What: The greatest thing to come out of Quebec (and let’s face it — Canada) is easily poutine and this annual festival celebrates all of its cheesy, sauce-y (in a French accent, of course), potato-ey goodness. This year’s festival marks its eleventh edition with restaurants all over the city boasting their creativity on this classic dish.

Where: Here’s a list of every participating restaurant.

When: February 1 to 14

What: From the team behind Westmount’s new favourite spot, Guilt & Ivy, comes Heiress, a new dinner lounge with a Modern American menu that has a French bistro twist. The room itself is dripping in crystal chandeliers, black-and-white imagery, and bottles of champagne. At night the tables will turn into bottle service, with some of Montreal’s favourite DJs in an intimate setting until very late. Set to open in February, this one is definitely worth waiting for.

Where: To be announced

Billy K’s Burger’s New Location

Known for its steamies, homemade burgers, and fresh cut fries, Billy K is the go-to spot for all things comfort food. The new location will also offer a student discount, making breaks between classes way tastier.

What: Old Montreal’s favourite spot for late-night fun, 212, is reopening after being closed for the month of January.

With the same sleek, sophisticated, and sexy vibe (have you seen its super cool mirrored ceiling mural?!), 212 proves that not even the coldest of winter can stop Montreal from enjoying the nightlife.
