As a woman, I have to admit that figuring out what to wear for a dinner date is always a challenge. Thoughts like, "If I wear a dress, will it be too much?" always rush through my mind and I end up toning down my wardrobe choices. So I thought, why not put together a list of restaurants where you don't have to worry about being overdressed? It's time to dig out your best pair of heels and a cocktail dress, because these Montreal places love to see you make a fashion statement.
Le Club Chasse et Pêche
423 Rue Saint-Claude
This is a classic, romantic Montreal restaurant. Think Marilyn Monroe and Marlon Brando era. Dark, inviting and irresistibly charming ambiance of this place will take you back in time and make you dream.
139 Rue Saint Paul O
Scarlet is a perfect combination of old-school rustic and edgy modern styles. Don't be afraid to wear bold colors and fashion statements that would be considered "over the top" anywhere else.
