The Montreal food scene is always spectacular, but there’s something about this time of year, when the sun is shining and terraces are open, that makes everything just taste oh so much better.

Even restaurants that have made their way onto the culinary stage in the city in the last little while are about to be discovered in a whole new light… sunlight, that is.

Here are some of Montreal’s latest and greatest spots to check out at the tail-end of May.
