South-West: Our take-out suggestions

pour emporter sud ouest

Once a hotbed of industrialization in Canada, Montreal’s South-West has historically been a working-class neighbourhood. After the exodus of businesses from the neighbourhood in the 1970s, the local economy suffered greatly. Today, with new businesses moving in, this is a vibrant and creative neighbourhood.

Notre-Dame Street West, from Gadbois Park to Griffintown, is undoubtedly one of the most gastronomic streets on the island of Montreal. You’ll find classic addresses as well as several of our favourites. In addition, the South-West is home to the Atwater Market on the banks of the Lachine Canal, a hub for all things delicious, fresh, and local, and a place we love to visit.

While waiting for the dining rooms to reopen, at least we have take-out. Luckily for you, many restaurants have adapted to offer this service and the options available in this neighbourhood are sure to whet your appetite. Here are a few suggestions.

For other suggestions, consult the general list of open restaurants that offer a take-out menu. If you’re craving a particular dish (burger, dumplings, sushi, pizza…), we recommend consulting our other lists of good take-out places, specifically designed to give you ideas in the particular context of the pandemic. It’s always great to discover – or re-discover – your neighbourhood and the best it has to offer.
