Almost any restaurant you duck into on rue St. Denis is bound to be good, but Studzio is fantastic. This airy restaurant with a great terrace for outdoor eating has jazz playing inside, modern art on the walls, and friendly, bilingual service. The French Canadian food is artfully presented and absolutely delicious (try their endive salad, homemade pasta, or baguette sandwiches, grilled and seasoned to perfection).
- Order a "magic potion." A cross between a smoothie and a blended juice drink, these fruit concoctions are served with a fancy straw and cherry. Kids love them.
- No portion distortion. Servings are just the right size but may seem small by American standards. If you're hungry, order an appetizer as well as a main dish. Whatever you order, you'll leave wanting to come back for another meal.
- No need to rush to breakfast. Their breakfast menu is served until 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.
