Montreal is one of the world's greatest food cities — and not even a global pandemic could change that. New Montreal restaurants continue to open, which means there are new restaurants local foodies need to try.
It's true that restaurant dining rooms are closed from October 1 to October 28, while Montreal and certain regions of Quebec are in 'red alert' — but take-out and delivery are still going strong.
That means you can still safely check out new restaurants, and cross them off your 'Montreal foodie bucket list' throughout the month of October.
