The food scene in any city is a reflection of its population. Because whenever they migrate and settle, humans always bring their culinary footprint along. Simply said, food and culture are forever linked. And thank god for that.
First and second generation Montrealers are all grown up. And the Montreal resto scene is seeing the effects manifest right before their eyes. Propelled by a fleet of young entrepreneurs a new wave of restaurants is cropping up. With food inspired by the flavours and spirit of their roots, and more importantly, by a restless entrepreneurial drive and out-to-change-the-world millennial sensibility. Creating the perfect storm for a culinary revolution, right in our very own city.
Montreal - being the wonderful melting-pot of cultures that it is- is the ideal environment to cultivate the growth of this bold new culinary movement, but only if you actually take the time to visit these gems in person, that is.
