Mirroring New York City's Restaurant Week and the popularity it has garnered, Tourisme Montreal returns with last year's successful event – and our version of the North American phenomenon – TASTE MTL.
For 11 days, over 100 restaurants will share their creations with the public by offering a three-service table d'hôte menu at the fixed price of $19, $29, or $39. Several establishments will also serve a late-night menu at $19 that may include a cocktail or glass of wine, while others are allowing patrons to bring their own wine. The goal is to make fine cuisine accessible to all while celebrating our city as a gastronomic destination.
Presented by the Produits d'érable du Québec in partnership with the SAQ, the food festival runs between November 1st and 11th. Now in its second year, this edition has asked chefs to get creative by spotlighting one of our nation's prized local products: Maple.
From the Old Port, to downtown, Mile End, and Griffintown, restaurants are gearing up to show us what they've got. The choices are endless and are sure to please all palates. The selection ranges from fine dining institutions like Toqué!, Pastaga, and Europea, to laid-back eateries like Deville Dinerbar, Le Boucan, and Imadake, as well as newcomers to the Montreal food scene, La Société Bistro, and KYO Bar Japonais.
While it may be tempting to stay indoors this month as temperatures begin to drop, Tourisme Montreal takes the festival a step further by organizing culinary tours and special events all over town. Be sure to make your reservations soon – spaces are quickly filling up!
