It may be more than a century older than the country it calls home, but these days, Montréal is bursting with new energy. The Québecois city seems to have it all—cobblestoned colonial neighborhoods, hundreds of historic churches, one of the world's best jazz scenes, and even a small mountain in its city center. And we haven't even begun to talk about its most famous accolade; the food scene!
Think piles of smoked meat, poutine for days and more ways to eat foie gras than you can ever imagine! The culinary scene is endlessly innovative and wildly creative to tried-and-true local cuisine traditions. Swanky bistros, casual eateries and pop-up restaurants all make Montréal's gastronomy experiences as spectacular as they are delicious.
An unmissable 24-hour food journey through the city must include:
- Morning pastry and coffee from Pâtisserie Rhubarbe and a stroll on Laurier Ave.
- Juicy smoked meat sandwich from Schwartz's delicatessen
- Market stall jambon - fromage crepe from the Jean Talon market (Visit Fromagerie Hamel)
- Delightful small sharing plates and natural wines from Stem Bar or Vin Papillion in Notre Dame
- Exotic 1970's cocktail and midnight snack at Bar le Mal Necessaire
- Late late - night cocktail and maybe a boogie at Atwater Cocktail Club
