Things to do in Montreal:

EAT

Joe Beef

Little Burgundy

Always on 'best restaurants in the world' lists. Gluttonous steak & seafood with quebecois ingredients.  Mike ate his first horse steak here and talks about it all the time. If you can't get in try Liverpool House & Le Vin Papillon one block over. Same owners and a similar menu. 


Hôtel Herman

Plateau Mont-Royal

Gastropub with retro cocktails and very popular among Montreal's top chefs. We sat next to Jennifer Lawrence when we ate here so there's a 100% chance you'll see her if you go. The orange wine is a favorite of Christie's.


au pied de cochon

Plateau Mont-Royal

One of Montreal's best, with a fun atmosphere and more gluttony on the menu.  Try the Duck-In-A-Can.


L'Express

Plateau Mont-Royal

French bistro great for food or just drinks at the bar.  The Cuvée Marie served in mini bottles is Christie's all-time favorite.


L'ORIGNAL

Old Montreal

You can eat stuff like bison tartare or hang in the lively bar area.
