Most Memorable Restaurants of 2017

Montreal Foo Foodie’s Most Memorable Restaurants of 2017


This year had no shortages when it came to great places to dine in Montreal. With so many restaurants openings monthly, there is so little time to try them all. I got to visit some places that had been on my wish list for a while as well as some new comers to the Montreal dining scene.

I continued organizing dinners with my own group this year and took a walking tour of Little Italy. I made some good friends that are like minded through my dining experiences and we have much more planned for the New Year. I decided to start writing a cookbook and compile a list of my favorite dishes from around the world. I will be taking my writings to a different level in 2018, delving deeper into the history of food.

This is a list of all the places where I had memorable dishes that left me with a lasting impression either because of the quality of food, décor and hospitality.
