The usual formula for food service in a restaurant is being turned on its head by some of the city’s most exciting young food innovators, who are turning out insanely delicious dishes on the top floor of the SAT (Société des arts technologique), the Main’s most avant-garde music and arts venue. Not only will the small plates blow your mind, but, because the SAT is funded from the public purse and the concept is a “not-for-profit” restaurant, they won’t blow your wallet.

SOCIETY FOR ARTS AND TECHNOLOGY (SAT)

The SAT, or Society for Arts and Technology, is one of Montreal’s most dynamic and innovative spaces.
