A Running List of Montreal Restaurants Opening Their Terrasses, Starting May 28

With over 100 options (and counting) to choose from

For many in the city, May 28 cannot come soon enough. The day brings an eagerly awaited end to Quebec’s nightly curfew and an official start to an already-belated terrasse season — all with an underlying message that things, at last, seem to be looking up for the province, coronavirus-wise.

Restaurants with terrasses are currently hard at work finalizing their set-ups and rebooting their operations, so that diners can — for the first time in eight months — sit down at one of their tables for some grub served on a plate — a real, breakable plate. Here’s a list of restaurants opening their terrasses in the coming days (some on May 31, others gradually thereafter), ordered by borough and neighbourhood. Before heading out, check their social media accounts or call for up-to-date information about opening times and reservations.

And while the excitement in the city is palpable, the return of outdoor dining is by no means a panacea for all. Many establishments in Montreal aren’t equipped with a terrasse because of permit restrictions, interfering bus routes, a lack of space or funds, or other limitations. Others have had to postpone their outdoor dining plans as they contend with construction delays, back-ordered materials, or nearby roadwork. If your favourite destination doesn’t have a terrasse in the works, remember grabbing some takeout and bringing it to a nearby park is still a worthwhile endeavour.

Please note that this list is not exhaustive. If a Montreal restaurant you know is opening its terrasse in the coming days, send us a tip at montreal@eater.com. We will be updating this list until June 1.
