In a photo that would become iconic, 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.

Here is, in videos and photos, a summary of the evening as seen by social media:
