Montreal was abuzz Tuesday evening, not only over former U.S. president Barack Obama'sspeech to the Montreal Board of Trade, but also his dinner date afterward.
After the well-attended event at the Palais des congrès, Obama headed to the Liverpool House restaurant to meet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
David McMillan, the Rue Notre-Dame ouest restaurant's head chef, was obviously very proud to welcome these two particular clients. They dined on Quebec lobster, oysters, steak, and asparagus, among many items.
