Founded in 2005, Joe Beef is a Montreal icon. The Little Burgundy flagship has a waitlist that goes back months, but the lucky diners who snag a reservation quickly understand the hype. Customers scan the ever-evolving chalkboard menu inspired by a Quartermaster in the British Army to discover exotic meats (sorry, Seabiscuit) and over-the-top items like lobster spaghetti, the foie gras double down, and a lobster and shellfish poutine smothered in lardo. After a few bites, it's no surprise why it's frequented by the world's greatest chefs and international foodies visiting the city. For those looking to get a taste of the legendary eatery sooner rather than later, check out its sister restaurant next door Liverpool House.
