What could be better than enjoying fabulous French-inspired dishes to celebrate the national holiday of our French neighbours! Since June 22, Montreal restaurateurs can now re-open their dining room to their customers after more than 3 months of forced closure due to COVID-19.
Many of them have struggled to survive this forced break and are now trying, as best they can, to get back on their feet while adopting the new measures required: wearing the mask for employees, social distancing from customers, ability to reduce, etc.
In order to help restaurateurs and celebrate the July 14th National Day as it should be, Outgo offers seven of Montreal's best French restaurant addresses.
