Montreal: Restaurants Data Sheet

Montreal: Restaurants Data Sheet

Now before I went to Montreal for the summer, I checked the Internet for any decent Data Sheets on restaurants there. There is some ok info on the Internet, but nothing really comprehensive. So I decided to put together the dopest Data Sheet on Montreal restaurants on the Internet, For The People, of course.

Keep in mind, I would have paid someone 30k for this info before I went, so more than anything, I am happy to put this together for myself before I go next time. Hell, I just saved myself 30k.

L’Atelier d’Argentine – This place is a legit Argentinian restaurant in the Old Port. Great on a Thursday night. Plenty of action, two bars and fly girls.

Juni – Real dope sushi joint. I had this place on lock down. Juni is cool as hell. Good to package with a cocktail at Baldwin or with Lemeac. One of my favorite hoods to go out in. Better for a date or Dolo than for swooping.

Le Filet – Hands down the best restaurant I ate in Montreal. And this is no small feat. Actually, I would say the best restaurant I ate in 2012. I ate here three times in a row when I first ate here. The chef is a Japanese cat, but he runs it like a French kitchen. The seafood and cooked oysters are mindboggling. I even took my parents here. I had the entire place on lock down. I probably could have shanked someone in the middle of the packed restaurant and still gotten away with it; that is how locked down I had it. I also love that you can make reservations at the bar, which is something pretty unique to Montreal.

Tokyo Sushi – Not bad for take out. Not great like Juni, but does the trick in a pinch. People are cool as hell here too. In Old Port.

Le Club Chasse Et Peche – This is the other restaurant owned by the people from Le Filet in Old Port. Real good. Not as good as Le Filet though. And a little more expensive if my memory serves me correct.

Dunn’s – Good late night grinds. Smoked meat will set you straight after a night downtown or waiting for an Exotic Dancer to get off work.

Garde Manger – In Old Port across from Santos. This place gets real high marks, and has some girls, but I don’t really feel it.

Mai Xiang Yuan – Epic dumplings in Chinatown. Cheaper than Qing Hua Ravioli Chinois but not as many options.

Qing Hua Ravioli Chinois – Also epic dumplings in Chinatown. More expensive but more options than Mai Xiang Yuan. The sea urchin (Uni) dumplings are off the cord. So are the pork with coriander.

Olive et Gourmando – Good lunch grind in Old Port. The place is popular though and packed with tourists and locals alike.

Pintxo – Unreal Spanish joint in Montreal. This place is on par with some of the best restaurants I have eaten in Spain, which in and of itself is mindblowing. It is in a little old house type building which is cool, but kind of sucks because the bar is small. Gets real busy so get resos. You can also get resos at the bar. I love this joint. Took my parents here also. Probably my 2nd favorite next to Le Filet. The Cola de langosta a la parilla is insane. So is the Foie gras a la plancha, Terrina de foie gras con su cebolla confitada and Higo relleno de jamón serrano y queso mahon. In fact, I just had a girl text me a picture from the place and we ate there together 6 months ago.

Holder – Real solid French bistro in Old Port. Real functional, good bar, some fly girls. A staple you can count on.

Moishes – Somehow I never made it to this old-school steakhouse. I know I would have loved it though. On The Main.

Toque – This was one of the best restaurants I ate at in 2011. But in four months in Montreal, I never stepped back in. And I lived super close to it too. Don’t ask me why. It remains a mystery to me. And I don’t mean that guy with fuzzy hats and black nail polish, either.

Au Pied du Cochon – Foie gras go off to the brain. Nuff said.

Le Locale – I love this place. I used it as the base of my operations at the beginning of the summer. Great crew that works here. Great food although it’s no Pixtos or Le Filet. Swooped mad girls out of here on dates. Package with Hambar.

Maestro SVP – Cool oyster joint on Saint Laurent. The girls who work here are real sweethearts and they gave me great intel on Montreal. It was almost empty when I went. Which is strange, because the place is pretty dope.

Roasalie – I never really ate here, just partied here. I heard the food and the pizza is good though.

Boris Bistro – Good brunch spot to eat with a girl post-swoop. Get’s busy at lunch too, but I never went during lunch.

Merchant Boef – Flashy place in Old Port. Good food, good energy and some fly girls at times. Not a bad spot. A little over priced. Kind of a touristy crowd as well.

Joe Beef – I am kind of embarrassed to say I never ate here. I think I was just too afraid of the KO punch for going out later. I will hit this spot up like an Everlast punching bag next time for shez.

L’Assommoir – Good duck tartare. Cool atmosphere. But they play some really wack tracks sometimes. One time, I heard some track, could have been “Moves like Jagoff” by Buffoon 5 (not sure, I blocked it out), and I had to leave before I could order my drink.

Restaurant Ora – Never went here. On my list.

Accords – Somehow never went here either. Heard good things.

Lemeac – This place is dope as all hell. A fly French Moroccan girl turned me on to this place, and in turn, I have turned many fly girls on to it. Met a fly Model girl smoking on the outers also. So the place is mad fly all around. They serve late too.

Bice – High priced but pretty dope. I defeated George St. Pierre here.

Buonanotte – Never ate here, but I have explained the club before.

Le Chien Fumant – Super dope, low-profile hipster joint. Epic. I love this spot. Ate here with three of my droogs on a no-holds-barred go off for the ages on a Sunday night.

Le Comptoir – Love this joint. Real hipster though. But the sweetbreads are beyond mindblowing.

La Sale A Manger – Need to hit up this place more. But I liked what I saw.

Vallier – Not bad, not great. But good. In Old Port. Not worth a trip, but not bad if you are in the area and are in a pinch. I was. I like Holder more. And Le Locale way more.

Casa Galicia – Good traditional Spanish. Nowhere near Pintxo, nor does it try to be. The owner is cool as hell.

Mikado – Decent sushi. It is no Juni or Park though.

Le Pois Penché – Kind of tries to be like Balthazar in NYC, although it doesn’t compare. Met a fly waitress girl here though. I still dig the spot.

Jardin Nelson – Get’s high marks from a lot of people, but is kind of touristy. I would never eat there. Although, I would get a cocktail.

Ferreira Café – High priced downtown fare. Not bad, but overpriced. Met a fly bartender girl there, so I can’t hate.

F Bar – Carlos Ferreira’s of Ferreira Café, pop up bar on Rue Jeanne-Mance. Good during Jazz Fest.

Brasserie T! – Normand Laprise of Toque’s pop up bar on Rue Jeanne-Mance. Good during Jazz Fest. I like Brasserie T! more than F Bar in case you are wondering.

Mikasa – Never ate there but was recommended to me by a fly Russian girl. But you know how serious I take sushi recs from fly Russian girls, right?

Park – This place is legit. Antonio Park is cool as hell. Top notch sushi. Defeated a Hollywood Celeb here too. Clear cut KO. Park does all sustainable fish, so don’t look for Toro up in this piece. In Westmount.

Les 400 Coups – Dope spot.

Baxo – Never ate here, but cool spot for a cocktail. Met some fly girls here.

Bistro L’express – Now this place is right on time. Serves real late. Favorite French bistro in Montreal along with Lemeac.

Ginger – Always wanted to check this little spot right off Saint Laurent. Looks dope. I would go more for the scene than the food.

Café Melis – Place looks dope. Never stepped.

Chez Victoire – Real dope. Need to go more.

Rotisserie Romados – You want chicken for lunch? This place rips the mic cord. And I don’t even like chicken that much. Real legit. Can be a pain in the *ss line though.

Schwartz – Hell yes on this mother*cker. Long lines but the smoked meat will make you see angels. I f*cks with this joint, yo. Real old-school. An institution.

And there you have it. The dopest Data Sheet on Montreal restaurants on the entire Internet. Any questions?

Brazilian Girls, Los Angeles and Custom Suits

» 14 December 2010 » In Game, Girls, Guide, Luxury, money, Nightlife, People, Style, Wine » 21 Comments

Brazilian Girls, Los Angeles and Custom Suits

“Let your greatest cunning lie in covering up what looks like cunning”- Baltasar Gracián (Spanish Jesuit and baroque prose writer), 1601-1658

“Winning comes down to two things: Taking advantage of your opponents mistakes and perfect timing” – Michael John Mason VI (Father to son boxing advise when I was a young amateur)

This year, when I haven’t been traveling, I have been spending a bunch of time in Beverly Hills, working on some big “heists”, so to speak. So after Entering The Dragon at The Wildcard and a beautiful day at the Getty, I find myself at a Private Club in West Hollywood for dinner and drinks.

Here are the attendees at the dinner:

• Entertainment CEO, who I have never met
• Oscar nominated Producer, who I have met
• My friend in the Horse world and girlfriend
• My friend who works at big corporation putting it all together
• Some young Hollywood Actor, who I don’t know
• Hollywood stylist guy (British), who I don’t know
• Two Brazilian model girls, who came with Producer guy
• And Your humble author, AKA Your favorite International Playboy’s favorite International Playboy

It promises to be a pretty vague affair, and I have no real purpose being at the dinner, I was just invited by my friend, the corporate cat. It’s a meet and greet with a little biz on the agenda. You know, your typical Tableaux de mode turning into a Fête galante with potential to be a Bacchanale.

It should be noted that I feel slightly un-centered, possibly because of the fact that I completely out-gunned (so to speak) at this dinner, as almost everyone, save the girls, are more accomplished than I am (at least in a mainstream sense) and have longer dough. And it doesn’t exactly comfort me when I start having flashbacks of knuckle-ups “on the cobbles” with big Russian guys with bald heads and leather jackets, from a few weeks prior, either. It also should be noted that I have been increasingly been finding myself in these types of situations as I move up The Layer Cake of life.

However, I am dressed in a sick Custom Suit: jet black, peaked lapels, one-button, side vents and interior so crimson that if we were in South Central you might have thought I was Brim or Piru. Pocket Square the color of Colombian Blow.

The conversation at the table starts off cordial and loosens up as vino consumption is increased. I stay in the cut, and only add comments where necessary and when I can add value as I am well versed in many subjects these days (not bragging, just keeping it solid gold like 1oz American Eagle coins for you). Doing this keeps an air of mystery around me, and the table really starts coming around. Entertainment CEO double takes after I drop a few gems and asks me, “What is it that you do again?”

The Brazilian model girls take notice, which, of course, is not lost on me. Also, what is not lost on me is that the weesh Young Hollywood actor guys starts hating on me. Which, of course, I ignore and continue to stay in the seam.

Surprisingly, it is actually shaping up to be a great dinner; Entertainment CEO guy is running the show and is actually super cool, Oscar nominated Producer guy spins some good tales, my horse world friend and his girlfriend drop dimes, Stylist guy busts some hilarious tales that everyone loves, the Brazilian Girls are having fun and my corporate friend is gluing it all together. It is one of those rare occurrences: The whole table is gelling.

Well, maybe not Actor guy, as he is trying to “close talk” one of the Brazilian model girls (which is a weak move) but I notice her “body languageing” him away as I am busting out a story. I spit out a little Portuguese which the Brazilian Model girls love and the actor boy hates as he does not speak any.

Feeling good now, I drop some good lines:

I use the phrase, “like that guy from Wikileaks” multiple times, and even drop this one: “Oh you mean, Rahm Emanuel’s brother?” to check everyone as the discussion topics are a little too Hollywood-centric for my liking.

I also get involved in this one:

“…just got back from Latvia”, I say

“Where?”

Latvia

“Where?”

“Latvia. Kind of near Estonia”.

Since there is a lot of name dropping (albeit legitimate name dropping) going on, I comtemplate busting out my Wesley Snipes Story, but decide against it.

When Entertainment CEO guy asks me what I think of his favorite wine, I reply, “It is rich and decadent with seamless overtones of violets and homemade country jam, and it really has a Harmonious finish…” which sends the crowd wild. (Little did everyone at the table know, save my corporate friend, is that I always use that response when asked about the wine at dinners such as these.)

Hollywood stylist guy, throws out, “Who made your suit? It’s phenomenal…”
Entertainment CEO even shoots out a, “OK, that’s it, this is the best dinner I have been to all year!” after Stylist guy, who is a true raconteur tells another hilarious story (and I am not talking about those cats that made that dope movie Cocaine Cowboys either, or maybe I am).

“Camilla” the flyer of the two models, a true Beauty of monumentality and vulnerability, follows me for a smoke when actor boy is in the bathroom.

It’s on.

She starts asking me questions as I tell tales of Mediterranean courtyards and terraces and her vibe goes from romantic expectation to dreamy absorption to erotic playfulness quicker than a Samba dance at Carnaval.

I bust a Double Cigarette Light Move, I kiss her and notice the tactility of her Brazilian curves.

We roll back to the table and the dinner is still frolicking along at a decent pace. Some owner and GM type cats roll by as well as plenty of West Coast style Hipster/Douchebag fusion types that Los Angeles is leading the world in producing these days. They are probably actors if I am hard pressed to guess.

Actor guy, vanquished, leaves in discomfiture with a couple of Hipster/Douchebag fusion types, I am presuming in search of Beaks.

Entertainment CEO has to go home to the wife and kids and the extravagant meal kind of breaks up. Some go to smoke weed, some merge with other tables, Camilla and I split for a drink.

Back at my dope hotel (which my horse world friend hooked me up at a discounted rate, I may add), Camilla plays the part of a young girl defending herself against Eros.

I play the part of Mischief and Repose.

Camilla and I sip a glass of wine and admire the sensuous textures of my suite: marble, fur, tile, silk, flesh…

Los 800 – 2004 – Red Wine from Priorat

» 08 August 2009 » In Food, Wine » 2 Comments

Los 800 – 2004 – Red Wine from Priorat

Here is a great big wine to drink: Los 800 – 2004 – Red Wine from Priorat.

Great for day swooping and eating with some Lomo Iberico de Bellota

Two hours from Barcelona, and a world away, lies the tiny wine region called Priorat. The remote rocky hills produce intense, full reds that many consider to be among Spain’s elite wines. The secret is in the slate filled soil, called llicorella in Catalan, and the extreme weather of the region. Grape vines on the roughly 4,000 acres of steep hills suffer hot dry summers and severe cold winters creating low yield grape vines that provide concentrated flavor. The region’s innovative winemakers have created a style that has become one of the hottest trends in wine. Continue

COMPOSITION: 50% Grenache, 30% Carignan, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah

Gary Vaynerchuck on Priorat:

I absolutely love seafood from Galicia.

Few things in life compare to Almeja Blanca.

Maybe a beautiful sunset. Or a dope glass of vino tinto. Swooping a fly girl.

Almeja Blanca are one of the kings of Galician seafood. These large, plump clams are harvested from the pristine sands of the Rias Gallegas, deep inlets in the shores of Galicia.

And enjoy with some Naiades Old Vines Verdejo 2005.

The famous winemaker, Eulogio Calleja, uses a blend of 50% Verdejo and 50% Viura/Sauvignon Blanc to make Las Brisas. Naia is 100% Verdejo which is aged sur lie for 4 months to accentuate the characteristics of the varietal. Naiades is crafted from the oldest ungrafted vines of Verdejo and aged for 8 months in French oak.

Pulling a Vicky Cristina

» 15 July 2009 » In Dope, Game, Girls, Nightlife, Style, Wine » 8 Comments

Pulling a Vicky Cristina

(Here is my Facebook, New Twitter and The G Manifesto Facebook Page)

Click Here 007 Lifestyle – Living Like James Bond!

Click here for Spanish Wines

I usually don’t watch a lot of new movies.

I mostly re-watch old ones: Scarface, Rumble Fish, A Clockwork Orange, Superfly, To Catch a Thief, etc.

Recently, however, I flipped the script. After having more than 50 girls tell me to watch Vicky Cristina Barcelona, I peeped it.

Having lived in Barcelona as a younger prototype G and visited many times since, it was a real pleasure to see the beautiful Catalunyan scenery in the movie.

The one part of the movie that kind of pissed me off was how it threw up on the silver screen for all to see how you swoop two girls at once AKA pulling a “Vicky Cristina”.

I have been using this tactic for years, in fact, I have been almost gotten beyond it. Hell, I even wrote the definitive piece on How to Pick up Three Girls at Once AKA The Trio a while back.

None of this takes away from the fact that Pulling a Vicky Cristina can be a very effective/innovative move for the upwardly mobile International Playboy on The Rise. At least, it will help cut through the boredom in American Nightlife and the ennui associated with American Girls.

Paco de Lucia – Entre dos Aguas

Here is how it is done:

Find the Right Venue
Well, the “wrong” venues, thankfully, are wack spots, sports bars, low end clubs etc. Places you shouldn’t be hanging out at anyways. If you see Ed Hardy shirts and Plastic Tiaras, you are in the wrong place.

Other signs to look for: People that look like they hang out at Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Beenies, tribal tattoos, and girls yelling “Wooo! Girls Night Out! I love my girls!” and other earsplitting phrases. (Seriously, if I hear this type of crap one more time, I am liable to go bonkers, smoke some Sherm Stick, go on a West Coast “Who Ride” and end up wanted for a homicide.)

Conversely, the “right” venues are high-end lounges, Gentleman’s Clubs (of course, this doesn’t really apply to this Chamber of the Manifesto, although technically a great location to pull a Vicky Cristina), Model Girl Bars, sensual restaurants were the Chef does all kinds of sexy things with food, lobby bars of Fly hotels, The French Riviera, South Beach, and of course, Catalunya.

If the drinks are expensive, drugs are being consumed at a rapid pace and the girls look like something you would see on the cover of a Spanish fashion magazine, you are in the right place, Oh my brothers.

Other signs to look for: Titled Royals, Girls dripping with diamonds on their décolletage, a blow dealer you knew from way back, daughters of Industrialist families, etc.

Find The Right Girls

Again thankfully, like many advanced tactics in The World of Game, Pulling a Vicky Cristina actually works better with flyer girls. And richer girls. And smarter girls. And surprisingly, girls with good breeding. Girls traveling. Model girls. Arriviste American Girls. Run of the mill average to decent looking American girls are not good prospects. They like feminine guys, hipsters, Wimpsters, beta males, regular guy and Chrisitan Audiger wearing Buffons. Leave the wack girls for them.

Furthermore, pulling a Vicky Cristina on regular attractive American Girls, is a respectable result but pulling a “VC” on two high-society fly girls is agnate to winning Roland Garros. Or at least a satellite in Dusseldorf.

(Pulling a Vicky Cristina on two fly Exotic Dancers is a good way to pass the time, but let’s face it, who hasn’t done that literally hundreds of times by now?)

Dress Fly
This is an essential. Pulling a Vicky Cristina without dressing sharp is like Rumba without a Trumpet. Or a Parranda without booze and Chicas de la Noche.

If you know me by now, then you know I am predisposed toward Custom suits. Maybe something bespoke and “off-Row” by Douglas Hayward’s Shoppe (95 Mount Street) or Brian Staples’ Shoppe (26 Kingly Street). But with summer already here (The Kentucky Derby marks the start of summer on The G Manifesto Calendar) Resort Style is what I have been flowing with recently.

Think bold shirts, Crimsons, Lavenders, Custom Guayaberas, Irish Linen pants, Gucci Loafers, things like that. Walther P38. Pockets on Green like yellow and blue. Ties looking like a mural. Pocket squares: spiritual, like a ritual.

You want to catch Vicky Cristina prospects eye before approaching. The Art of War. Win every battle before it is fought.

Confidence
You need to come with Extreme confidence when pulling a Vicky Cristina. Fly girls these day are swarmed by all sorts of gigolos, cads, vulgarians, scoundrels, rouges and bounders.

Any hint of weakness in your Game and girls will attack like a lioness smelling sangre on the Shamwari Game Reserve.

For me this isn’t a quandary. Pulling Vicky Cristinas begets more Vicky Cristinas. Top tier Lotharios have verbals hitting hard like Edwin “El Chapo” Rosario. Charmant.

And always be aware of the dark forces that lie hidden beneath the surface, the ones that some people call superstitions: howling banshees, black cats, witches, hats on beds, dogs, The Evil Eye.

giulia y los tellarini- La Ley Del Retiro

Be Latin
You can’t really control this, but if you have Latin blood, you will pull more Vicky Cristina’s then people without Latin Blood. I have done an unofficial case study on this. This is also why whenever you see a smooth cat swooping two girls cold out of at bar, 9 times out of 10 he is some sort of Latin cat. Don’t blame me, this has been going on since the 20’s. Sure there are historically top tier Playboys from other spots, most notably Gunter Sachs and the Guinness kids. If you don’t have Latin blood, maybe try using a fake foreign accent. (Picking up Girls with fake foreign accents will be covered in a future G Manifesto).

Play off both Girls
Common Pick up Theory suggests, when picking up a girl in a two set, you open, neg the target, and gain trust and rapport with the other girl, build rapport and attraction etc. etc. etc.

When pulling a Vicky Cristina, you need to Raise Sexual Tension with Both Girls and neg both girls constantly. Whenever you get rebuffed, simply be calm and act like there is nothing out of the ordinary with your proposal of untamed passion, pleasure, bliss and heaven. Re-frame. And use the right line of Palaver. Remember, there is no Eye like innderstanding.

Keep the Vino Flowing
Vino is the official drink of pulling off a Vicky Cristina. Top Shelf Vodka Sodas work as well, as does the occasional shot. But pound for pound, round for round, Vino is the Heavyweight Champ of Mood Setters.

Click Here for Spanish Vino

E-Tabs are known to work as well. But that’s neither Lucite heels nor dollar bill peels. And spark up cigarettes for style points. Or light up the cigar and let the aroma reach up. It’s like the smile on the Mona Lisa or like a falcon flying over Giza.

Use a Big Close.

Bliss, bliss and heaven, oh it is gorgeousness and georgeosity made flesh.

Keep in mind, one of the two girls is guaranteed to ruin the perfect situation. (Many times by morning).

It’s just in a girl’s nature.

Emilio de Benito – Granada

Advantage of The Vicky Cristina

Solves the problem of picking up two fly girls at the same time.

No need to call in a buddy for backup and having him fumble the deal.

Really “ups” your swoop numbers.

Turns a regular night of swooping into great fun.

Now, pretty much all I do when I am in America is pull Vicky Cristinas.

My mind is the enigma filled with broken pictures.

The G can see clearer now.

I feel my veil of sanity is starting to slip.

Jaynes Gastropub: Viña Tondonia Rosado 1998 Rioja, Spain

In San Diego, getting ready for The Del Mar Racetrack to begin (6 days 19:10:06 till first post fyi), I recently went to Jaynes Gastropub. (The owners are a class act, fyi).

Had the pan con tomate, with Jamon Serrano, crab cake and Gambas Al Aljillo. All insane.

Also, gulped down some Viña Tondonia Rosado 1998 Rioja, Spain by López de Heredia that quickly became my favorite Rose.

Get some if you can get your hands on it.
