Leméac

Outremont
French Bistro

This beloved bistro, now 15 years old, is the ultimate in bourgeois comfort food. The sunny dining room, with expansive windows overlooking the Laurier thoroughfare, serves some of the city’s best classic French cuisine. You can’t go wrong with the buttery salmon or egg-laced beef tartare, the hanger steak with crispy frites, or the lemon tart. A dedicated menu for guests sitting down between 10 p.m. and midnight closing offers a choice of appetizer and entrée for $27—a total steal.
