My favorite Montreal restaurants

My series on visiting Montreal ends on a high note: Montreal restaurants! I’ll be honest: the thing I was most looking forward to about visiting Montreal – outside of my friends, of course! – was the food. Living in a small town has meant that I crave great restaurants even more¬†when I travel.

Montreal: Old Port

Did you know that Montreal is 375 years old this year? There’s been all sorts of celebrations and events in honor of the anniversary. My friends met up there for a long-overdue girls’ trip to check out the city! First stop? Old Port!
