A lot about this year’s holiday celebrations will be strikingly different from the ones that came before it, but telling others how much you care is especially important this time around. That includes the city’s restaurants, who’ve continued to feed Montrealers throughout this crazy time. Whether you’re celebrating the beginning of 2021, or the end of 2020, alone or in your home bubble, here are our takeout selections for your revelling pleasure. Most of these spots have extensive wine lists, so don’t forget that bottle of bulles.

4043 Rue Ontario E, Montréal

QC H1W 1T3, Canada

Hochelaga resto Le Flamant has renamed itself La Maison des Pâtes Maison, and that’s (mostly) what it’s about for New Year’s. There’s pasta of every shape and size, from tagliatelle to triangoli, with some gnudi in between. A bevy of sauces are available, too, including a rapini and almond pesto which we hope stays on the menu. Add an in-house clamato with whelks and you’re all set. Takeout only.

345 Rue Villeray, Montréal

QC H2R 1G8, Canada

Spanish specialties, including pan con tomate, jamon serrano, and a deluxe seafood paella are part of Meson’s generous New Year’s Eve offering for two. And there’s more: Basque chocolate cake to finish the year off right, with a big choice of Spanish wines, Xeres, and bubblies to wash it all down.

QC H2S 1K9, Canada

Just in time for the holidays, Mon Lapin 2.0 has a new space and an à la carte festive menu on offer. Check out the duck confit in smoked fat with pine and juniper, the salade rose and the mascarpone-laced buckwheat bûche that chefs Marc-Olivier Frappier and Jessica Noël have been dreaming up since they closed in March. Wines from co-owner Vanya Filipovic round out the offerings. Pick it up or get it delivered by their in-house team.

83 Rue Saint-Zotique E, Montréal

QC H2S 1K7, Canada

What better way to end the year than with Pumpui’s fried chicken, papaya salad, and some Pad Thai? We can’t imagine. Maybe a bottle of Pinard et Filles wine to go with it; check the website to see what they’re offering. You know it will be fun. Takeout only.

5201 Boul St-Laurent, Montréal

QC H2T 1S4, Canada

“Same thing as every night, but more festive” is how the gang at Larry’s describe their New Year’s Eve. Beef with chimichurri and banh mi are on the menu, not to mention banoffee and bulles. Plus their breakfast sandwich for the morning after, once you’ve gotten festive. Place orders for takeout or delivery on their website.

1201 Av. Van Horne, Outremont

QC H2V 1K4, Canada

Chef-owner Fuad Nirabie is up to his usual sumptuous tricks with Damas’ holiday menu: homemade charcuterie, slow-roasted lamb in pomegranate syrup, and assorted baklava are just a few of the treats packed in Damas’ stylish signature banker’s box. You can still order à la carte; their cherry kebabs will surely brighten any New Year’s celebration. Pick it up, or have it delivered if your order exceeds $150 and you live within a 15 km radius.

QC H2W 2M4, Canada

For many Montrealers, dining at L’Express during the holiday season had been a longstanding tradition. This year need not be any different: you’ll just be wearing your jammies while you crunch on your cornichons. A mixed apéro platter, duck and cèpe savoury pie, and a chestnut bûche await you, plus the resto’s famous cave à vin. Takeout only.

3609 R. Saint-Denis, Montréal

QC H2X 3L6, Canada

Vegan sushi with gluten-free options make Sushi Momo a winner all year round; their holiday specials bring it all together with platters of 53, 82, and 104 pieces of veggie maki for your sharing (or not) delight. Their regular omakase menu for two or more are equally interesting options, with miso soup, salad, dozens of sushi, and dessert. Available for takeout, bike delivery, or DoorDash.

43 Rue de la Gauchetière E, Montréal

QC H2X 1P4, Canada

Cantonese cuisine prizes fresh ingredients, especially seafood, for special occasions. Chinatown Cantonese food specialists Mon Nan are featuring abalone to encourage good fortune and abundance this holiday season, along with lobster and their usual wide-ranging menu. Pair your seafood with some Singapore noodles for a terrific sendoff to 2020. Available for takeout or pretty much any third-party app.

3412 Av du Parc, Montréal

QC H2X 2H5, Canada

Park Avenue pizza purveyor Moleskine is ready to help you celebrate the new year with a four-course Italian menu for four, including potato and artichoke soup, an antipasti platter, homemade pasta, and a chocolate and rum crown cake.

438 Rue McGill, Montréal

QC H2Y 2G1, Canada

Portuguese chef Helena Loureiro has put together an extensive regional menu with numerous à la carte options for (small) group dining: a selection of croquettes, cataplana seafood stew, roasted fish, turkey stuffed with chourico and foie gras, and even a leitão à Bairrado (porcelet). There’s an easily navigable holiday menu, too, available until mid-January, and wine options are included. Available for takeout or delivery within a 5 km radius.

5570 Rue Cypihot, Saint-Laurent

QC H4S 1K6, Canada

Chef Danny Smiles’ prepared food venture is in full swing for the holidays. Order in advance for interactive meal kits (aka Chef Danny on video showing you how to make it just right) and a marketplace with loads of party fare; there’s buttermilk-marinated drumsticks for the kids and shrimp-stuffed calamari for the grownups. Don’t miss the desserts from Nonna Maria to make your evening complete, and the pancake kit for the next day. Bonus: Deliveries are conducted with electric cars.

1391 Rue Saint-Jacques, Montréal

QC H3C 1H2, Canada

Following in the tradition of their southern Italian family dinners, Nora Gray is offering a New Year’s Eve three-course meal for two or four, starting with your choice of vegetarian (or not) pâté and ending with struffoli, fried dough tossed in honey. Check out the wine selections curated by Élisabeth Racine, the sommelier for Pumpui as well. Takeout or delivery.

386 Rue Richmond, Montréal

QC H3J 1T9, Canada

The Mediterranean/Middle East sister of sustainable sushi shop Ryu (where you can order sushi and nigiri platters for the night) are celebrating the new year with a range of table d’hôte Mediterranean specials, including honey and baharat-spiced roast chicken meals with all the fixings and Yemeni-style pita. Takeout and delivery handled in house are available.

11604 Boulevard de Salaberry, Dollard-des-Ormeaux

QC H9B 2R8, Canada

Rotisserie Panama has been serving up grilled chicken, lamb chops, and fish, Greek-style in three locations (this one in DDO, plus Park Ex and Laval), and they’ll keep doing so into the New Year. Don’t miss their paper-thin fried eggplant and zucchini, and their rich and tangy tzatziki paired with fried calamari to ring in 2021. Get it in person or have it delivered with UberEats.

3001 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal

QC H4C 1N9, Canada

You won’t have to deal with lineups to get what you need from this popular French diner americanisé: Foeigwa is offering their signature brunch and dinner menu (and, yes, you can add foie gras to anything) throughout the holidays. Keep it festive with their cocktail mixes, supplied by the Atwater Cocktail Club x Milky Way: we’re hoping for either the What’s Up, Doc? — carrot cordial with cranberry and citrus for mixing with rum, or the #cavabienaller (lemon, peach, bitter blood orange) to add to your bubbly. Takeout or delivery with CHK PLZ.

5090 Rue Notre-Dame Ouest, Montréal

QC H4C 1T1, Canada

Chestnuts will be roasting and oysters will be shucked in Elena’s backyard as they make the most of their outdoor space on New Year’s Eve. There will be deep-fried spaghetti balls, timbale — an Italian rice casserole, lasagna-style — and jovial arguments about whether or not their Hawaiian pizza is a travesty (or not). And, of course, wine. All for takeout only.

5893 Rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montréal

QC H4A 1X7, Canada

Family-style Ethiopian food awaits you at the family-run East Africa Restaurant. Start with a base of tangy injera flatbread and build your meal with traditional stews and curries redolent of garlic, cumin, and turmeric: doro watt (chicken curry), one of the most beloved dishes of the region is a must here, while vegans will be happy with split-pea based shiro wott to ring in a healthy new year. Takeout only.

3900 Rue Éthel, Verdun

QC H4G 1S4, Canada

Schor brothers Ari and Pablo are all about comfort food, from braised meats with chimichurri to flan, and their New Year’s Eve menu won’t disappoint. Order from their ever-changing, riotous empanada selection so you can celebrate the next day, too. These boys also do a good job with their wines, so don’t miss out. Available for takeout, SkipTheDishes, or Schordash (in-house delivery).
