MAY 29TH, 2008


Katherine S. Evans, the sassy and stylish director of Opus Hotel, recently moved from Vancouver to open the Opus Montreal. Here are some of her favorite things:

Best place to practice your French?
Shopping on Saint-Denis Street.

Off the beaten path shopping?
The antique stores along Notre-Dame Street. I found sterling silver cutlery that perfectly matches my grandmother's set.

Late-night eatery?
After 10 p.m., French bistro Leméac does an amazing three-course set menu for $22. 1045 Laurier St. W., 514-270-0999.

Local designer?
I've become completely obsessed with Marie Saint Pierre. She's a wonderful lady and I think her designs are right up there with the best in Paris. 2081 de la Montagne St., 514-281-5547.

Take-out spot?
The food at Yoy Sushi Bar is really fresh. They deliver in 20 minutes and their albacore tuna is absolutely to die for! 4526 St. Denis St., 514-844-9884.

Make-out spot?
It's a shameless plug but I must say the Presidential Suite at the Opus Hotel.

Best thing about Montreal?
Watching people come out of the woodwork and filling up Saint-Laurent Boulevard on the first sunny day of spring.
