Go-to spots for food that travels well.
It's always good to have go-to food spots with dishes that taste just as good whether you eat them there or bring them home. But knowing which Montreal restaurants have the best take-out is even more important during a pandemic when restaurant dining rooms flip flop between being open and being closed.
These local eateries serve food that travels well, which makes them perfect picks when enjoying a meal at home (or in a park, or at a friend's house or in a car or... you get it).
