PLATEAU— Portuguese mainstay Portus Calle is about to celebrate a decade in business on December 10 with chef Helena Loureiro's ten-course menu. The soirée is the restaurant's tenth, and final, special event of 2013 to commemorate the important anniversary. [Twitter]

BUTTER NEWS— Société-Orignal has developed a singular reputation as a first-rate purveyor of fine and unusual Québécois products. Now the outfit with a cult-like cadre of culinary followers has a butter on deck. But not just any butter mind you: 84% cultured Haute-Yamaska butter. [Twitter]

SAINT-ROCH-DE-L'ACHIGAN— Chef Nancy Hinton's multi-course December menu for Les Jardins Sauvages looks superb. [Twitter]

PLATEAU— Globe, still in a festive mood after the restaurant's recent 20th anniversary bash, has a special holiday prix fixe menu for groups. [Instagram]

OUTREMONT— Van Horne owners Sylvie Lachance and Urs Jakob went all out for the restaurant's inaugural Raclette/Swiss Sundays. [Twitter]

AHUNTSIC— As this tweet from Le St-Urbain chef/owner Marc-André Royal makes apparent, restaurants in the east end and N.D.G. are not the only ones to fall victim to nefarious shenanigans. [Twitter]

FRUITCAKE WIRE— Just in time for the holidays, Gazette critic Lesley Chesterman wants to make fruitcake converts of us all. [Twitter]

DOWNTOWN— Bubbly will overflow at Apollo on December 11 for a special Piper-Heidsieck Champagne menu in partership with the house's powerhouse president Cécile Bonnefond. [Twitter]

COOKBOOK WIRE— Former Montrealer and Joe Beef alum and cookbook collaborator Meredith Erickson recently got a very decent shout-out for her new project with chef Gabriel Rucker, Le Pigeon: Cooking at the Dirty Bird. [Twitter]
