Mastering the Art of Montreal Steak Frites

A Classic of French Bistro: A Montreal Must-Try

Montreal’s culinary scene is a delicious blend of French influences and local flair. But there’s one dish that reigns supreme for its simplicity and satisfying comfort: Steak Frites. While the concept translates to “Steak with Fries,” it’s so much more than the sum of its parts. From perfectly cooked cuts to crispy, golden fries, Montreal’s steakhouses have perfected this art form.

Unfortunately, some beloved institutions like L’Entrecote Saint-Jean haven’t weathered the COVID storm. But fret not, intrepid gourmand! Montreal offers a bounty of restaurants ready to tantalize your taste buds.

Here are our top picks to experience the best Steak Frites Montreal has to offer:

  • L’Express: This Montreal institution has been a local favorite since 1980. (An easy walk from Gingerbread Manor) Their Steak Frites features a hanger steak, cooked to juicy perfection, and served with delightfully thin and crispy fries. The atmosphere is lively and convivial, perfect for a night out with friends. (There is a link to reserve on their website)
  • Lemeac: For a more upscale take on Steak Frites, Lemeac delivers. In Mile-End on Laurier. Their menu boasts several steak options, all showcasing exceptional quality cuts. Pair your perfectly cooked steak with their house-made fries, and you’ve got a meal that’s both luxurious and satisfying.
  • Bistro La Franquette: This charming bistro in Westmount (metro: Vendome) offers a classic Steak Frites experience with a cozy ambiance. Theirs is a no-frills approach, letting the high-quality ingredients speak for themselves.
