17 Lowkey Restaurants You Want To Be Seen At In Montreal

OK, so I have this conversation with my friends, boyfriend, and sister almost EVERY weekend. Whenever we want to go out for dinner, we always have this problem of finding somewhere lowkey to go. What I mean by this, is that we want to go to a new LIT restaurant where we don't have to wear heels or put on pounds of makeup. We want a lowkey night where we can wear Adidas and a T-Shirt and be basic.
