If you put all of Montreal’s foodie culture on a single table, it would be a stunning smörgåsbord of different heritages, an eclectic array of flavours, and an exhibition of dishes so gorgeous they could only be described as “edible art.” Our flare for fine food and daring dining is in our DNA; so during MTL à TABLE from October 30 to November 9, locals flock to sample the best culinary creations that boil in the creative minds of Montreal’s chefs. This year all of MTL à TABLE‘s 140 participating restaurants will feature wine pairings from France with their exclusive menus. So loosen your belt a few notches, grab some friends, and make a reservation at a romantic or group-friendly restaurant! MTL à TABLE is powered by the SAQ, Mastercard by National Bank & ESKA. Treat yourself during MTL à TABLE, Montreal’s Restaurant Week, by taking advantage of a delicious special limited time Montreal Gourmand offer!
