As the Executive Editor at Forbes Travel Guide, my finger is firmly on the pulse of the latest in luxury travel. My own journeys have brought me everywhere from Shanghai to Tasmania to the Baltics, and I’m always on the lookout for the next great city to visit. I’ve parlayed my globe-trotting into my work, serving as an editor and writer at such publications as HotelChatter, Jaunted, AOL and Time Out Chicago. When I’m not scoping out a new travel destination, you’ll find me trying hot new restaurants, seeing the latest play or just having a laugh at a comedy show.

    This week, I'm heading to Canada, where I can indulge in some authentic poutine. But I'm going to put these spots on my list for my next Chicago trip:

    Alain, thank you for these delicious-sounding poutine suggestions. I am heading to Newfoundland, but I just may have to make a trip to Montreal soon to try out these restaurants. Thanks for sharing your poutine picks.

    Hi Jennifer! If your trip takes you to Montreal, I'm in the process of tasting all the best poutines in the city and so far I would recommend to try Méchant Boeuf for their poutine with Charlevoix Migneron cheese, homemade veal-stock sauce and pulled pork. Then Patati Patata, possibly the smallest restaurant in the city but with big character and a great poutine; La Banquise, of course, for their more than 20 different types of poutines and 24 hours service and Brouhaha, which I have yet to try, but heard great things about their Poutiflette, a cross between a poutine and a tartiflette! Enjoy!
