Mouth-watering Montréal

On the run, simple and informal, or five-diamond ranked, food is undeniably one of Montréal’s most celebrated attributes. Whatever the season, the city boasts a vast array of dining possibilities for all tastes and budgets. The variety of fare on offer embraces the culinary traditions of some eighty or so cultural communities, includes a wealth of local produce and is enhanced by the boundless creativity of local chefs. This flavourful mosaic has, not surprisingly, spawned an internationally acclaimed rendezvous known as the MONTRÉAL HIGH LIGHTS FESTIVAL, veritable ode to the city’s passion for gastronomy.
