Brasserie T!

Brasserie T! is a sister restaurant to the world renowned Toqué. Located inside a glass box, the bistro offers an excellent view of the fountains. They serve upscale contemporary French cuisine, along with a nice drink selection and an extensive wine list. It’s an excellent choice for a pre-show meal, especially if you like to people-watch.

Bouillon Bilk

2
1595, boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2X 2S9

It’s impossible not to fall in love with Bouillon Bilk. It may be easy to miss, given its location between two electronics stores on a low-key strip of Saint-Laurent, but once you’ve eaten there you’ll never forget it. Don’t let the location or minimalist décor fool you – every one of the dishes is packed with intricate flavours and fresh ingredients that make for a great meal.

Taverne F

Biiru

1433, rue City Councillors, Montréal, QC H3A 2E4

Located not too far away from the action, on rue City Councillors, Biiru is a small and trendy izakaya offering traditional Japanese bistro fare and cocktails, not to mention great vibes. Enjoy a few cool cocktails on their lovely terrace, or dine inside and enjoy the rustic décor over nibbles to share.

Accords - Le bistro

6
22, rue Sainte-Catherine E, Montréal, QC H2X 1K4

Located on the corner of two of Montreal’s busiest streets, this urban bistro serves upscale fresh cuisine from lunch all the way to late in the evening. Their splendid meals are best enjoyed with a bottle from their extensive organic wine list. During the summer, sit on the patio and watch the fast-paced city pass you by at lunch, in the evening, or for a quick bite after the show.

NYK'S Bistro Pub

7
1250 rue de Bleury, Montréal, QC H3B 2W4

This small but seriously charming bistro located right next to the Place des festivals is the perfect place for a beer before (or after) an event or for a good meal, thanks to a menu featuring pasta, fish & chips, poutine (including one with pulled pork and foie gras sauce), flank steak and burgers, including a veggie version.

SIX Resto Lounge

8
1255 Rue Jeanne-Mance, Montréal, QC H5B 1E5

Located on the sixth floor of the hotel Hyatt overlooking the Place des festivals, SIX extends a warm welcome with its long list of appetizers and salads, tapas and entrees. Worthy of particular mention are the beef shoulder fillet with cranberry and maple sauce and the salmon fillet with white butter.

Sésame

9
288, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H2X 2A1

This small chain of Asian restaurants offers something for everyone: salads, tartares, fried rice and various wok-fried dishes (beef, chicken, prawns, tofu). And there's even a Thai poutine to dazzle your taste buds!

Bâton Rouge

10
180, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H5B 1B5

When we say steakhouse, Batôn Rouge springs immediately to mind. Both surf and turf are very well represented here, with steaks and seafood dishes. Lovers of ribs will not be disappointed, and for the less carnivorously inclined, they also offer risottos and pasta.

On a cold, snowy Edmonton night, nothing says lovin’ like a cup of hot chocolate. It’s no surprise this drink was originally dubbed the “elixir of the gods.” Regardless of the variety you select, or whether you opt for the simplest hot chocolate on the menu, all I can say is ... don’t forget the marshmallows.
You don’t have to travel to Paris to have a true fine-dining experience; you can enjoy an upscale dinner, complete with a five-course meal and fine wine, right here at home. Victoria is a fine-dining destination with an excellent reputation – where talented chefs enjoy crafting delicious gourmet dishes from fresh, locally sourced ingredients.
Paired with a nice cup of coffee or topped with a scoop of ice cream, pie is unbeatable comfort food. And yet it faces stiff competition from cupcakes as the city’s dessert of choice. Well, pie is fighting back with old fashioned deliciousness as well as new and tantalizing flavours.
