3 MTL Restos Were Featured On This Season Of The Food Network's 'Big Food Bucket List'

While we can't fully take advantage of it at the moment, Montrealers know we live in one of world's best culinary cities — and, now, everyone who watches the Food Network knows it too because three Montreal restaurants were featured on Big Food Bucket List this season, which aired between September 2020 and January 2021.

It's always fun to watch local content on TV, but even more fun knowing that when you get hungry, which will inevitably happen, all you have to do — barring sad COVID-19 closures — is pick-up your phone and order your own taste of the dish you see on screen.

For anyone in dire need of a little retail therapy, there's no better time than now to indulge because so many stores in Montreal are having summer sales at the moment.
