Celebrating Montreal spring away from the snow

By Margot Thomas

MONTREAL, Canada,  celebrates its 375th anniversary this year and the PanamaPLUS Foundation is planning its own celebration at Panama City’s one and only Montreal style restaurant.

The first days of spring in Montreal  will be a little chilly this year with snow in the forecast but CanadaPLUS is planning it’s own warm welcome to the official start of the season  at   Canadian owned Solomon’s Restaurant on Tuesday March 21

No one goes home hungry from Solomons and  service is Canadian warm and friendly.

Here’s an   opportunity to count your Panama weather blessings, sample specially imported Montreal smoked meats, revisit  or discover poutine and meet old  and new  friends while being serenaded  on the patio with song and music on the patio  by  a fabulous group led by classical guitarist John Carney, fresh from the  Boquete Jazz and Blues Festival.

The Montreal comfort food samplings include lentil soup and  pea soup,  poutine ( *if it’s new to you, see below), smoked meat sandwiches, and  chicken and meat sliders, served warm  on custom made rye bread and onion rings made from scratch. You can slather your meaty samples with a custom made mustard shipped in from Toronto.

*Poutine a l dish from Montreal classic and authentic, ppyatoes  hand-cut and fried  twice so they are crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside, then topped  with custom made cheese curds, home-made beef gravy (mushroom gravy for vegetarians).

The evening includes a starter glass of wine and  is topped off with a surprise dessert.

There’s a cash bar, door prizes and yes they have Canadian Coors.

The price for a fulfilling night out is $20 members, $25 nonmembers (tax and tips included).
