Montreal is a city famous for its food. Boasting a culinary scene that’s at the forefront of
innovation, it’s just one of the many reasons this cosmopolitan city is high on any traveller’s wish
Foodie’s come from far and wide to experience the city’s tried-and-tested favorites, classics with a twist and unusual flavor combinations.
But, with curfews in place due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, in-dining experiences are limited. Many
restaurants now offer their unique fares in the comfort of your own home. Takeout options have exploded.
Here are just a few of our favorites.
LOV on McGill Street
Offering up elevated vegan and vegetarian plates, this stylish restaurant is popular with
meat-eaters and vegans alike. Voted number 11 of 72 contemporary restaurants in Montreal,
the whitewashed walls and intimate seating options make it a favorite with locals and tourists.
Now available for takeout and delivery through Uber Eats, you don’t have to live without their
mouth-watering plant-based deliciousness. However, it’s well worth returning to the Montreal
restaurant when protocol allows. You’ll experience the welcoming atmosphere that’s mentioned in almost
all of its 2,120 reviews. It’s even better if you can snag one of the hanging wicker chairs to enjoy it from!
Boris Bistro on McGill Street

a grown-up night out. Complete with a buzzing and spacious terrace, Boris Bistro is a popular

Maison Christian Faure on Place Royale
Voted the number three bakery in Montreal, Maison Christian Faure should be a mandatory stop for
anyone with a sweet tooth. One reviewer claimed “better almond croissants than
I’ve found in France.” With tarts, cakes and other traditional French pastries, it’s a sugar-filled haven
in downtown Montreal. Only open for takeout due to COVID, you can order direct from the store or find it
on Uber Eats.
Their macarons make a unique souvenir of your time in the city.
Also, a perfect gift for friends and family – assuming they last that long! Aimed at professionals and
“serious amateurs” they also operate the 1st international teaching school dedicated to French pastry in
Canada. If you’re serious about the craft you can discover more on their website.

experience. With COVID restrictions in place around the city, they now have takeout Wednesday-
Sunday with an evolving menu to reflect the variety of foods from local producers.
Accords Le Bistro on St. Catherine Street
Last but not least, a restaurant temporarily closed, but too good to miss off the list. Accords le Bistro is a
modern eatery serving seasonal dishes with an eclectic twist. All meals are paired with an extensive natural
wine selection. The friendly staff will help you discover the perfect tipple whether you’ve chosen their red
deer tartare or fish of the day.
