An episode about Montreal’s meals scene is now streamed on Netflix
You may not be able to devour some of Montreal’s most delicious food, but you can see it on the small screen.
From oysters at Jean Talon Market, bagels at St-Viateur, a Schwartz’s sandwich (obviously), and a couple of stops, watch Phil Rosenthal downshift some of our best dishes, try to pronounce “Montreal” correctly, and some nice shots of Montreal before the pandemic.
Rosenthal is perhaps best known for the creator of the longtime sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond, but the filmmaker has now teamed up with Netlfix to produce a documentary about the best restaurants and food cities in the world.
The 51-minute Montreal episode is part of the series’ newly released third season.
“The show’s production team chose to visit Montréal before any other Canadian city, which confirms the city’s unmatched reputation and attractiveness as a top food destination in the country and across North America,” said Tourisme Montréal. “Montreal has built a reputation for a world-class culinary destination over the years and we are thrilled to have the opportunity to showcase this important aspect of our culture to Netflix subscribers around the world.”
During the food tour of Somebody Feed Phil (organized by Tourisme Montréal) last autumn, Rosenthal tried the diverse culinary offerings of the city in the park, Montréal Plaza, Agrikol, Olive & Gourmando, Ma poule mouillée, Cabane à sucre Au Pied de Cochon, Schwartz’s, St-Viateur Bagel and Poissonnerie La Mer.
You can see a few snippets of Montreal in the season three trailer below.
Season 3 of Somebody Feed Phil, including the Montreal episode, will be available on Netflix starting Monday.
