These 12 Montreal restaurants are on Open Table's Top 100 places to eat in Canada
Maison Boulud at the Ritz-Carlton in Montreal made Open Table's list of the Top 100 Restaurants in Canada for 2019.
MONTREAL -- Twelve Montreal restaurants - and three others in Quebec - have made Open Table's list of the Top 100 eateries in Canada for 2019.
The online restaurant-reservation site says it compiled its list based on some 500,000 verified reviews from its users of more than 3,000 restaurants across the country.
Here are the Montreal restaurants on Open Table's annual list this year, in alphabetical order, with an important caveat: many restaurants - in Montreal and elsewhere - are not available for reservations on Open Table and would not qualify to be on its Top 100 list. (Thanks to Eater Montreal's Tim Forster for that clarification.)
- Chef's Table (now closed)
- Chez Sophie
- Ile Flottante
- L'Atelier de Joel Robuchon
- Le Club Chasse et Peche
- Le Filet
- Maison Boulud
- Paradis BBQ
- Ristorante Beatrice
With 15 restaurants on the list, Quebec is the third-most represented province, well behind Ontario, which has 55 restaurants, and trailing Alberta, which has 19. British Columbia is fourth with nine. Saskatchewan and Newfoundland are the only other provinces represented on the list.
OpenTable also said it gleaned the following dining trends among its users for 2019:
- an increased interest in plant-based diets
- growing popularity of healthy substitutions (cauliflower crust on pizzas, for example)
- an appetite for trying new cuisines
- North American cuisine was most popular for breakfast and lunch; Italian was most popular for dinner
