You definitely need something to do after opening all your presents and spiking your coffee on Christmas morning.

Some spots are hosting table d’hotes, some brunch, and others their usual menus.

We’ve attached each spot’s website and phone number as we’d highly recommend making a reservation — it’s still Christmas after all, and dining out on the 25th is surprisingly popular.

It’s the biggest day of the year, so why not celebrate with one of Montreal’s most iconic restaurants?

From rib eyes to sirloins, New York cuts, and filet mignons, Gibbys grills out arguably the best steaks in the city.

The spot is in a converted 18th-century stable featuring wood beams, stone walls, and giant fireplaces, all decked out for the holidays.  Besides the decadent steaks, it’s also a phenomenal vibe.

It will be magical.
