Let it Snow! Let it Snow!

Thanksgiving morning brought snow to Montreal and sleet...kind of "sneet". We went bowling in the afternoon (jason - 1; Mom - 2; Jerry - watched). We ate lunch at La Sirene de le Mer located at the corner of Soave and L'Acadie near the Marche Central (they have another location on Jean Talon). This was a "pick your fish from the tank/ice" kind of place. Jason had his first real lobster, picked fresh from the tank, and loved it. We ate so much for lunch we decided to put off our Thanksgiving dinner until Friday!!!! It snowed lightly during the night, just like fairy dust. Friday was a day of "glitter" flurries. Really cool. We walked to the newly reopened and renovated Chez Delmo on Rue Notre Dame. We had just the best dining experience. Food great. Wait staff excellent. And jason loved that the bartender knows something about making a great martini (legal drinking age here is 18). We'd highly recommend Chez Delmo. The mango sorbet is divine as is the cheese plate. Poached cod was perfect. And the shrimp risotto was savory and flavorful. Saturday we "prowled" on rue St. Paul looking in our favorite galleries. This is a picture of Jason strolling down Rue St paul (carrying mom's bag, so I could take picture...what a guy!)
