This week Chris 'Zeke' Hand and Ed Hawco (also known as Blork) start off at Le Cheval Blanc before walking down the street to the legendary Montreal institution Restaurant Philippe. And by a happy coincidence they are joined by one of Montreal's best chefs, Julie Rondeau.

Zeke ended up arriving early and as you would expect immediately started talking to himself. Julie spots Zeke from across the bar and joins him. Blork shows up slightly later.
