Palais

This time next week, representatives from Springer Publishing Company will be making their way to the beautiful city of Montreal for the annual American Counseling Association conference. From March 31st-April 3rd,the counseling event of the year will take place in one of the most eclectic cities in the world. Even though this is the American Counseling Association, having the conference in Montreal gives ACA members an opportunity to learn about counseling techniques and practices on an international level.

The conference will be hosted at the Palais des Congress de Montreal. Located in the heart of Old Montreal, there are so many amazing places to eat. To make sure you don't miss anything during your visit, use one of your breaks in the conference to check out one of these delicious places:

1. Schwartz's - For over 85 years, Schwartz's has been the name in smoked meat. Make sure you have some time for this place though, the line has been known to be around the block for some of the best kosher sandwiches outside the Lower East Side.

2.La Banquise- If you don't know what poutine is, do yourself a favor a look it up immediately. We imagine you'll be booking your ticket to Montreal shortly after. La Banquise has over 30 different types of poutine on their menu, and your mouth will be watering over all of them.

3.Chinatown- Sure, every city has one. But Montreal's Chinatown has been around since the second half of the 19th century, and is one of the oldest Asian districts in North America. There are so many places to eat or stores to buy spices and food, that you'd be remiss to miss it.

4. St Viateur Bagel- These Montreal bagels are boiled in honey water, no salt, and baked in a wood burning oven for extra flavor. The classic here is the sesame seed bagel, and St. Viateur's is open 24 hours a day, so visit whenever your bagel craving strikes!

5. Wilensky- Bologna sandwiches sound like what you throw together in a school lunch when everyone wakes up late. Not this place. These are hailed as the best bologna sandwiches for over 80 years, served with a little mustard and a pickle.
