Happy Halloween! It felt like restaurant week over here these past few days. First I tried the newly opened Lea, which now gets my #1 vote for best option under a 5 minute car ride from my place. The owners of Grinder and Le Hachoir opened their third restaurant in Westmount and serve portuguese tapas in a familiar Zébulon Perron-designed setting. The next day, I tried Bocata, sister restaurant to one of my favorites, Barroco—either are a great option for a cool rainy night. The lobster pasta was on point (but anything that involves lobster is hard to mess up in my book). Finally, I had dinner at Le Serpent last night (though it was technically my second time there)—one of Montreal’s most promising new restaurants. I liked it even better the second time around, and it might have had something to do with the white truffle special. Still, my favorite meal on their menu remains the lobster risotto. I urge you to go there and try it ASAP!
In case you missed it this week, I talked about choosing the best sconces for your bedroom, explored Amber’s latest project (it’s a goodie!) and I was inspired by this color combination I’m dying to try in a new project.
Furbish Studio is having a flash sale and knocking 15% off everything in store with the code FALLBACK. This is perfect timing if you ask me, given that Jamie’s been adding crazy good stuff to the store. Case in point: this cool quilt, this sweet serving dish, this furry stool, this striped lamp, these splatter bowls, this striped throw, this ikat chair, this sweet hanging chair, this swinger sconce, this beachy lumbar pillow, this amazing plaid rug, this quirky mirrored star pendant, this rattan mirror and these splatter lamps, I could go on, but I’ll stop here.
