with the monster trucks.
Montreal has a new wine bar to add to its already stacked list of drinkeries. Brouillon — third-wave café by day, bar by night — has opened in front of marketing agency TUX at Plaza Saint-Hubert with a natural wine menu, shareable dishes and food from local épicerie Chez Conserva, and a 40-seat terrasse right on the plaza, according to a press release shared with MTL Blog.
Described as "warm and eclectic" with "a touch of Berlin," the bar features wood, chrome, brass and leather details, a linoleum floor "reminiscent of old schools," and a raw wood ceiling with a giant glowing Japanese lamp hanging from its centre.
In addition to a menu of over 50 wines, Brouillon serves beer, cider and kombucha on tap, as well as a selection of cocktails.
Croissant shop Hazukido has opened its first Montreal location, serving up mouth-watering flakey rolls in 15 different styles and flavours.
Among them, croissants stuffed with salted egg yolk, raspberry panna cotta, and "mochi and oolong tea flavored custard."
But the crab-studded croissant is particularly tantalizing. It's topped with parmesan and a truffle cream sauce. There's also a cod egg croissant whose flavour is described as sweet and fresh "with a hint of spiciness."
A butter garlic croissant and cheese croissant round out the savoury options.
Those who prefer their treats sweet will also find classic honeycomb, hazelnut chocolate, caramel almond, caramel pudding, custard and lemon-glazed croissants.
Hazukido is open at 1629, rue Sainte-Catherine O.

But, in addition to being a glamorous hot spot, Fish Bone also has a creative menu full of delicious seafood items served in unique and unexpected ways. The quartet of four tartare cones — one lobster, one hamachi, one salmon and one tuna — is just one of them.
Another example is the salmon tartare with truffle oil and avocado, which is served atop a coconut shell.
The Maldives Salad is a heaping pile of colour and texture including cabbage, crispy wontons, edamame, tofu, shishito peppers and "sweet angel moon" dressing.
Order the ahi tuna burger and you'll get your tuna with crispy seaweed, avocado, cucumber, jalapeno, and tosazu dressing on a fried Chinese bun that looks an awful lot like a hamburger bun. You'll also get a side of french fries.
If you're a true seafood lover then you are undoubtedly drooling right now — especially if you have a thing for raw bars — so here's the information you've been waiting for: Fish Bone is open Tuesday to Sunday from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.
