Montréal Partners What's New in Montréal

Conferences are a wonderful place to meet new people. During a panel or a networking session, often a spontaneous group forms over a shared interest. The conversation is great, and the group decides to continue the discussion over dinner. The big question is where to go?

These seven Montréal restaurants are perfectly suited for groups of ten people (or even more). 

Tip: it’s always helpful to call the restaurant in advance to secure a table.

Brasserie 701

Located in the heart of Old Montréal in the iconic Hotel Place d’Armes, Brasserie 701 presents contemporary cuisine, inspired by the great French brasseries. Groups are charmed by the warm atmosphere and neoclassical architecture of the spacious dining room. The private room accommodates up to 14 seated guests, while a private section in the restaurant can welcome up to 20 guests. Want to go even bigger? Full privatization of the restaurant is available for dinner up to 100 guests or a cocktail party for up to 200 guests. brasserie701.com/en

 

LOV

An acronym for “local, organic, vegetarian,” LOV stems from the passion of its owners and their desire to get back to the basics by focusing on botanical cuisine. LOV promotes direct communication and fair negotiation between buyers and farmers. It also makes sure that quality is a factor and gives growers a much-deserved voice. Group menus available! lov.com/en

A true landmark, built in 1688 by a French soldier, the Auberge Saint-Gabriel’s décor incorporates iconic touches of Québec history with modern flourishes.
