Leméac on the west end of Laurier Avenue has been a Montréal mainstay for many reasons: a can’t-miss menu, a gorgeous outdoor terrace and a nightowl’s kind of kitchen. The restaurant keeps things fresh and simple, just the way bistro fare should be, serving up a classic menu of steak frites, foie gras au torchon, homestyle blood sausage, and other palate pleasers. Its wine list and selection of Québec cheeses is very respectable and its boutique features gifts and homemade take-away treats.
Monday to Friday, 11:45 a.m. to midnight; Saturday and Sunday, 10 a.m. to midnight. Closed December 25 and January 1.
