More often than not, tipsters, readers, friends, and family of Eater Montreal have one question: Where should I eat right now? That’s where the monthly Eater Heatmap has customarily come into play, highlighting restaurant newcomers that show particular promise and the spots crowds are flocking to at the moment.
This month’s map welcomes long-awaited downtown izakaya Nomi, Outremont mainstay-in-the-making Super Condiments, and Montreal’s latest ramen destination Neo Tokyo.
