Montreal has sizable Syrian and Armenian communities, so you’ll find some pretty great Middle Eastern food around town. Damas is perfect for a special night out filled with hand-rolled vine leaves, lemony grilled octopus salad, and whole sea bass stuffed with walnuts and vegetables. Both Québec and Alberta lamb are on the menu, too, with the preparations—grilled or braised—tailored to the uniqueness of each type of meat. For groups, consider going with either the omnivore or fish tasting menu that leaves all the decisions to the chef. Just make sure to save room for their homemade baklava and ice cream.
