Montreal's Famous Smoked Meat at Schwartz's Deli
Schwart's smoked meat is the centerpiece of the menu, and is oft-compared with the pastrami at New York's Katz's deli. It's not an unreasonable comparison, as both restaurants were founded by Romanian Jews, and both serve marinated beef brisket that is then smoked.

When you order at Prince’s Hot Chicken Shack, choose your cut of chicken, sides and most importantly, the level of heat for your chicken. “Medium” gives you nice heat spreading through your mouth and throat, and a tingle on your lips, while “hot” burns all the way down like drinking bourbon mash. Only order the chicken extra-hot if you're on a dare, because medium will be hot enough for most spice-hardy people. Whatever heat level you order, don't ever touch your eyes while eating hot chicken. Page 3.

But Two Ladies' strawberry mochi earns raves that come perilously close to swooning. Address and contact info. Page 11.

Dalloyau
Dalloyau is a venerable confectioner in Paris, dating back to 1682. The business is now global, with locations in Dubai, Seoul, Doha and Tokyo, and it's also easy to find all over Paris: there are eight locations in the city, not including the airport and Publicis drugstore. Page 5.

Fine Dining Choices Abound in Montreal
When it's time to sit down for dinner, Montreal offers a ridiculous number of excellent choices. One of the city's consistently high-rated restaurants is Nuance -- located at the city's casino, which is either a plus or a big minus depending on your feelings about casinos. Great food in a more casual atmosphere can be found at one of the city's culinary icons, Au Pied du Cochon, owned by chef/celebrity Martin Picard. It would be a gustatory crime to miss his foie gras poutine. Page 9.

Le Marche de Saveuers du Québec
Le Marche de Saveuers, across from Jean Talon Market, is where you'll want to pick up your Québecois foodie souvenirs. The store carries only food and drink made in Québec: wine, jam, spreads, and that most iconic of Canadian foods, maple syrup. The shop carries the pretty glass bottles shaped like a maple leaf, but you'll get a better deal (and be shopping like a local) if you purchase it in a can. Transfer it to a glass jar once you open it and keep it in the fridge. Page 8.
400 Degrees
400 Degrees owner and Nashville native Aqui Simpson grew up eating at Prince's Hot Chicken Shack. Now she has her own place, and serves a crusty hot chicken. Sides include fantastic creamy coleslaw and very sweet baked beans. Well worth a trip to this slightly seedy part of town. Page 7.
Chicken Real
Chicken Real in Old Hickory, Tennessee. It’s about 15 miles outside of downtown Nashville, a good choice for travelers who would rather stay in the suburbs. Chicken Real is a great choice if you’d like to seem tougher than the actual tolerance of your stomach lining. The chicken here comes in “mild, ” “hot” and “suicide.” but even the “suicide” isn’t as hot as the mid-level heat at the downtown hot chicken shacks. Page 9.

E. Dehillerin, Cookware Shop in Paris
E. Dehillerin has been selling cookware for professionals and serious home chefs since 1820, and from its present location since 1880. This is a store that definitively favors function over form, which you'll notice when you look at the exuberantly cluttered windows, where merchandise is stacked more than displayed. Page 3.
Sadaharu Aoki Paris
Sadaharu Aoki has made a name for himself blending his own Japanese heritage (he was born in Tokyo) with the finest tradition of French pastry and confections. The results are as interesting as they are delicious: green tea éclairs, yuzu macaron, a line of chocolates that looks like makeup. Try it for yourself at one of his four shops in Paris, which include an outpost at Galeries Lafayette Gourmet. Page 3.

What are New York City's favorite food experiences -- streets, markets restaurants? Ask ten New Yorkers and you'll get ten different answers. While it's easy for visitors to find the expensive big-name spots, it's harder for visitors to track down the places locals love. Here, an evolving gallery of picks for essential New York eating and food shopping experiences, many of which celebrate this city's greatest strength: its diversity.
Jean Talon Food Market in Montreal
Jean Talon Market in Montreal is one of the best food markets in the world. With both indoor and outdoor space (the outdoor space mostly used in the warmer months), the market offers produce, flowers, prepared foods and even a cookbook store. It's often described as the largest outdoor market in North America. Page 7.
Montreal's Best Bagels
You can't visit Montreal without sampling one of the city's best bagels. Bagels came to Montreal with Jewish immigrants, and if you're used to New York style bagels, you'll find they're smaller, more chewy and -- some would argue -- much better. The two stalwarts (and arch rivals) in town are Fairmount (since 1950) and St. Viateur's (since 1957). Both make bagels the traditional way -- boiled, then baked in a wood-fired oven, and at both the default flavor is sesame. Page 2.
