With the upcoming Spring season, La Société Montreal French Bistro located in Loews Hotel Vogue welcomes you with a new brunch menu elaborated by Parisian Chef Gilles Tolen who made his debut at well-known establishment Café de la Paix in 2009.

For those who are familiar with Montreal foodie scene, Chef Gilles Tolen created two menus at Decca77 as Executive Chef and was also involved in culinary events such as Le Chop, Cuisine du Quebec and MTLàTable.

The new brunch menu offers revisited classics such as Eggs Benedict, various types of Omelet, Mimosa cocktails and more. Moreover, the menu allows you to plunge into La Société spirit with fresh Oysters, Champagne, Tartars with croûtons and lunch plates.

I particularly appreciate the fact that the menu offers healthy and varied choices. Even as a vegetarian, you will easily find something that fit your need without having to ask for special treatment. With my sweet tooth, I chose the Belgian waffles (maple syrup comes in supplement), the Mount Royal granola bowl (proud Montrealer) and the Moulin Rouge cocktail ( Paris is always on my mind).

Barbie Haute Couture Exhibit at Les Cours Mont-Royal

Yesterday evening, we have celebrated the launch of The Barbie Expo at Les Cours Mont-Royal.

Expo Barbie

For the first time in Montreal, a permanent exhibit dedicated to Barbie will be open to the public starting February 11th during regular business hours seven days a week. There are many kinds of Barbies from all over the world embodying roles of queens, movie stars, iconic figures, modern women, teenagers, etc.

To celebrate fashion Haute Couture, some of them are dressed by famous designers such as Givenchy, Oscar de la Renta, Christian Louboutin and many more.

As you are maybe aware, the dolls have come under many critics over the past years for promoting a dream body image and for a lack of diversity. The company Mattel has recently announced the launching of new Barbies who are curvier, shorter, taller and skin coloured.

As a preview, here are a selection of pictures from instagram taken during the lauching event:

Soirée Sneak & Chic au Pandore

Le restaurant cocktail-bar Pandore du Quartier des spectacles vous convie tous les vendredi au cœur de son cadre raffiné pour les soirées Sneak & Chic. C’est avec beaucoup d’enthousiasme que nous avons répondu présentes le vendredi 23 octobre dernier.

PANDORE

Pour se plonger dans l’ambiance, on débute la soirée avec une coupe de champagne ou un cocktail préparé sur mesure par le (ou la charmante) barmaid.

Pandore bar restaurant

Par la suite, on se délecte les papilles grâce au menu gastronomique mis au point par le chef Louis Roy-Potvin et le chef pâtissier Éric Champagne. Que vous soyez carnivore ou végétarien, la séléction variée de plat mettra tout le monde d’accord!

Pandore menu

Ce soir là, nous avons été accompagnées par la chanteuse Briia en fond de musique live durant le repas et lorsque le Dj a repris les commandes des platines, il était temps de faire place à la danse pour célébrer le début du week-end.

Les soirées Sneak & Chic sont sans aucun doute un concept gagnant à l’approche de l’hiver montréalais et nous vous invitons à venir les découvrir sans plus tarder.
