My Top 4 Food Recommendations in Montréal

1. Macbar et fromage Of all the places I ate in Montréal, this one takes the cake. I came across this mac & cheese bar on Yelp weeks before I stepped foot in the city. It was everything I wanted and more. When I walked in, the host was beyond nice and helped me narrow…

Hector

Montreal: Day 5 After you meet Hector, you won’t ever forget him. His smile and laughter would carry joy into any room. His personality was one of sass and pizzazz with a comedic flare. I met him in the Old Port of Montreal. While my friend contemplated shooting her shot with one of his co-workers,…

Danny

Montreal: Day 3 First off, Danny needs a raise. My friend and I met him when we stumbled across a chocolate restaurant. When we walked in, he came over to seat us, but we only wanted a menu. (We had just paid $70 for decent jazz and mediocre food at another restaurant so we were…

Lew & Jay

Montreal: Day 2 As a former French student, I have always been slightly jealous that people in Quebec grow up speaking both French & English.
