This characteristic Montréal creativity is evident in many ventures around the city but the one introduced by chef Jérôme Ferrer is exceptionally enticing. The chef behind Europea, one of the most famous restaurants in Montréal, is known for his playful haute cuisine that caters to a clientele in search of an outstandingly delicious experience. Europea, a Grandes Tables du Monde and one of only two Relais et Châteaux restaurants in the city, is equally loved and appreciated by tourists and locals alike. In light of the new dining restrictions, Europea will be the grand stage for a new dining experience that promises to be quite exceptional.
Épicure Land is a new dining experience that transports diners to exotic and magical lands. It is is an immersive adventure in five acts and five stations that is perfectly suited to today’s dining scene. Inspired by a visit to an amusement park, the hour-long event will titillate all five senses and includes live painting, musical performances, the works of Québec painter Guilbo and, of course, some delicious dishes. Diners will start this gastronomic journey by picking up a passport at the first stop, which they’ll then get stamped at every subsequent halt. One of the stations is a stop by the kitchens to chat with the crew and watch them work while another takes participants on a visit to a sugar shack. The last stop is where the amusement park inspiration is the most evident, with sweet treats that include cotton candy and ice cream sundaes. The entire journey includes several surprises for kids and grown-ups alike.
Épicure Land starts June 22 and will be available from Monday to Sunday, from 12 pm to 10 pm. To reserve a day and a time, book your ticket on chef Jérôme Ferrer’s website. Price (including taxes) for 5 services and 1 drink are $50 for adults and $25 for kids under 15.
