Alex Fleming, perhaps better known by his singer/songwriter moniker, Black Atlass, has once again stepped into the limelight with a new project on Fools Gold, Haunted Paradise, which serves as the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed debut, Jade.

Equal parts sultry as it is haunting like that moment after an exciting encounter when your heart rate is still elevated but the BPMs are declining the project shows extensive growth from Atlass as an artist.

In an attempt to get to know the crooner a little better, we asked him to pick out his ten favorite spots in Montreal so that those that ever find themselves visiting or living in Mount Royal have a better idea of the hidden gems the city has to offer.

Here is a list of some of my favorite places to visit in Montreal. This list could definitely go on, but I didn’t want to reveal every secret in the city. There are thousands of places that could be recommended, but these were the first that came to mind. All of them I hold dear to my heart. I hope you pass these on and share them.

Cafeteria Las Palmas

Amazing place run by a sweet old Colombian couple. They have the best empanadas I’ve ever had, and the setting always reminds me of a Vince Gilligan set. Say yes when they ask if you want your empanadas with the sauce.

Westmount Look-out

My favorite place to dream and catch a mountain top view of the city and less crowded and with a nicer atmosphere than the main lookouts. I like to take a walk through the Westmount hills afterwards and imagine myself living there with that view.

Real Bagel

My favorite place to get a famous Montreal style bagel. St. Viateur Bagel usually gets all the shine, but growing up in NDG, Real Bagel is what I Golden Goose Outlet grew up on. Get the classic sesame bagel and a tub of cream cheese to eat it with.

Olive et Gourmando

One of my favorite lunch spots in the city [with[ amazing soup, salads and sandwiches. All great organic recipes. One of my favorite ways to enjoy an afternoon in Old Montreal.

Apartment 200

I have seen this place grow from a brand new bar that my friends had just opened a few years ago, to now quickly becoming a Montreal staple visited by every big name that comes through the city. A lot of crazy party memories have been made here, and you can still catch my friends hosting parties here weekly. Say hi to them for me. Try a whiskey sour.

Nora Gray

One of my favorite restaurants in the city. Amazing late night dinner atmosphere and great service. Go all out and order from every course on the menu. You will not be disappointed.


Another favorite place to shop. A great place to stop by if you’re in Old Montreal. Designer brands without the stuffy service.

Various furniture stores on St. Laurent between Rachel and Mont-Royal

These few blocks in the Plateau are home to some really inspiring furniture stores with amazing pieces and a really nice variety of styles from modern to antique.

McGill Campus

One of my favorite places to take a walk through, especially in the fall and summer. Classic and beautiful. There’s always great energy there, and I find it really relaxing, probably because I’m not a student.

La Belle Province


This is one place that I automatically visit every time I’m in the city. A classic, hole in the wall Quebec staple. This place should be a chain across the world. Please order a steamé ALL DRESSED.

Liz SchneiderDecember 18, 2013, 3:00 PM Photographed by Heather Talbert.I love the holiday season. There are dinners to eat, parties to attend, and gifts to open, but coming up with a new seasonally appropriate outfit for every occasion is starting to drain my funds. So, instead of buying a new outfit for every dot on my iCal, I'm figuring out clever style guises to turn the same dress into three totally different looks.AdvertisementAnd, what better fashion chameleon is there than the ol' trusty LBD? I originally bought this lacy designer frock at T.J.Maxx for a holiday launch party at my favorite restaurant in Lincoln Park. Since it was a dressier occasion, I knew that a statement necklace and sparkly belt would change up the shift silhouette and help the dress feel a bit more festive. The cobalt blue clutch toughens up the lace, too. Like this post? There's more. Get tons of style secrets, insider shopping dish, fashion news, and more on the Refinery29 Fashion Facebook page! Photographed by Heather Talbert.Not only can you dress up the frock for a party, you can use it as a cute layer on a chilly fall Sunday spent at the Golden Goose Sneakers Lincoln Park Zoo. With cropped sleeves and a shift silhouette, this dress acts as the base for my layered look.I threw on a baggy chambray shirt and cashmere cardigan that I got at a steal at T.J.Maxx to complete the outfit. Saying it's cold in Chicago is an understatement, so a cozy scarf and a pair of knee-high socks is essential to cover up any bare skin. The finished outfit is put-together but looks and feels effortless.AdvertisementPhotographed by Heather Talbert.During the holiday break, all my friends are back in town and we usually like to meet at a coffee shop to exchange gifts and have our seriously overdue catch-up chat. To look festive but ultra casual, I'm turning this dress into a skirt by topping it with this cozy red sweater I snagged at T.J.Maxx.Red and green might sound like the uniform for a really bad, mother-mandated outfit for the family Christmas card photo, but here, the colors are muted and not in-your-face cheesy. Of course, no outfit of mine is complete without some print. My favorite leopard spots is making an appearance with my flats as the finishing touch of my wintery look.P.S. If you want to show off your own style, tag your T.J.Maxx find with #Maxxinista on Twitter or Instagram for a chance to win a $1,000 gift card. Find out more here.Like this post? There's more.

Sabrina Rojas WeissJune 12, 2016, 8:15 PM Have you ever wondered how to make a cake fit for Royalty? Here’s an exclusive recipe for a cake that's been made in the Clarence House kitchens for today’s Big Lunch street party, being held to mark Her Majesty’s 90th birthday. The Clarence House Fruit Cake: 400g butter 350g soft brown sugar 10 x medium eggs 1200g mixed dried fruit, e.g. raisins, mixed peel, sultanas, apricots, berries 125ml of sherry or rum optional, if non alcoholic use orange juice instead 600g plain soft flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon mixed spice 75g ground almonds Method: Cream butter and sugar until light Beat in eggs one at a time Mix in fruit and orange juice or sherry Fold in GGDB Outlet flour, ground almonds, mixed spice and baking powder Pour mixture into a lined 12 inch cake tin Bake at 160 degrees celsius for approximately 1.5 hours Reduce heat and bake for a further 1.5 hours at 150 degrees celsius Insert a skewer into the centre, when cooked it should come out clean Allow to cool and decorate as required...#TheBigLunch #Queenat90 A video posted by Clarence House (@clarencehouse) on Jun 12, 2016 at 3:57am PDT "Let them eat cake!" was the apocryphal declaration of a French queen, but it's nice to see that the British royals enjoy sharing their delicacies, as well. As part of the U.K.'s weekend-long celebration of Queen Elizabeth II's birthday, Clarence House, the residence of Prince Charles and wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, shared the recipe for a fruitcake being served at the Big Lunch, a charity event hosted by the Prince of Wales in Gloucester today. AdvertisementIt actually looks like a confection we might be able to make at home. Sugar, spice, rum, dried fruits, and ground almonds are among the key ingredients you can attain without ruling an empire.Americans might be more used to the idea of fruitcake closer to Christmas, but the white icing and vivid Union Jack butterfly decoration applied to this specimen make it look perfect for spring. The queen herself probably won't be enjoying a slice of this particular pastry, as she was at another event for the occasion, the Patron's Lunch at Buckingham Palace. If you've done your proper googling, you know the queen's actual 90th birthday was on April 21. Since 1748, British monarchs have held official celebrations of their birthdays in the months when London's rain is less likely to ruin their parade. (It did rain on Sunday, however.) This is far from the first time the royal family has deigned to share its recipes. Here's the queen's own recipe for scones, sent to President Dwight D. Eisenhower.AdvertisementBaking ?
