Preview of the 2019 edition of MTLàTABLE
This year marks the eighth edition of MTLàTABLE – Montréal’s restaurant week –, which will take place from November 1 to 13, 2019. The 13-day long ode to gastronomy is presented by Aéroplan. As the main event presenter, Aéroplan will again offer its members some great benefits, such as the ability to book at the restaurant of their choice five days ahead of the general public, along with other exclusive privileges at participating restaurants.
Celebrating Québec’s terroir
MTLàTABLE celebrates Québec’s terroir, in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ), by highlighting the province’s wealth of products and the creativity of our chefs, who will pay tribute to the unique flavours of our province’s ingredients.
The 150 participating restaurants will each offer a three-course, $23, $33 or $43 set-price evening menu, which will feature one or several Québec ingredients. MTLàTABLE is a tasty opportunity for all food-lovers to go on a delicious discovery of several Montréal restaurants or revisit favourites at a wallet-friendly price. Whether you’re celebrating a romantic anniversary or want to revisit your favourite brunch spot, book a family outing or party with a group of friends, this year’s edition of MTLàTABLE will have something to offer everyone.
Brunches are back!
Montrealers’ favourite weekend activity–brunch–is back as an integral part of the MTLàTABLE programme for the fourth year in a row. Participating restaurants will offer a $17 brunch menu giving you the chance to ease into the day with tasty eggs Benedict or a stack of crispy waffles.
As part of the 100th anniversary of Tourisme Montréal and in pursuit of the tradition revolving around MTLàTABLE, Aliments du Québec au menu is proud to be a presenting partner of the Signature Events for the first time.
Seven restaurants will offer five-course table d'hôte menus for $83. These fine dining events will feature mostly Québec products for two to four nights only, from Sunday to Wednesday, from November 1 to 13.
Participating MTLàTABLE restaurants were invited to create a dish using chocolate from Cacao Barry. Throughout the length of the festival, MTLàTABLE diners will be able to taste these sweet or savoury chocolate-flavoured dishes at the 20 restaurants that won the Cacao Barry challenge. The creativity of their pastry chefs will be showcased as they play with the unique flavours of the chocolate.
The list of participating restaurants will be revealed on October 1, 2019, so keep checking the MTLàTABLE website to be among the first people to discover the 150 participating restaurants’ unique menus and book your tables.
MTLàTABLE also thanks ESKA Natural Spring Water and Banque Nationale for their contribution in making this event memorable. Keep an eye out in the next few weeks for some special initiatives brought to you by our partners.
