Montreal excels in the casual watering holes and restaurants department—this is the city of unfussy and dressed-down socializing, where the focus is on the produce, not the people. Henrietta is a pared-back bar with white tile walls and cozy round tables for close conversation; the wine list is extensive and leans heavily on European producers. The food menu features dishes perfectly suited to a few glasses of wine—manchego popcorn, grilled cheese, and oysters—the kind of food that goes down easy and shares well among friends.
